The Holiday Season can be stressful enough as it is without having to worry about how and when you will be able to get your runs in. After spending the last few weekends traveling, I’ve learned a few things about staying on track while traveling. Let me tell you how to take the worry out of keeping up your running through holiday travel.
Tips To Keep Running Through Holiday Travel
Find a local race
Small towns, big cities almost everyone has a turkey trot or holiday race. Jumping into a small local race is a low stress way to get your miles in.
Join a local running group
Google your town’s local running group and make some new friends.
I learned that most of the big hotels have running and walking routes available. Many publish them on their websites so you can have access to them even if you are not staying at the hotel.
A quick Google search of “my city” Running routes will give you great ideas for popular running routes while visiting family or traveling during the holidays.
City Running Tours
City Running Tours offers group and private running excursions in big cities all over the country. Find the complete list here. I absolutely loved my tour in San Francisco and in Vancouver and look forward to joining in another city in the future.
When all else fails..
If none of my above tips are feasible for you, do something new. When traveling, I enjoy trying out new fitness classes. I’ve learned that most studios will give you a trial class for free -win win! Many gyms will also offer free day or weekly passes if the treadmill is your only option.
