Don't want to step on any toes but malmo mentioned "running to the barn" as often as you can handle and I don't think included workouts specified as "tempo" runs. Therefore you could include 5 "tempo" runs a week...or I guess....more if you'd like.
I doubt that Malmo agrees with you. 5 or more tempo runs per week isn´t good. What is more important than the frequency of tempos, it´s how long tempos you run. The high glycogen depletion from a long run stimulates mitochondrial biogenesis more than shorter runs done with higher frequency does. Another advantage is that you don´t have to run almost every day at one particular intensity. Variety of training is very important.
