IMO, this article is for ultra marathoners who have a high degree of fitness and the focus is week to week.

As an ultramarathon athlete, you are better off completing your hardest workouts (like the 8 hill repeat workout mentioned above) when you are most rested, and then backing off the volume of workload (like the 6 hill repeat workout mentioned above) as you accumulate fatigue over time.

This concept may or may not apply to road cyclists but may have some implication for long distance cyclists.
