The ‘Plan B’ Workout

I thought many readers could relate to the common dilemma of having to miss a workout due to the latest “crisis du ‘jour” in our busy lives.

You name it – sick child, unexpected project at work and on and on. There are so many things that can come up to divert attention from training. For example, I will be traveling for a day this week for work. By looking ahead, you can adjust your workout routine for the week by doing activities in the facilities the hotel may have available in a fitness center or simply make that travel day a “rest day” in your schedule.

Nicole Nichols comes to the rescue here with some other great ideas to assist in your “Plan B” approach to staying fit at http://www.sparkpeople.com/. Check it out here -- http://tinyurl.com/6purpu.

It’s amazing how a little creativity can help us maintain health and fitness in our busy lives!

Great advice. I stayed at a hotel in San Francisco that had a fitness center but it was closed for repairs (what?) when I stayed there...so I just walked up and down the three flights of steps for 30 minutes!

Great suggestions - training while traveling can be hard - but you end up feeling so much better when you can accomplish it!
