Details? Well, there's a couple of details that are important. #1 would be talent. ; ^ )
Would it help if I told you that in August of 1987 I ran 2 miles in 22 minutes (11 minute mile), 4 months later I ran a 5K in 18:20, I took 3 months completely off, but then in another 2 months of training I ran the mile in 4:50?

There are a multitude of workouts that need to come together to reach peak performance. I cover some of this in my threads on Balnced training and periodization. In general, you want lots of easy mileage year round with periods of faster training leading up to your races. The shorter the race, the more fast training you need. Nobody is going to run their best mile by running only slow mileage. However, nobody is going to do it either running every other day.
