Aunt Betty on a clear, cold late morning. Longest run since RtB. Ran steady, didn't feel great at first, but maintained well. Sciatic behaved--felt it, but not limited. Will definitely be on the left side of the carriage roads whenever possible.

Run w Ron. He took it easy on me for the first 3 miles but finished strong. Felt pretty good.

Row :20 plus stretching and exercises. Tried brace, it's supportive but I think I'll save it for the tennis court.

Run with Ron. Felt OK but lower right calf felt sore for the last mile, so will need to monitor. Happy with the run though.

Beautiful 45-degrees with sun, moderate breeze, nice rolling course with one substantial hill early in the 3rd mile. Wanted to run hard but not all-out, given a complete lack of speedwork or racing and hence no adaptation. Think I achieved that, with splits of 6:48, 7:06, 7:11 and :37, even 7:00 pace overall. OK with the positive split given the terrain.
