I think this has been covered but consider training in cycles focusing on stressing different systems as you progress. Can’t say enough about establishing a base and then focusing on LT and speed. I agree with Zeek that 4 workouts a week is too much. If you run MP followed by a long run on Saturday and Sunday you should need at least 2 days of recovery. Otherwise, that Tuesday workout may not give you the desired result. Rest is critical.

Also agree with Tomo, throw some races in there to see where you are. Instead of predermining your training paces now, use the races to estimate what your pace should be. Check out Ryan’s calculator, it helps.

The thing I like is consistency. I agree with PSKI that if you can hold this, you’ll get where you want but there may be better ways to get there.
