To go from 73 minutes to 60 is a challenge. I would suggest you will not do it on 25 miles a week. I have run sub 58, when recovering from injury (4 months out) I still manage 65 minutes - jogging.

You should look at increasing training (over time) to at least 5 sessions per week. You will need to include a long run of 15 miles and be working on 10k speed.

If you find a group to run with it would help a lot. Fast 15 milers hurt unless you are with others.

Paul, I think you'd be pushing it a bit, I've knocked nearly six minutes of my first Great South run time but it took three years and a lot of effort, join a club and get some support and coaching, it makes a difference.

A few years back, RW published Bruce Tulloh's 100 steps to fitness, with step 100 being "run 10m in 60 mins". I can't remember the other 99, but there were lots of intermediate goals. The idea was that in order to run 10 in 60, you have to run 4 in 24 first. Then train to run 5 in 30. Then 10k in 37. And so on.
In other words, you have to put in the speedwork to get quick, plus some regular longer runs to get the stamina up.
Once you can knock out 5 in 30 without trying, then 10 in 60 is realistic. Otherwise you may wish to have a different target.

Big C - Do you have a link to that article?

Would fit in well with an ongoing discussion over on Sub 3 thread.

Sub 60 10 miler sounds like a tall order. It could take you a couple of years.

I can run 70 min 10 miles on no training at all but would take 12 months of solid training to get below the hour.

Just to stir things up..
I've run 58 mins 10 miler off just 20 mpw with no runs in training longer than 7 miles.
