If I can only do a long run on the weekend, which program on the treadmill to do mid week?

Hello,

 

I am a fairly new runner (started about a year ago).  On the weekends I am able to run an hour straight (almost 5 miles).

 

I don't have the time to run an hour during the week.  I have a treadmill at home with the various workouts:  Fat Burn, Hills, Speed Interval.

 

Which program do you think would help my running during the week?   I can fit in about a 40 minute workout.  I am in my mid 30's, good health.  I am also doing a Kettlebell workout once or twice a week to help tone up.  I could stand to lose 10 pounds, so the Fat Burn sounds like it would be good (it's interval as well), but I'm assuming any of the 3 will help me lose weight.

 

Editing to add:  My main concern isn't weight loss, but rather looking for which program will help my overall running performance.

 

 

Thanks!
