It's not a mistake. It's the first test that pages you a bit.
If you look at the next week you have intervals of 18 and 25 minutes. The last day of week 6 is 25 min.

By that time you will have not only physically be capable, but after the 20 min run in week 5, internal runs of 10 minutes will seen like a cake walk.

I've done similar programs before and this is typical for building endurance, both mentally and physically.
