Fares ex London on OW airlines in general are rarely, if ever, mileage run worthy (at least by my definition) unless a genuine mistake fare comes up. If you are an US citizen based in London, I'm guessing that there a couple of trips a year across the Atlantic that you will need to make in any event.

If you only need 55k miles to make EXP at this stage in the year, that will take you from your current 45k to around 65k miles leaving only 35k to go. Question - why the panic about mileage running so early in the year?

If you do really feel a need to put in a couple of MRs, I'd keep an eye on the MR deals page and perhaps look for some suitable US domestic MRs that you can combine with one of your TATL trips. (or, once you have dates for a TATL trip, do your own research using the tools mentioned in these threads to look for MR worthy deals in the US that match your dates).
