I began an amateur jogging career a while ago. It means that over past few years I took my training sessions less seriously. Now I’m on the serious slope. But something I never managed to do is a full training session in a stadium. I always enjoy running in the wild city more and eventually finish my session with two, three or more rounds at the stadium, this I can do.
Luckily there is a stadium, the Friedrich Ludwig Jahn Sportpark, 50m from my door, so whenever I haven’t had enough I can finish my jog by turning around with other joggers. But the image I like the most is when I’m just passing this spot: during the weekend or during a beautiful day, from the outside, the place looks like a giant round aquarium with fish trapped in it, all swimming in the same direction. Sometimes I’m one of the fish, even early in the morning.
This sport place is freely open to the public, except when the football team has a game, which happens only once in a while. If you can’t get in, the Mauerpark just behind it can easily be used as a replacement jogging spot.
