Once I've dropped JD off at his thrice-weekly basketball class, I cross over the road and do my own exercise.
LianHua Park has a roughly circular path around the central lake, signposted as being a convenient 500m long. So, ten steady laps means I can run 5km and still get back to catch the last half of JD's class. The route includes two small Chinese bridges, a gentle hill and a couple of little shops selling bottles of cold water, should I need to rehydrate. The only negative is having to dodge groups of Chinese folk dawdling along, oblivious to the elite athlete trying to dodge past them!

Good idea. Think I'll do the same in our park. Oh 'old on a minute. I'm 83 so not sure it would be a good idea, and Mum CERTAINLY could not join me !!!
