Patience was rewarded and I am today having the day of exercise I had hoped to have yesterday. It is 53F in NYC with very little wind! Not quite as beautiful as yesterday, but still pretty much ideal running weather. Best long one I've had in a while; right glute-hamstring was virtually silent for first fifty minutes or so, then I could feel it on the way back and it was rather sore by the end of the run, but not as bad as it was on that long one a few weeks ago. Should be able to go to masters swim later barring unforeseen calamity.
