Hello Vicky, and welcome.
1. Try and add some MP, even if just a few miles at end of a LR/MLR. Good to get a feel of MP befroe race day. The MP LRs are tough, you are not alone in not being able to complete them. I have often crashed and burned, but the more you do them, the stronger and better you get...in theory.
2. Intervals are coming. Just like chrismas. They are of secondary importance to the longer slower runs and the LT runs. Your HM was maybe slower due to all the training?
In short, don't panic. Stick to the plan. Onwards and upwards. Etc.
Chick - 10 weeks?!? Good luck with that. I am trying to be teetotal 4 days a week at the moment, and that's a struggle!
