I am always confused by the “train at your level” idea – if you are not pushing a bit more (increasing effort) where do you improve?

A gradual increase of pace over four months shouldn't create burnout – as long as cutback weeks are in there.  

But I'll find this out for sure – after Saturday I am training specifically for Al's.  My goal is to race well, possibly score (or be a good back-up score) for Team Hillrunner/InStep and just because times are easy to measure – sub 33:00.
