This is just building base, once you get those 8 week down start adding some intensity.
I would switch the weds to start some progression in longer repeats with shorts recoveries. Saturday to remain as a tempo, try not to kill yourself on the tempo just hit that zone of pace until you race, if you PB adjust the tempo pace with daniels vo2 calculator (I interpret it with a few seconds either side).
Week 1)10 x 2 mins hard / 2 mins steady
2) 7 x 4 min off 90s steady
3) 20 x * 400 off 45s @ 10k (could also use 16 x 400 off 45 or 75s @ 5k)
4) 6 x 4 mins off 1 min jog
5) 4 x 6 mins off 60-90s jog
6 )5 x 1 mi off 2 min jog
7) 8 x 3 min (90s recovery) rep 3,5,7 @ 3k all other reps @ 10k.
Is the sort of weekly progression i would use, probably look to race after that. Alot of these sessions are more focused at 8/10k but will make you alot stronger aerobically and will transition nicely
Strides if you really want to 3x a week but i find they can tighten you up especially with increasing mileage significantly, play it by ear.
On race week (racing sat) i'd drop Thurs to 6 mile easy, and do some sort of sharpener on the Weds like a cutdown ladder (Ben Barrows uses a nice one) or light tempo with some 200s (2000m @tempo, 2 mins jog 5 x 200 off 90s).
