In my opinion that is too much. My way of splitting things would be to work for 5 weeks focusing on strength & speed, with 4 strength sessions per week, and 2 speed sessions. I would train on mon, tues, thurs and fri. Training 6 days consecutively places far too much stress on the CNS and will lead to overtraining. It is best to train for 2 days, rest, then another 2 days. I would then have a 7 day break before completing another 5 weeks dedicated to conditioning, albeit with an emphasis on maintaining the other abilities already worked on. For example you could have 3 weights session (only 1 leg session due to high demand on legs through running), 1 speed session and 2/3 conditioning sessions with one of those being a cross training session.
