Lol! Since you are not on the equator, maybe 800 or so mph.

Back to the OP. Decades ago the formula for me was more miles at a higher cadence with more hills. A buddy of mine and I used to ride the riverbed once a week after work that invariably turned into a race. The more hard miles I rode in the hills, the faster I was on the flats.
