Working out while traveling can be a dreadful proposition. We often think of travel as fun and light and a “break” from your real life, and can sometimes see that as an excuse to get lazy!

Well, that’s not necessarily true if your “real” life is about to involve full-time travel! A few days ago, I mentioned I was going to start trying to do “Diary” posts every once in a while where I discuss my workout for the day, and maybe a few other facts. Well, I haven’t left Orlando yet, but I’m realizing I’m going to love working out on the road! I was dreading it for a time, and wondering how I would keep up with it, but now, I’m stoked. Wanna know why? PLAYGROUNDS!

Here, a note: I haven’t really spent any significant amount of time on a playground since I was a kid. And even then, I was more of a “reader” and less of a “recess-er.” But the other day, I saw this ridiculous meme going around the internet of a girl doing burpees over a swing, and then another girl attempting the same feat, and failing. If you haven’t seen it, take a second to check it out, here.

Being the incredibly stereotypical millennial and #CrossFitBro I am, I had to meme. So, I went to a playground with a friend and tried it. Here are the results: Anjali’s Swing Burpees.

I was nervous, but thank god I didn’t faceplant! And I realized, I’m going to LOVE playgrounds as a tool for exercise!

So, that being said, here was my workout for the day:

4 miles at my easy pace (As mentioned before, I’m following Hanson’s Marathon Method!) of 9/mile

Followed by my WOD Genius wod:

Working Out While Traveling

I’ll admit, I had never really thought a playground could be just as fun and effective as a gym, but with the right tools (like my awesome WOD Genius app) and the right mindset, it can be a great way to stay fit on the road. This, I think, will be the beginning of my love affair with working out while traveling!
