I don't doubt that you've accomplished what you say you have on the training you mention. However, I'm sure you've also hung around some sub-2:40 and sub-2:30 types. Wouldn't you agree that your training is pretty rare in these circles? Having hung around with some people of this capability, I'd say it's much more common to see guys logging 3000, 3500, or even 4000+ miles per year. Even of the relatively low-mileage crew, I don't see many bouncing around widely enough that they are running 80-100 MPW at times during a year in which they log less than 3000 miles in total. This wide variation of volume, as opposed to more consistency and balance, is what concerns me probably even more than whatever the final number may be.
