For the reason you state, it sounds like a good idea. I don’t think you have to avoid it, just be careful on the long day. You should expect to be slower and accept that. Don’t try and keep the pace you would if you were fresh, because (for that day) it may be too high of an intensity.
My only concern would be a total weekend load that is so large that it reduces your volume in the following week. That’s a big no-no with ME training. You need to keep your global volume as high as when you start ME.
