RE: Brazier has apparently only been running 35 mpw
Yes he only runs 35 mpw. But he's fast because just about everything he does is near 100% effort and there are more than 2 workouts in the week. More than two workouts is possible because the volume isn't very high. He is just incredibly fast and holds on long enough to get the job done in a 1500. His 3k would be terrible compared to his 1500, probably like 8:20. Meanwhile Craig Engles can run under 7:50 in a 3k because he runs more mileage while still running 1:44 and 3:35 for 800/1500.

Think of running 5 x 300 workouts all out, (2 or 3 x 500 )+ (4 x 150) extremely hard, each with a mile or two warm-up and then a 5-7 mile 'long run'... These shorter but high intensity workouts are what Brazier does, while people like Clayton Murphy do more volume and slightly less intensity. Both can get the job done in the 800/1500, but the latter will give you even more range up to 3k and possibly even 5k.
