Mario's Programme looks pretty solid.

If you've got a smartphone go grab RunKeeper or similar and run 5K and check your pace.

Knowing the pace you are running on Race Day and sticking to it is essential - you'll probably get super enthusiastic on the day and go out hard, and if you're body doesn't know what 5k feels like you'll have a miserable time at around 3k or so.

5K is easy for anyone of half decent fitness - do Mario's programme, practice your race day pace.
