Very interesting discussion indeed. Thanks Scott for the detailed responses.
So I have another question:
Let’s say you plan for an event such as a 1 or 2 day ascent (mostly mountaneering goal at some middle altitude 3000-4000m) and lay down your 8-week training plan
Do you only focus on arriving at that goal with the necessary CTL or the fatigue (ATL) and form metrics(TSB) are also/more important(as in arriving at your objective as rested as possible)??
Because if at that last week you drop volume to taper for the climb, CTL drops a bit(at least for me now that I started using TP and plan ahead) and as a result TSB increases.
