Phase one:
- 12 weeks
- lots of easy running, as much as you can handle
- once to twice a week a tempo run
- fartlek as often as you feel
- strides 2-3 times a week

Phase two:
- 4 weeks
- two to three times a week do a hill circuit

Phase three:
- 8 weeks
- 2-3 do some track work

Yup, lots of people have run very fast doing just this. Probably not a bad idea to go the Lydiard route. You can even get a plan specifically for you here:
