I have been running for a good few months now and have got decently fast (5.50 mile,19.15 5km) and was wondering how long it would take me or if it is even possible to break 5 mins for a mile whilst maintaining my current weight (205lbs @ 6'/6'1)
50 seconds is a massive chunk to take off a mile time. For comparison, McMillan's race time predictor would make it equivalent to reducing 10k time from 42 minutes to 36. You're obviously not a traditional middle distance runner weight, as shedding a few pounds would certainly help. Why are you keen to maintain weight, are you a rugby player or something?
