Default How should I distribute these workouts across the week?

I have nothing to do with my life until the end of January. My programming for the next month is focused on technique, technique, and more technique, and I'd like to use the extra time to work my technique further by adding in light lifting workouts in the mornings on top of my regular schedule. However, I'm not sure how to distribute all of my workouts across the week.

My "regular" lifting workouts at this moment don't work the Olympic lifts over 80%, and when it gets that high it's for singles. They have some strength work at the end, which can reach to 85% (but not often).

My conditioning workouts are off of the Performance Menu WOD, so they're all fairly short but heavy.

The light workouts I want to add in would be solely focused on the core lifts (no squats or extra work) and weight wouldn't go over 60%. Just lots of triples and technique and speed practice.

These are the number of workouts:
4 regular lifting sessions
2-3 conditioning sessions
2-3 light light lifting sessions

How would you stack these across the week? Like I said, my schedule is wide open.
