recent workouts

I'm trying to run faster in my workouts. My marathon training program helped me build a base, but the base was fairly slow (~10:00 minutes/mile). Needless to say, any speed that I had evaporated when grinding out lots of slower miles. Now I want to recover some of the speed with the hopes of breaking the 20:00 minute barrier in the 5K. I just signed up for the State Capitol 5K in St. Paul on October 2 - my goal is to break 20:00 that day.
