Topic - Marathon: any point in short intervals?

Mark Torrance on 16 Mar 2012
Several interesting threads about intervals recently. I thought I'd start another:

I want a quick (by my standards) marathon time, and have no 5k or 10k aspirations. I've got plenty of base miles. My typical midweek sessions since January has involved something intervals not shorter than 1 mile (so 6 x 1 miles at about 6:20/m this week with 3 miles slow either side).

I've noticed I have "speed" written at the top of my schedule in a couple of weeks time. Any benefit from doing some shorter, faster intervals? If so, why?
