Lactate is the by product of glucose utilisation by muscle cells. Lactate is commonly associated with burning muscles, and reduced performance. Before your muscles reach this stage, oxygen is utilised to turn oxygen into glucose for energy.

 

If you choose to have your lactate content assessed, you will find out the maximum heart rate or maximal effort/ intensity that you can maintain for an extended period of time without lactate leaving your muscles and "overflowing" into your bloodstream, causing a decrease in muscle contraction capacity, which causes that 'heavy legs', and possibly nauseous feeling you have mostly likely felt during high intensity training. Knowing your lactate threshold can identify what training you need to do to increase your speed and endurance before lactate affects performance.
