Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

Drop the speed day and add 1 or two easy miles. At the speed you are currently at, the extra couple of miles will benefit you more in the long run.
Was it all a dream?
I'm in the business of misery...
I would suggest rearranging your week so that you have an easy day (or cross training day) in between your speed work and medium long days. What do you do for speed work? I would suggest a tempo run rather than intervals since you are preparing for a half.
