Today's run was somewhere around 7.5 - 8 miles - I didn't measure the last bit accurately because I spent some time jogging around the rotunda at the Palace of Fine Arts, admiring the architecture and the beautiful swans. Between fatigue from the workout (I'm still not getting all of my weekday runs in, which is where I should be building up speed) and slowness dodging tourists and waiting to cross streets, the run took me 2 hours 11 minutes.
I'm really worried that I may have to drop out of the half marathon in October if I don't pick up speed really soon. I was afraid this would happen when I started running again; I got caught up in the excitement at the San Francisco Marathon 5K and thought that it would be good to enter and train for a longer race. Apparently I didn't learn my lesson from my last half marathon in the year 2000, where I could barely walk the next day. Today I've spent the afternoon lying on the couch watching TV, an actually pretty rare occurrence for me nowadays. But I barely have the energy to move.
