I recommend a different tack: build up base consistently for four weeks, then build-in everything else (speed, hills) while continuing to expand volume gradually, with a recovery week every 2-3 weeks.  Hills could just be in the form of running a hilly course and pushing up and over the top of hills.  Speed could start out as tempo or progression runs of increasing length, plus strides, and progress into long (2K-3K) repeats, plus strides.  Also, no “gentle two weeks” — tapering for one week should be adequate.
