    ...well, maybe not. But he's rocking a CTL over 150 at this writing, and has started tapering for Moab. This should be fun to watch: http://teamhealthfx.com/blogs/dave_harris/archive/2006/09/27/1879.aspx

    Given the amount of data Dr. Coggan has seen that suggests that a CTL this high is likely to lead to overtraining, Dave's undergoing quite the experiment. I also wonder if the sort of training he's doing (ultra-marathon) is perhaps more conducive to high CTL than a broader mix of intensities would allow.

    I think it interesting, in that AC has said this has a chance to lead to overtraining, yet DH has built to this CTL over the last couple of years.

    If I remember correctly, last year he was running about 135 for a period of time...

    Remember, the harder you train, the harder you can train...

    Besides, isn't ramp rate more important than CTL WRT overtraining? :confused:
