Yes, I am also looking for a sub-90 in two weeks time, but it's a just-about-possible time rather than a probable. My Marathon PB (debut!) is 3:28:43 in Apr 2014, 10K is 41:44 (in 2012). According to the calculators, half M seems to be my best distance.
Recent half times have been: 1:32:11 (sep 2012), 1:30:17 (mar 2013), 1:31:16 (sep 2013). So I just need 18 seconds off my PB!
I'm similar to you, TR, in that my mileage averages about 30 usually, but I have ramped up to 40ish in the last few weeks. Unlike you, I'm yet another forty something y/o male.
Any thoughts on tapering out there? Aside from not doing a bootcamp the day before ... (nice blog, TR)
