Sure, go after it. That's plenty of mileage. You've probably been doing intervals all along. When you ride hard a lot, though, you don't have a lot left over for intervals, because you're already doing them. Be careful not to overdo it. Watch your morning resting HR. If your HR stops coming up on the group rides like it normally does, back off on the intervals. I almost never do formal intervals for this reason. I'd rather ride my a$$ off with my buds. I guess they used to call that racing into shape.
Anyway, your mileage is an effective base. But you might consider logging lower intensity mileage along with the intervals. You'll probably have to.
