As some of you may know, I’ve been on the road traveling for the past three weeks. Traveling is a real passion of mine. I think it was passed down from my grandma and then my mother as a child. The more I travel, the more I feel alive.
That said, traveling these past couple of months have been extra interesting since I’ve been training and working out so much while at home in Toronto. Traveling makes it a challenge to stay on top of your regular workout routine. Some people choose to stop working out altogether when they travel, but I’ve worked so hard these past couple of months, that that is just not an option for me anymore.
These past couple of weeks, I’ve been in places that are extremely hot so it hasn’t always been easy to work out outside. That said, I’ve found new creative ways to get workouts in, even if they differ from those at home, I know that every bit counts.
I’ve found motivation in the amazing locations I’ve been in. I’ve had the privilege of visiting some of the most beautiful spots in the United States ie. Antelope Canyon, Death Valley, Monument Valley, Horseshoe Bend, etc. I’ve used the beautiful natural scenery as an extra motivation to get out there and be active. Whether it’d be a surf session in Malibu, a hike in Runyon Canyon, an NTC session in Horseshoe Bend or a run along Fisherman’s Village in Marina Del Rey, all of these experiences have been unique and wonderful. Running has been especially fun, running all over Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, Nevada and California! How cool is that? I’ll be posting more about my travels in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
What keeps you motivated to work out while you’re on the road?
