What would be the point of sharpening leg speed at this point?

Well said.  I think a tempo run or short hill bursts once a week would benefit me just as well anyway without hindering my mileage building.  The 200 meter strides were probably a bad idea at this point in training. 

I am also a little confused about tempos/fartleks/hill burst.  Are these still considered aerobic?  If so then in theory can we assume that they can be implemented weekly with base building without causing problems??  Example…30 mpw and 1 day add a tempo at end of a run.  Next week go 33 mpw and add hill bursts 1 day of the week at end of a run.  Next week 35mpw and add fartleks throughout a run.  Alternating between those 3 workouts each week. 

Thanks
