This of course means no long run for me tomorrow. And probably no long run until I get back actually, unless I can find a route with some shade, because it'll be hotter and more humid there than it already is here.
While on vacation, however, I always try to stick to workouts. I rarely am able to do weights - most condo gyms or hotels don't have weights - but a week off from weights will actually do me good. It's been probably a year since I've taken a rest week.
Since I can't run every day unfortunately, I'll take some low-impact boxing & kickboxing DVDs, and I've already written out some beach HIIT workouts to try. You know, for fun ;-) I also bring along resistance bands and weighted gloves.
For Fun Facts Friday, I thought I'd list out a few things I'll miss about my long runs, my usual workout routine, but also what I'm looking forward to.
I will miss...
- Taking my GU during my long run. I rather look forward to that point during the run.
- Running through the wooded area I'm so used to.
- Having the option of doing a weight workout.
I will enjoy...
- A break from weights.
- Running along the beach.
- Running new routes.
- Trying out new HIIT workouts.
Do you make it a point to workout on vacation or do you use it as a break? Do you take any special equipment or DVDs with you?
I'll admit that I checked out gyms in the area (just in case). I've never actually used a gym on vacations though. But I always look.
