Run is way ahead of where it was last year at this time. Here is a comparison of miles per week for the same time period from last year to this year:
Nov 2006-March 2007
Nov 2007-March 2008
Many more miles put in this year vs last year. Only had 1-2 30+ mile weeks last year, so far this year I've had 7 weeks of 40-50 miles. Of course most of this has been in getting ready for the Shamrock Marathon March 16th.
In addition to all the miles, long runs have been up 21 miles. And once mid Feb came around some interval/speed work was added that included:
A half marathon training run in 1:30:08.
Interval run of 7 1-mile repeats with 1 minute rest in between. Ran the first at 6:20 and the last at 6:05, each mile was faster than the first.
The only setback so far this year has been a cold that derailed my last week of February and basically had me start the taper 1 week early for the Shamrock marathon.
Overall the run is much improved from the last two years, which should make for a fun season.
