If You Go Away For the Weekend, Do You Work Out?

I always try to exercise if I'm going away on a week long vacation. I like to maintain my regular workout schedule if I can. Weekends away are a different story though. If I only go away for Saturday and Sunday, I don't always plan to work out because I tend to be really busy. How about you?

I will never ever skip a work out no matter where I am!

If I am staying at a hotel with a gym, I will try to get a workout in. If I am visiting family, I will try to get in a few long walks or something, but usually end up not getting much done, as my schedule is all thrown off.

Ha, my family makes fun of me when we go on vacation too. My husband and my parents and I went to Mexico last winter and I went running through the village every morning for an hour and everyone told me I was crazy.

If I go away for the weekend, I usually don't worry about fitting in exercise. But my family always used to make fun of me when we went on vacations..they'd sleep in, and I'd wake up at 6 every morning to run on the beach. I love it though!

It seems my weekends away always include sightseeing or something and a lot of walking. Considering my usual day is sitting at a desk all day then hitting the gym for an hour, an entire day of walking seems like a decent trade off.

I try my best to get something in. If I pick the hotel I try really hard to find one with an acceptable fitness room. If not, I at least try to go for a walk or do some stretching.

If I'm away I tend not to go to a gym, but I'm normally walking everywhere, which to me, counts as a workout.

OK, walking around the mall or theme park counts right? :cheer:

I usually try to get a workout in on one day during the weekend. I always take one day off, but on the other day during the weekend I try to get my workout in.

If I'm going away for a weekend or something I'm probably heading out to do something athletic anyways. Whether it's just being on my feet all day walking around or heading somewhere else I'll probably be getting something in - but it's always fun so it's not really work! Heading away to the lake house and kayaking, swimming, walking, and wakeboarding are great ways to get a workout by having fun!

Definitely, if I'm going to stay at a hotel with a gym or with family. My in-laws have the best treadmill! But if we're staying with friends, I'll happily do without the workouts.

My b/f and I are going away next weekend and I deliberately made sure the hotel has a gym so I can get a workout in. Whether I'll actually use it or not is another story..hehe..

I usually take Saturday and Sunday off anyway, but a weekend off is such a short time that I'd feel like I was wasting it taking time to work out.

I don't really go away for weekends but I would probably do some walking if I did.
