Summer Travels on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Provincetown

July 11, 2011 · 1 comment

July has been one of the best and busiest months I have had in a long time!  Good weather, friends, family and will power!  Yes, will power.  I’ve managed to stick with my training plan for the most part even though I’ve been traveling a ton.  I just finished posting at CrushingTheCourse.com and wanted to share with you my top tips for vacation workouts.  Read the entire article by clicking the link above.

While it may not be convenient or logistically possible to continue your regular training program while on vacation there are ways to maintain. Here are my top tips for sticking to a training schedule while on Vacation:

  • Plan in advance what days you plan to do what exact workout and at what time.  Set an appointment with an agenda.
  • If early morning workouts are scheduled, lay out your clothes, sneakers, heart rate monitor and wake up snack the night before.
  • Get a little lost during your long cardio days.  This is a favorite of mine.  I love to explore new trails and often find I can run much longer than I though I could or planned.
  • Look online for training facilities near by.  Many vacation destinations welcome visitors, offering daily, weekly and monthly passes.  Expect it to cost you at least $20, but if you call ahead you may be able to get a deal.
  • Check out the sites like Groupon and Buy With Me in the city of your vacation a few weeks leading up to it for deals on fitness facilities and classes.
  • Bring your special foods for training!  I brought with me a few G Series FIT prime bars and smoothies.  I’d have one bar before my early workouts and the smoothie when I got back for breakfast with some additional fruit.
Also on vacation, I was very lucky to taste some very delicious meals!  In Martha’s Vineyard, I discovered Edgartown to be my favorite spot to dine and shop!  Even though it may be pricier and preppier than the rest of the island, this was my type of place.  Roomie and I dined on Crab and Mango Guacamole at The Atlantic.It was simply amazing.  Even the chips were delicious.  My mouth caught on fire quickly when I decided to mix in the seeds from the pepper on top.  Not smart Sarah, not smart at all.
We also tried the Watermelon, Feta and Balsamic salad that I loved as well.  Watermelon and feta seem to be the new hot couple at many restaurants these days.  Odd but yummy if you have not tried it!
The house we stayed at on the Vineyard was adorable and was in West Tisbury.  If you ever stay in MV, it would be wise to have a car.  It is not the type of place to be without one, especially West Tisbury.  It was a perfect little house and will now host the memory of my sisters engagement.
