Courage ! Do one brave thing today...then run like hell.
Cheffy great to see you're doing so well. You want to get your mileage up to at least 26 miles per week for several weeks before the half. Adding a 5th day would be an excellent way to do that. I would suggest after a few weeks of that you start adding distance to a mid week run, about 1/2 mile every other week until you get it up to 8 miles. Also slowly lengthen your long run every other week. If you can get your mileage up to 32 for a couple weeks with a long run of 13 you'll cruise through that half marathon. Long runs of 12 and weekly totals of 26 will get you to the finishline but it may be a tough day. The most important things are that you stay injury free and taper for 10 days so you get to the start fresh.
