Speed Workouts

I just finished my first half marathon and I have another one in January.  Between now and then I would like to add speed work into my training.  I have looked online but I am finding the language and mileage and pacing etc all very confusing.  Can anyone recommend some easy track workouts I could try?

    Jog for a mile (4 laps) to warm up at a comfortable, easy pace. Then run a lap at a fast/out of comfort zone pace followed by a lap of easy jogging recovery. Repeat 3 times. Then cool down with 2 easy laps.
