I'm looking for some input for those of who have an active lifestyle, watch what you eat, try to stay in shape, but also aim to enjoy your time on vacation, as well.
I'm a 30 year old male in decent shape (6', 177 lbs). I enjoy running (and have been at it for years - 5ks, 10k, and half-marathons - and continue to run at least three days a week), and the usual home workout programs (like P90X, Insanity, etc.). I've been active with all of the above for the last seven years or so and all's worked well.
I'm married, father of two, am a software developer by day (so I have a relatively sedentary day job), and I know that I can obviously continue exercises like running, push-ups, an so on when I'm out, but I don't have the equipment let alone time to do the usual programs like I do when I'm at home.
My Main Question(s)
As I've said, I've had a lot of success with all of the above, but questions that I've often had are:
- What are some of the best things to do whenever I'm on vacation?
- What's a good amount of time to allot for said workouts (or should I focus on keeping my heart rate elevated for a period of time)?
- Should I worry too much about skipping days, etc.?
- Any other general tips you guys and girls have?
Though I'm not necessarily concerned with losing a lot of progress over, say, the course of a week, I am looking for some suggestions for a regime of sorts of some of the best things that I can do whenever I'm traveling, on vacations, etc., to keep up with the progress I make at home.
I just don't want to be set back that much and the older I get, the easier it seems to become :).
There are a lot of apps available like (like Freeletics) though I've never tried them whenever I'm traveling, but I'm open to things like that, as well so suggestions welcome!
