Oil concern (bought 5w20 instead of 5w30 by mistake)

I recently did a tune up on my car, including changing the major fluids. Once I had filled everything I realized I had bought 5w20 instead of 5w30. I decided since this oil was only going til the next round number on the odometer, which is only about 2,000 miles away, that it would be okay. Is it safe to assume that I will be ok doing this? By round number I change my oil every 5,000 miles, so 170,000 will be the change then 175,000.
