Historic Half Marathon training plan

So, I have set up a tentative training plan for the remaining 7 weeks until the Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon on May 17.  Here it is!  Again, this is based off the training principles of Run Less, Run Faster by Pierce, Murr, and Moss (2012).

Workout #1 is always a track workout.  Workout #2 is always a tempo workout, with a 1mi easy before and after.  Workout #3 is a long run.

Week 1:  already posted.

Week 2:
#1  6 x 800m (90 second RI)
#2  1mi easy, 3mi short tempo, 1mi easy
#3  10mi easy

Week 3:
#1  3 x 1600m (60 sec RI)
#2  1mi easy, 6mi long tempo, 1mi easy
#3  11mi Half Marathon Pace (HMP) + 20 seconds

Week 4:
#1  6 x 800m (90 sec RI)
#2  1mi easy, 2mi medium tempo, 1mi easy, 2mi medium tempo, 1 mi easy
#3  8mi HMP + 20 sec

Week 5:
#1  4 x 1200m (2 min RI)
#2  1mi easy, 5mi medium tempo, 1mi easy
#3  13mi HMP + 30 sec

Week 6:
#1  5 x 1000m (400m RI)
#2  2mi easy, 3mi short tempo, 1mi easy
#3  8mi HMP + 20 sec

Week 7:
#1  6 x 400m (400m RI)
#2  3mi easy
#3  Historic Half Marathon!

Again, this is a tentative plan and subject to change based on childcare availability, the sleep allowances per Baby Thunder, and my health.
