This is an aerial view of the Botanic Garden in Wellington. It’s about two minutes run from my office but I haven’t really explored it lately. Years ago I used to run there a bit but recent training has meant I’ve concentrated on running flat over measurable distances.
Yesterday I went round the gardens with a guy from work and was reminded what a great place it is for aimless and unstructured running. Lots of it’s hilly and on well-maintained tracks and trails, and you can criss-cross back and forth for a session of any length.
I was there again today getting slightly lost. Good stuff.
