From the carpark up the start with CD then back down the hill and back up again. Chilly enough waiting around.

CorkO jersey getting its first race outing today......

Legs were tired after the week but nav was pretty solid today. Poor line to #5 in the heather and didn’t climb enough. Splits show I lost 15sec to Niall. To 6 I just struggled to ploughing uphill into the wind through the heather and shipped another ~20sec to Niall. Maybe not the best route around to #7 but it was the one I thought I could execute the best, 15sec behind Neil who went straighter into the control after a similar first half of the leg. Tidy through the low loop and then fastest split uphill to 13. Bit of a banana route to #16 but apart from that clean to the finish.

Nice course planned by ColmM, tricky enough and definitely physically challenging.

Attackpoint says no estimated time lost. Didn't do anything today until I had a plan made even if it meant stopping for a few seconds.

Clean race, nice way to bounce back after the Netherlands before the JK next weekend and IOC in a few weeks.

Cool down loop and chat with Ruairi L and the one with Niallmac and ColmM when I saw the Donaghys werent all back yet. Agreed to jump in on a tempo loop with ColmM but fairly quickly I realised my legs were fairly spent so had to let him go.

Had to pop to Argos and Aldi and also wanted to get over the 100km for the week so went for an easy recovery loop from home with 2 stops to pick up stuff.

2nd fastest parkrun in Ireland yesterday (although I'm sure the National 10km today lead to lower numbers of fast runners)

Out to do some course marking. Shane is injured so was alone again this morning. Counts as volunteering though so I don't feel guilty about not signing up to volunteer.

Legs a bit wobbly from the physio yesterday but they started to feel more like they belonged to me as this went on which is good.

Waterstown parkrun - 16:29 (parkrun PB)

Not sure where that came from. Tough week with 3 races and travel.........maybe Dara Clifford has magical physio hands?

Started off at a brisk pace and just seemed to be able to keep rolling along pretty well. Previous best through the first 3km was 10:03 and today I was 9:46, so shifting a bit better. Could feel the pinch during the last km with the hill, trying to lap other runners and into the head-wind for the second time. Parkrun PB lowered from 16:51 -> 16:29, still a long way to go to that course record though! The progress has gone 17:07 - 17:03 - 16:51 - 16:29.

Solo slow cool down jog. Happy camper after posting a half decent time this morning. Sorted to get to the O race tomorrow too for some more middle distance nav practice, need as much practice as I can get!

Physio’clock. Over to DC Fitness Physio for some recovery/maintenance work. Nice run along the banks of the canal. Tired this "morning", unsurprisingly.

Home mostly the same route along the canal. Some quirky characters out and about. Got a good rub down to hopefully shift the last few days in the lead up to the 4 races next weekend at JK 2019

Small warm up area so not to break the embargo. Got some video footage of the mass start (*will add later this evening*). Saw everyone go to the same first control......this lead to me going to the wrong first control since it seems most of them did too....

Mixed nations relay. I was with Davy and Marin. Marin took first leg but had to pack it in due to injury so we were DNF’d.

The concept was good! Runner 1 (R1) ran Leg 1 and then passed the map to runner 2 (R2) and took the leg 2 map. So R1 (map 2) and R1 (map 1) started together. Then R1 passes map 2 to R2 who passes map 1 to R3 and R1 takes map 3. Etc until all the legs have been passed through the team and all the runners have run each leg in order.

I messed up #1 in a big way after losing focus when we were DQ’d so early and not thinking first leg runners wouldve gone to the wrong control. I just ran with no plan, I wasn’t the only one. Hopefully that’s my brain malfunction out of the way before next weekend. Took a few sub-optimal routechoices including to #5 on course 3 aswell, shouldve gone straighter to avoid the green. Lonely out there not being involved in the racing and not seeing many others.

Token cool down before heading for grub and the "closing ceremony". Stored the bags in the airport storage and went into Amsterdam for a few hours with Colm to pass time before the flight home. Got some pizza and saw a cool clock in the Nemo Museum!

5th last starter this morning. They decided to do a reverse start for today with seedings. Hope I don't get caught and that I can do some catching! Terrain looks a bit different to yesterday.

Better day today but a lower placing. Much cleaner but maybe used the tracks too much and didnt back myself to go straight. Only time lost to 5 and 6, maybe 50-60sec in total. Caught a French guy at 10 who stuck on my back to 16/17 and then I got away. Had a 2:53 lead over 6th place from yesterday, he had a stormer and gained back 2:42 of those... just about held on! Colm had another solid race to cement 3rd and ensure he got to put on the podium pants to get his bronze medal. Hopefully his 3rd and my 5th might help get more teams to these and World Military Games in the future!

4 recovery laps of the barracks. Then dinner and presentation evening with all the other nations. Got our teams for the Sprint Relay tomorrow morning. I’m with Davy (Netherlands) and Marin (Slovenia) for what promises to be a morning of chaos, a sprint relay with a twist!

Nice win by Spurs, was able to watch it on the wifi in the rooms.

Mixed day. Some good parts, some not so good parts. Defence Forces Ireland ended up with 2 in the Top5 (Colm 3rd, Me 5th)

Errors in the early #2 where I had a crisis of confidence (~25sec), #3 ~45sec, #5 ~90sec since I just didn’t climb enough, #6 came out west of the control and then slow through the broken ground to find the right pit (2 on the map, loads on the ground!), #18 ~2mins in a major brain meltdown where I had to bail and come back in again.

Speed in terrain was good, ran 900m more than Colm though, that’s the time gap between us and some! Accuracy left me down.

Spent the morning getting to Harskamp in the Netherlands. Got our ID's and training maps and then straight back in the van to go to Stroese Zand. The terrain is crazy, really flat and sandy but with some areas of vegetation than can be pretty tough to get to. Terrain is a bit like Culbin/Roseile in Scotland or like Figuera da Foz from POM 2010. But those big sandy areas are heavy going to get through!
