Treadmills in the Tropics

Dave here...

For several years Holly's marathon training cycles have overlapped with our vacations to all-inclusive resorts. This means alarms go off at 5:30AM so she can head over to the small gyms at these resorts before other people start to show up. This sort of activity seemed nuts to me.

Unfortunately I've had to join her this year. Now my half marathon training session conflicts with vacation. Luckily my distance requirements are shorter and I am not required to hit the gym as many times as she has to.

I've learned some new things from getting up early and exercising on vacation:

  • It's pretty this time of morning
  • The ocean is a a little cooler this early, but still pleasant
  • On your way back from the gym you can grab chocolate croissants from the buffet
  • Time on the treadmill can temporarily relieve your hangover - temporarily is the key word
It hasn't been the vacation-killer I thought it would be, but I don't see it happening for me on future trips either.
