View Full Version : What kind of 5K time can a 4:48 miler get?

Say the runner puts in about 20-30 miles a week during the summer and trains really hard in practices. What can he expect?

I would be optimistic and say anywhere from 17:30-18:00, the 20-30 miles a week are ok, but if it was raised up more to 50ish than the time would very quickly drop around to 16:30-17:15.

Looks like I have to start running some more.

I figure the next 2 weeks I can do 30+ miles a week, but I think I will push it to 40-50

I will be sure to keep you up to date on how the progress is going.

I know that my sister's fiancee is not a runner that practices a lot but he will run 5K charity runs in about 18:00 but like I said that is with very little if any training.
