RoadWarrior - you sound like you have it all planned out and good luck with it. The only comment I would make is that I dont believe you need the 5K/10K/HM times you suggest to go sub 3. Looking at McMillan for instance for a 2:58FM he says 18/38 and 1:24 would be good enough.
The other thought is that you imply that you will be doing ~60mpw at an average of 7mm or MP. At least that is how I read it. That is way too fast for marathon training and would be more suitable for someone trying to break 6:30 pace (2:52).
When you say sub 3 that normally means high 2:50s, just dipping under 3 hours but I suspect you are intending training to go much faster than that
You don't need deltoid muscles to run 20 miles Roy - I dont want to hear any more excuses
