# test data
x <- c(1:4, 6:8, 10:14)
z <- zoo(x, as.Date(x))

# idx is 1 for first run, 2 for second run, etc. idx <- cumsum(c(1, diff(z) != 1))

# starts replaces each time with the start time of that run # ends is similar but for ends
starts <- time(z)[match(idx, idx)]
ends <- time(z)[cumsum(table(idx))[idx]]

# average over each run using the time of the end of run for the result # replace ends with starts if that is preferred aggregate(z, ends, mean)
