In brief: Two different goals?

The best way to increase your enduance is to run whatever you can comfortably do and increase that amount by about 10% on a weekly basis.
That will help you be able to run further. Now if you want to run faster, you must work on speed training. That will involve a combination of short sprints of about 60-90 seconds with 90% intensity and shorter 10-15 seconds sprints at almost top speed.
