Lindsay was nowhere near capable of running 46:00. Not one race in his career indicated that. In fact, every race in his career --5k, 8k, 10k, 12k, 15k, 20k HM -- points to 47:00, which is what he did. Lindsay ran many 10 milers and won many of them, but his best was 47:02, an AR at the time. No need to embellish upon his already excellent career.
Here is your official US record progression.
