As I write this post, I’m packed and ready to go on a trip …… 24 hours in new york, then a two weeks tour through Peru/Bolivia. To say I’m excited is an understatement, I’ve been wanting to do this holiday for years, and can’t believe it is now happening for me. Trekking to see Machu Picchu is going to be a highlight, as well as seeing the real amazon rainforest.
So whilst, I’ll be having a fab time, what will happen to my workout regime? I’m hoping for an active holiday, with the Inca trail setting the tone, I’m happy with ny fitness levels for tackling it, let’s just hope I don’t get the dreaded altitude sickness.
Running has become an addiction, and I love running to sight-see, so I’ve packed running shoes and an outfit (and my trusty Garmin). Hoping to do a central park run on Sunday morning, which has always been on my to -do list. As any more opportunities come up, I’ll pop into my running gear and get a few miles in when I can.
On the strength training front, I’ve just finished (this morning) stage one of NROLFW, which suggests a break after stage 1. So I’m comfortable not doing too much, might try and fit in a few push up/sit ups/boat positions of an evening to keep the muscles going.
What do you guys do on holiday? Work out or take a rest?
