I am also a long way off of my IM in September so at this stage still want to concentrate on building endurance.
I'll have a read up of Maffetone later on. Is there anything wrong with it?
Maybe the intervals were too hard before. Maybe you came into them with a big volume of endurance base and felt you could fly as a result? And maybe if you'd included a sensible amount of more intense running earlier on, your body would have been more ready for that type of load. Intervals don't break people, ego does.
Though there's nothing wrong with Maffetone, either. Different strokes.
Personally, I'm racing Wales too. And I'm doing intervals.
