Help me build a fitness routine/ Vex my current one!

Since the New Years I have been consistently running 2-3 miles a day, six days a week, at about 5-5.5 mph pace on average (I'm short at 5'2" and my strides are small!). I can feel that my body is getting acclimated, so I'd like to throw in strength training and HIIT in there. I'd like to lose 10 pounds of fat. I'd also like to keep my gym time to 30-45 min if possible. Help me build a plan?

Some additional info:
i'm a small woman, but I naturally get muscular very easily so I am not looking for a ton of weight lifting. Just a little bit to push my body and get toned. I also do about 10-15 min yoga every morning but that's mostly just for stretching. I do really, really like running...and would like to run a 5k before October. Right now I throw in a few sprints in my daily run, but would also like to at some point do some longer runs too.
Based on a lot of confusing stuff I read I guess-timated this plan below. Tell me if I'm totally off track! Give me suggestions! What are some actually useful websites that are not just trying to sell me things?
Day 1: HIIT on stationary bike 30 min, arms shoulders and back 15 min
Day 2: easy run 2 miles, core 15 min
Day 3: normal run 3 miles
Day 4-6 repeat
Day 7 rest.
What do you think? Anything else i should throw in there?
