Polarized training saved my cycling life!

Episode 9. After listening to Steven Seiler (on this and other podcasts) as well as Steve Neil (on another podcast) my cycling life has avoided recurrent over training & burnout phases. I started cycling about four years ago using TrainerRoad; HIT sessions were great at first but I soon realized that the method TR offered was biased toward selling their HIT product. Their advice devolved into distracted babbling.
It led to recurrent overtraining with decreased performance which was demotivating. Now with Polarization in my training I continue to improve and feel great. I only wish TrainingPeaks would offer an app to view and perform workouts (from workout-builder) on an iPad. I could finally drop my TR account! Please.
