Honestly, GVT was developed to help weight lifters move up a class in 12 weeks. It was developed as a 2-3 month solution, in which a trainee ate and ate and ate.

I personally don't know of anyone that survived longer than 8 to 12 weeks on it.

In my opinion it's far too physically demanding to be run longer than 3 months, for the most part. It's a specialization program more than a long-term grind it out program.

You can certainly try to run it longer than 12 weeks.

My advice is just dive in and see how you feel after 6-8 weeks. At this point you may need a mental break. If not, drive on.
