CFE for 5k run distance?

I know that CFE is more for endurance athletes, and a 5k distance isn't exactly endurance (at least I don't think it is), but would the program still be useful for someone who is trying to run 3 miles in 18 minutes? My best time so far was a 22:18, which was without any real running program other than running 3-6 miles a few times a week (inconsistently), along with following the crossfit main page WODs. Overall, what I'm looking for is to run an 18 or sub 18 3 miler while making strength gains.

5k is an endurance event. CFE might work for you.

Ahh ok. I've always thought of endurance events as marathons and such. Thanks for clearing it up.

Also, do you think following the CFFB Strength WODs with the CFE running WODs would be a good idea? Or would it be too much?
