Jerusalem Half

I just came back from a 13+ km barefoot run. This was my first run in two weeks. I had a light bout of bronchitis that didn't allow me to run for some time. It is difficult to run when you can breathe in... Then, the weather was bad.

But now I am back. I registered for the Jerusalem Half Marathon, which means I have to train intensely for the next two weeks.

I ran the route out RBS, via route 10, up the 3775. When I hit about 6.5km I turned around and ran back.

I was feeling good out there, so I started to think, at around 5km, that maybe I should just continue and do the whole Lamed Hey loop which totals to my house about 18.5km. As I kept runnign I decided to not do it - even though I was feelign good at 5 and 6 km, when I would hit 15km and still had 4 km uphill to go I might just crash. And then I might be so sore I wouldn't be able to run for the next 4 or 5 days. So I stuck to the plan and decided to turn around and keep the run to about 13km.
