If sat will get to 10, and sun will get to 20, what does the rest of the peak week look like?
If you're a relative newbie and this is your first marathon, I wouldn't make the long runs even harder with stonking hills involved too....one factor at a time...
Are you dropping the hill rep sessions scheduled midweek on the Hal Higdon plan? They are scheduled every fortnight for strengthening, with the tempo on alternate weeks. This in addition to the weekend plans would be a lot of hill work for VLM.
I'm not a high mileage runner myself (somewhere between 35 - 60pw for marathon training). Your base mileage coming into the training is on the low side. Personally I would be looking to put in a medium long run midweek (10 - 16 miles) to help with endurance.
