Georgia O Fest Middle, F21
Look at me, running F21! This was a good day. The weather was great, the orienteering was fun, and I felt pretty good. I was a little shaky on a few controls and clearly didn't have any zip (Melissa: "well you don't have any nutrients in your body so....") but it was a manageable outing. And I got to go orienteering which means it was actually more like a great day.

Opened the door to go out for my run this morning and tnipen was right outside! That makes six in a row.
Thomas and I ran along the Boston side of the river and then up to Charles St and through the public garden towards his hotel. He was kind enough to join me in my 6x40" with walking recoveries. We parted ways in the garden and I did my 1 mile tempo+ on the way back home.
Probably just about did 200m for the first 5, last one a little slower. I don't think there's too much of a need to run 200s faster than low 40s right now. Mile was a 7:37, which certainly felt like a bit harder than tempo.
It feels pretty okay to run and do a workout (especially with nice company like today) but generally the next day is not so good. So we'll see what happens tomorrow.

Winter is back, I had snow/sleet in my face for most of this run. Just an easy trot around MIT, grabbing a few nodes and then stopping at the pool on my way back to pick up our membership cards. While leaving there I bumped into former Tot Lot parent Monica, extending my bumping-into-people-while-running streak to 5.

Ran a mostly-Reservoir Loop at the Fells. Not sure whether the clockwise facing markings are better or what but I had an easier time following them this time, with only one major detour.
I felt really good for the first 12 or so minutes and was getting ready to start some steady state stuff when I was overcome with exhaustion. Guess I was a bit too excited about the 65F temps and went out way too hard for my current state. Changed my plan just to finish a loop and call it a good day.
Got back to the parking lot and bumped into three Walkers, two small ones and one medium one.
