I agree with you swampy.
I mention CTL a lot in my posts only because it kind of paints an overview of how much training I am doing (or lack of training) rather than writing paragraphs of details. Same goes for when someone else tells me their CTL and I get a very big picture glimpse at their training load without going into all the finite details. Sort of a big picture hint of Training or Detraining.
So I agree that it has nothing at all to do with performance.
js, I hope you can kick this thing soon.
