Nice and gentle, tekkers actually didn't suffer because of the slow pace and felt on it which was good. Last session in these terrains, onto Evora tomorrow.

#11 - Sprint @ Marvao.
Another very cool hilltop castle village job. Had better flow on this one, was quite tricky and I'm obvs a bit tired so struggled to get into full flight but still a decent effort. Took the big W over davroski, aka Mr Biscuit.

Started in no-mans land since starting order was done from Tuesdays nightO. Stayed alone most the way except for a brief section with Karl. I thought I was pushing hard but HR never really got up, el spudingtonios are tired clearly. Pleased with how technically good i was though, just need to learn to push harder! Easy weekend coming up so that should sort me out, then onto next week!

Wisdom tooth has been pretty painful for a few days, had had enough today so found a lovely Portugese dentist who had a look and prescibed me some of those sweet sweet antibiotics. Will be on those for 8 days, hopefully won't have any troubles with them and training but we shall see.

At a cruisy easy pace, felt fine running wise, nav was good but struggled in the circle at times. Very much looking forward to tomorrows chasing start night race, gonna just try and stay clean and see what happens.

Head to head with Anton, basically 1 control then into some butterfly looping. My nav was not ideal, just never really got ahead of myself planning wise so was always trying to catch up. Came out the butterfly maybe 10s behind anton, then stayed this way to the finish. Defo need more practise on these hilly sprints!

Grr not good enough. Started well, made sure to fight hard to hang onto the Olli train, hit the first few nicely, then took a good line to 4 and got a 50m lead, noice. Held this together till 5, then Olli and co caught up to 6. Had a longer gaffle at 6, so was psuhing hard to get back on to 7 with Aikka. Just about on the back to 8, but took a bad line into the control and lost the pack, at this point this elastic snapped and I plodded in with a decent sized mistake at 10 as well. So got about 2/3rds right, won't be satisfied till i finish in the pack at these, we try again in a few days.
