Finding a 5K plan...

Well, i'm looking for a program to 'train' for my new years eve run. I'm not the biggest fan of the distance, i'm most comfortable with the 5 mile to half marathon distance. I know one thing, the program will call for trackwork (or speedwork) at probably 3K race pace.. yikes. Oh well, that'll get me poring through my running books in the next few weeks, but in the meantime, any tips would be appreciated.

Took two days off cause I really didn't have the time to fit in the running. Today, back on my five-to-six-day-a-week plan: 10K (6 miles) through the city

i would suggest just picking any 5k training plan. Basically it's going to be about intervals, intervals and more intervals with a long run thrown in. Here's one: http://www.runnersworld.com/article/0,7120,s6-238-244-259-6406-0,00.html
I've used the marathon training plan and it worked out okay.

Thanks Arcaner, I will check it out. The more I think about it, the more I'm going to make it a fun 5K. I'm not sure I can put the time for speed training. We'll see how december goes :)
