thank you for the comment. However, I've never heard of the book, but that general knowledge came from somewhere. I didn't invent it, though I use it and find it valuable. It rather permeates training references now. I'm not entirely sure of the scientific basis. I've heard that top riders have deviated substantially from this dictum with good results. I rather think it depends on one's entire training continuum and goals. Whatever, I've had good results from this advice and I'm using it again this year. My moderate aerobic intensity period is a little longer than usual this year as life and weather have happened, but my strength work is on target.
Results matter
