Run 20:00 [3] 3.4 km (5:53 / km)

The first 15 minutes of this were a case of slow and sluggish, but at least the calf is only at minor nuisance level. I was just about thinking that I might be through the worst of it when it started to flare up again (much as it had at a similar stage in Geneva). Not wanting to run it into the ground, I pulled up pretty quickly.

Had a physio session tonight - she doesn't seem too alarmed beyond overall tightness. Some fairly serious needlework which will hopefully do some good (even if it makes walking this evening a bit of a struggle).

This season's fires so far seem to have been pretty good at missing existing orienteering maps. The Black Range one east of Canberra has done so too so far (although I suspect it will eventually get onto the Little Bombay map, which I don't think has been used for 15 years or more?), but it does cover an area I've rogained on a couple of times. There's supposedly some good granite on the Black Range itself (I seem to recall Rob Walter, whose home turf this sort of is, has been up there) but with no proper track access it's not really usable. (I was also wondering how many Black Ranges there are in Australia: the Geoscience Australia placename search turns up 19 though misses the Canberra one, and picks up two in the southeast of South Australia which are possibly stretching the definition of "range").

Update: looking at the latest RFS maps, "eventually" turned out to be "within an hour of my posting that".
