I am not quite where I need to be at this stage of my training. I have scheduled an 8k tempo run. I won't be able to do it. I will burn out at about 5k.
The question is this. Am I going to get more benefit out of a 5k tempo, or an 8k at a slower pace?
Everything about the training process, including programs, experiences, etc.

Tempo runs typically have good aerobic training benefits once they get to 20 minutes, so 5K is absolutely useful, especially if you can get to the same total distance with warmup and cooldown. Another related option to consider is to break the tempo portion into two or more shorter pieces separated by recovery jogs.
