Travel Exercise

Yesterday morning, I woke up after a night of not enough sleep and too many dreams of driving across the Nevada desert. I cringed at the thought of running on the hotel treadmill. Despite the clean room and state-of-the-art equipment, I didn’t want to be trapped exercising around other people.

For a moment, I considered blowing off my workout.

It’s always a temptation when I’m out of town. Even if I’m on a trip because of work, I get a vacation mentality and the urge to skip my workouts is strong.

Travel ExerciseInstead of shirking my exercise routine, I put on my running shoes and ran outside around the street by my hotel. I had to go around the block three times to finish my workout, but I got my mileage in. I was able to escape the hotel exercise room and get out into the sunshine and fresh air before spending another day trapped in a car.

Next time you’re tempted to skip your workout, remember me running around Professional Circle outside my hotel in a strange city. If I can get my butt out the door, so can you.
