Nice goin Banana Man. You made your goal on a tough course after a bad start
Keep up the good work--well done.
Any thoughts on a 4 week programme that might help me go sub 40.
I'm a big believer in basing workout paces off current fitness level rather than goal pace. When you do this, workout paces will get faster because race times will improve, but it keeps us from getting ahead of ourselves and able to consistenty keep up with training.
When you're on your deathbed, you won't be wishing that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will be wishing that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
Some key questions (forgive me if you've already answered them somewhere):
How old are you?
How long have you been back running, and what has your weekly mileage average been for last few months?
How many days per week do you usually run and how many do you plan to run going forward?

2 minutes per mile slower than current 5k pace is a good easy pace.
