FWIW I think the whole “Not all TSS is created equal” line is a bit silly and played out. TSS isn’t supposed to be created equal and is a viable and valuable training metric.
No one, except the completely uninformed, is of the mindset that more TSS is always better.
This theme, which is now ongoing on the podcast, along with the downplaying of CTL and the weak treatment of the metric in the last show was a bit of a bummer. I don’t expect the TR crew to spend too much time on TP metrics or training methods that they don’t market, but I expect a more well informed and articulate explanation.
I get that TR subscribers don’t need to track these metrics because the plan handles it all, but to write off or diminish the potential of something like the PMC for managing fitness and the metrics surrounding it is disappointing.
