RE: Is bringing down a 22:30 minute 5k down to 19:5X in 5 months possible?
Yes, definitely. I will say one thing though, mileage is not necessary for everyone for that time. I ran sub 20 (road) off 30mpw in high school, so you don't need 50mpw to do it. I wouldn't suddenly go from 10mpw to 50mpw or whatever. I'd gradually increase your mileage, run races regularly and assess it from there. It would be best to get the maximum decreases in race times from the minimum increases in mileage, as it gives you more potential to continue lowering your times.
