I left work yesterday (48th and Baseline in south Phoenix) at 4:10 and made it to Camelback and 91st (where I stopped to eat) around 5:15 or so.
I take I-17 in heavy rush hour traffic twice a week to play roller up at Castle, and appreciate the board at 7th Ave. that is typically accurate in its estimate of time to Peoria Rd. and 83rd Ave. You definitely don't want to take 10 across the center of the city if you're coming from the east side.
After connecting back onto I-10 westbound, take one of 67th, 75th, or 83rd Ave up to Glendale. It's a bit of surface street driving, but nobody is employed in Maryvale anyway for there to be much of a rush hour.
