Either way is a valid workout, but it varies depending on your goals. If you are focusing on anaerobic work capacity, then I would stick with the full 5' or longer recoveries. If you think about equal work/recovery intervals, then you're going to cut power significantly on the work intervals, but it will improve your recovery ability and give you some race feel for a hard course/hard race.
