PDavey is on Fetch and at last check had not run faster than 17.27
Did 19.37 to 16.45 inside 6 months off nothing but a weekly pure speed session, base miles and parkruns. About 30 miles a week running plus cycling.
Having read the thread it seems the 5km is not really the priority and I would say if you really want to run a fast 5km it needs priority, don't get me wrong you get some benefit and progress from the Marathon base work but you need short reps to get the leg speed and those sessions are often neglected by marathon runners.
