Perhaps I do train closer to race pace than some recommend. That is a change in training I began a year ago and it has shown great results. It resulted in me running my last 2 marathons with negative (or even splits). In both races it was easy to achieve the negative split.

How do you know that the faster training resulted in the negative splits and not something like the 65-70 mpw you were doing?

Have you ever taken a plan from Pfitz, Daniels, Beck, Glover, etc. and followed that, rather than creating your own? With your mileage, it seems like one of Pfitz’s 70 mpw programs (18 or 24 weeks) would fit into your schedule.
