Twilight orienteering at Mt Painter, a rare first run on an inner-city ACT map. I did the training course - the orange 1 on a modified map. This one was part contour-only and part 'biscuit hunting' with a circle of map around the control cut out. Started pretty carefully as it's rocky underfoot and the grass is super long at the moment, and my achilles is still shitty. It didn't stop being shitty the whole run but I did start to feel more comfortable running, if that makes sense? Maybe I just started to care less about it. Nav was fine except for the long contouring leg #5, when I got a bit spooked and dropped off my line just before the control. But there were a few other problems: #6 was in the wrong place and then the SI unit fell off the control at #8 and I had to tie it back on again ... Also controls hidden behind little boulders on a contour-only map feels a bit bingo-ish but it did force me to concentrate on my contour reading. Pretty good fun all up. Enjoyed running with Ecmo from #5.
