My curreng mile PB is 6:09. Although a few yeaes older now it was set in 30C heat. I've recrly run a 6:33 final mile at parkrun so like to think with 6 months perfect training I could dip below 6 minutes - say 5:58.

I don't think six months of perfect training would have as much impact on my mile time as a 30-minute warm-up. Track mile PB 7:05, fastest track mile in 2018 7:18 ... maybe close to seven minutes but no more than a few seconds under it.

Funny, you said 5m49 a couple of years ago JR; and 7m05 for you too Velo (it's on the linked spreadsheet at the side).

I think I'll stick with my 5m29

Mmm - I think age is not now on my side! In my head I'd like to think I could do 5:49 but am not so sure anything other than scraping just under 6 would be possible.....

I forgot about that - I put 5:15 back then but have since managed 5:18 on the track and 5:11 on a totally not legit dead straight mile alongside a rowing lake (with a following wind!). I don't do anything that approximates MD training, so with 6 months to go at it I'd like to think that I could get under 5, but it would be awfully painful trying
