That sounds sensible. Most of my training runs, I don't push hard and actually enjoy running. Speeding up would mean less enjoyment.
There is almost no doubt that you can get to 35 flat for 10k on 30 miles per week.
However, in order to improve that much you are going to have to get through your fear. "I feel tired, my calves and feet hurt and I tend to develop little pains so I am forced to reduce my mileage back for fear of injuries." No actual injuries just soreness.
A 35 min 10k is completely different than a 37 min 10k and you are going to have to remodel your body to get there. This remodeling will hurt however you do it.
You can do it most safely by going up to 40 or 50 mpw or you can run harder a couple of days a week, go through a different kind of pain, and get there on 30 mpw. The different workouts to run 35 min are going to make you just as sore as the extra miles did.
