From your profile, congrats on all the accomplishments you've had so far! Looks like you've completely transformed your life with running. Very impressive!
Looking at your log, it looks like your long run is waaaaaaaaay too much of your weekly total milage. A lot of people will tell you to keep your long run somewhere between 1/3 - 1/2 of your weekly miles, leaning more towards 1/3 for an average. This is because the long run really stresses the body and you need a strong milage base to support it. My understanding is that if you keep up the pattern you're doing with your super long run once/week and a few comparatively really short runs in between then you're very likely to get injured.
First thing I see is two quality days back to back - Tuesday and Wednesday. I don't know of many plans that would suggest this...
