walking round training areas will be a great opportunity to do a different sort of preparation - check the mapping style, what is shown and not, how are features mapped, runnability, underfoot conditions -stony, basically take the chance to do orienteering at a very slow pace.
Remember that to learn a new skill well you should do it slowly at the start and gradually build up to full pace - in orienteering we are generally very bad at this, we just launch full pace into new terrain, new maps etc and then wonder why we screw up big time... This is your big chance to do it properly :-)

Yeah I guess it will be just back to basics in terms of speed - I think I’ll be able to gain a lot from walking round the terrain

I am sure you can get more than most of the others who run round like headless chickens desperately trying to keep at full pace while picking up nothing...
and wondering why they get lost...
