"Normal" (but increasingly rare) Tuesday morning 8K. Often skip hikes the
week before GAR but it was supposed to be just a walk-through. No one was
expecting the trail to be that bad, but I was careful not to overdo and
injure myself (thumbs don't count).

Normal (rarely otherwise) Friday 5K.

Skipped Sunday's 13K entirely. Normal would just be skipping part of it.

Haven't posted in quite a while..

Was off running for a few months from August through November.
Started getting back mid-November and am now up to
usually 4 weekly runs with a longest run around 20km and
weekly totals from 45-50km (30 miles).  Doing 1-2
stationary bike sessions/week as cross training.

Ran a small 1/2 marathon this past Friday in Tel-Aviv which
was my first race in almost a year.  Managed a 1:37:41 on a flat
course with some strong winds in the middle section.  Paced
it OK as I ran about a 1 minute negative split and moved from
66th at the 12.2km turnaround to finish 45th of about 300
finishers.  That was about my 15th "career" 1/2 Marathon
and the result is a PW...Coming up in 2 weeks is the Jerusalem
marathon where I'm also planning to run the 1/2.  Will be hard
pressed to match this time as it's a hilly course.

Anthony.  Efrat,  Israel.

Good to hear from you, Anthony. Nice to get back on the race scene. Good
luck in Jerusalem HM.

    Couple of 2hr trailruns, but also a couple sessions on a nordictrack
elliptical machine, one 1/2hr & one 1hr on the builtin 'competition'
setting, both of which left me soaked in sweat.  No way to compare results
without an 'ifit' module, but it does have speed workout settings which I'll
be trying.  Not nearly as unpleasant as I'd expected, and without the
pounding of actual running to worry about I felt I was getting more of a
cardio workout than I usually get in trailrunning, where I avoid going fast.

Monday: 8.15 mi. GAR. Second of 45, M75-79 (3,298 of 18,225 overall),
in 1:21:11, almost four min. slower than last year and missed PR by 25
minutes. Started *way* too far back (9:59 to start mat) and dodged
around deliberate walkers for a couple of miles, then around taking-
a-break walkers the rest of the way. Would have been slow anyway.

Tuesday: Skipped usual 8K.

Wednesday: Skipped usual hike.

Friday: Had to push myself onto the dark wet roads, but managed to get my
usual 5k in between downpours. I still wear my ancient dilapidated Nike
Frees for this short weekly run only; don't want to be far from home when
they fall apart completely. But they are my most comfortable shoes ever.

Sunday: With Hapalua Half in the near future, thought I should up my "long"
run a bit (even though I hadn't managed the "usual" 13K in weeks). Much
relieved to see stars in gaps between the clouds when I got outside, but
the (what we in Hawaii call "cold") wind made me wonder if I shouldn't have
worn a tank top or maybe even a T-shirt. Turns out that what I added to the
loop only gave me 1K more (to 14.5K) than usual, but I ran it all except
the 2nd block of Kilauea Ave. hill. And I knew it had been enough when I
climbed the stairs back to my 5th floor apartment.

32+K for week, 6 more than my standard. Maybe I can add a couple
more next Sunday.

No, if it really is a separate thread, then *I* apologize. My guess was that
anything with "Subject: Re: Training week ending Feb 24 2013" would be treated
as the same thread, even if it did get ahead of the one without the "Re."
But turning on "Thread view" shows I was wrong about that. I should have
just waited a few minutes...
