After this week I'll know better where my 2 mile time lies and I can readjust from there. I can definitely ditch the running after my next PT Test.

I just finished my DL day yesterday and already I'm wondering with my running stuff if I should dial my training days to 3 times a week because today I'm hurting can't imagine going out and running repeats today at all.

Have you had any success with full body split type stuff? Wendler had a split in v2 where he had a 3 day where you squat 3 days a week, 2 days are lighter load days, 1 day is a 5/3/1 style day and you pull and push every day as well but lighter loads on the other days and push that lift one day. I wonder if that would be better than I'm only training 3 days a week, running twice a week leaving 2 days for rest/recovery type stuff.

Yes absolutely. Including a squat press and pull every training day is one of my core sensibilities and my overall preference. As for the split you're talking about I'm essentially doing that now...Dead and Bench, Squat and Press, though in season it can gets a little squirrelly. Just recognize, the press is waaaaay back burner and you'll do fine.
