Now I just need to decide if I'll settle for completing it once, or if I want to give it another go before moving onto week 6.

It doesn't have to be pretty, it just has to get done.
Not being any expert at all, it would be my guess that this is designed as the "long run" for the week, and then the plan backs right down again for the start of week six. I see repeating days as needed, but I don't know that this is one I'd repeat. I don't think we're supposed maintain runs of 20 minutes at this point in the game. I liked your plan of repeating days in week five...I might move on to week six with that same plan. You don't want to overtax your body, and I think there's a very valid reason week six backs down to five and eight minute run intervals again. Wingz??
Good points regarding me doing another 20min run. Considering that I did 3 days of w5d1 and another 2 of w5d2 before going onto the BIG RUN (so far), I think I'm good to go with week 6 (which I forgot was similar to week 5's anyway).
I'm slower than a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter, but I run.
