Oxygen debt is a certain amount of oxygen required by muscle cells to oxidize lactic acid produced as a result of anaerobic respiration, to $C {O}_{2}$ and ${H}_{2} O$ and to replenish the exhausted $A T P$ .
Thus, at the end of the activity, when there is enough oxygen; lactic acid is oxidized to $C {O}_{2}$ and ${H}_{2} O$ and $A T P s$ are released. And hence the oxygen dept has been repaid.
