“Self-training” in Hong Kong Park

As a kind of “self-training”, I designed an 81-point course for Hong Kong Park, resembling some kind of “control picking”. I tried it this morning and finished with 32’26”. Before that I ran for a while with the boys in my secondary school (Wah Yan HK). Everything is nearby my home so I can run directly from my home to Wah Yan, run with my boys and then back to Hong Kong Park to tackle this course, before returning home for a good bath and typing this post.

After point 16 I wrongly went to point 23 and reversed the course, only realizing this at point 17, and so I had to continue from that point on. Looks like a nice exercise for combating against fatigue.

Since half of the map info is cut off when I scanned it (the original paper map that I have is longer than an A4 sheet), I feel obliged to copy it here:
