Run geogrid while WRF is already running

Hello all,
I am currently running WRF-Chem 3.2.1 and the runs are taking a few days to finish due mainly to the small time step and lack of better computational power at the moment. I started a run yesterday and it should take a few days to finish.

Meanwhile, I wanted to make some changes in the namelist.WPS, run geogrid and check them in the geo_em files with ncview (I am making some changes in the LU files). Would that somehow interfere with my current run taking place? I mean, I want this run to continue with my original LU files, only after it is complete (which should be in a few days) I would run with the different land use. Can I do that, or do I have to wait until it is done - does the model use the geo_em file during the run?

Thanks you for your time,
