They'll help with a quick Brexit!
How's the training going?

Love the Brexit gag - Nice  :)
Me and Jules have recently started the Hal Higdon training programme, Jules training for the Bristol half in September and for me; Bristol half in September and York full in October. Early days but its going well.

Looks like you have it under control, good luck to you both. I'll stick to my long, slow runs!  :)

This is a solid schedule.  Personally, two days rest, which I assume means no running, prior to the HM is unnecessary and may actually make you feel a bit heavy or 'off'.  I might suggest just heading out for a 2 mile run the day before just to shake out the legs.  This is somewhat a personal preference, but the body can occasionally respond negatively to multiple rest days in a row when you haven't taken more than a day off per week in the prior months.

^point taken @BloodnThunder. I will employ the 2m "shake out" run on the day before the HM

Definitely can do no harm.  You will be in pretty good shape by the time of the HM so a 2 mile easy run is not going to cause you to be any less fresh on the day of the race.
