The point is that even if a 19 minute 5Ker ran 7:00 to 7:30 pace, it's not going to be "very easy"

for someone who runs very low mileage (15-25mpw), it's possible 7:00-7:30 pace is the pace they actually run. i know high schoolers who run 19mins for 5K and train at 7:00-7:30 pace (or claim they do), heck i was one of them back then, but my pace was probably closer to 8min/mi. but, i think Kip has averaged about 45mpw for the 2010 year according to his 2010 mileage total on his facebook wall (something like that)
