    I recently moved to Chengdu and live downtown. Getting tired of the treadmill and want to get some miles in outside. I heard there is a track at nearby university, but hard to find details.

    Any good advice? Or anyone want to join for some regular runs?

    Make sure you check Chengdu's AQI before going out for a run:

    Some days are more polluted than others, especially after it rains.

    I used to be a regular outdoor runner in America, but noticed I can't keep up the same pace when running outdoors in China. My chest begins to feel heavy and I just start to feel like crap after two weeks.

    You can enter a university and look at the campus map posted by the entrance. It should tell you where the track field is. I prefer finding a small park and jogging there. The scenery is nice, the trees provide a cool area, the air is fresher, and it's peaceful.
