You're not going to nail fast runs by abandoning frequent practice.

It's actually impossible for you to hit a physical roadblock, because even if you don't think you're progressing, your muscle memory and agility is always improving. Keep working on those fast runs at slow tempos and gradually speed them up.

Results don't happen instantly and you have to work for your reward. Giving up frequent practice is not the way to go about it.

As for improvisation, you really need to start playing with other musicians.
