What you are proposing is fine, but you may want to compensate by heating your first runnings immediatly, thereby "mashing out" in the kettle ....sort of???

The extended time is not that big a deal...mashing times are not that 60 minutes drain your first batch sparge and add hot sparge water to end the whats that ... 65 min mash. RDWHAHB
