I would guess once per week would be enough especially during competition phase. You could add a unilateral exercise in for the other day and be good to go. Right now you should be looking to just maintain strength and once a week would easily do that. Does 85% of max effort mean 85% of a max? If so I think that is a little high for mid distance maybe. Are there warmup sets prior to this building up to 85?
