Forever - Choosing Different Anchors Based on Time?

Finishing up a deload week now after completing 6 weeks of 5s pro SSL. Last semester of college is about to start, and I’m gonna be a bit busy. I also just want to split up my training a bit differently for a while and spend a little less time with the bar these next few months.

I thought I’d use the “limited time” anchor or a 2-day original 5/3/1 cycle, then start a full “limited time” leader-anchor program. I imagine it’s fine but I want to know if there’s some reason you should really focus on sticking with leader-anchor template pairs, or if lifting 2 days a week for 4 months is a bit long to do so.
