Yes, absolutely. Just be aware of which weeks are “deload” weeks in your plan and if you’re trying to perform at your best along the way, schedule your races at the end of a deload week and replace whatever run was planned that day with the race itself. If you plan a race on a non-deload week, be prepared to feel a tad sluggish and not as well recovered as you might be able to be after a deload week or peak. Also, keep in mind that the workouts provided within the training plan progress week after week to prepare you to race at your very best at the end of the training program. Don’t expect big PR’s when your workouts haven’t prepared you specifically for race-readiness yet. That said, you can still PR, especially if you’re newer to running. Go for it!
