A tired run

I ran for 2.3 miles but was pretty tired. My pace during the run was 11 to 11:30.

I think there are several possible reasons for my being tired. I'm still in the recovery from my half-marathon. I'm running significantly faster than I did in my training runs before the half. I ran late Saturday evening instead of Saturday morning, so my usual two-day rest over the weekend was significantly reduced. I've only had about 6 1/2 hours sleep the past couple of days. My body did well last week with the faster pace, so a minor slump this week isn't unusual. Rather than push myself to do more distance, I aborted and came home so I'll be in better shape for tomorrow.
