I ran my PR in spring 2004 on a relatively flat course (similar profile to NYCM). My mileage base has been higher this time – I was running around 70-80mpw before my PR race and have up’d it to around 90mpw this time (highest mileage was around 108). My speedwork has been lacking though, since I got injured a couple of months ago and had a 3-4 week lay-off. I recovered in time to get a bit of speedwork in over the past 6 weeks or so, but it’s hard to do anything other than hill repeats & not-so-fast tempo runs where I live!
Does this help?
