from all this intensity?

your training is giving the impression of staleness, as are your race results.....?

I've had 3 days off. And I feel bouncy.

I was thinking the same. Looking at intensity graphs, very rarely anything below 4 and 5. Base aerobic stuff is just as (if not more?) valuable. Check out Nixon's training log for an extreme example.

I think he gets more enjoyment from running than he gets from results - may suggest he wants to get quicker, but if he did tail off and get faster he'd be forever complaining that he wants to do lots more, so there is a balance and its down to what he wants more

Richard is right; I'm more bothered about enjoying myself than aiming at a specific race to the detriment of everything else. I'm not elite enough for that!
