Today’s topic is: Vacation spots — how do you get your workout in on vacation?
For me, vacation is each weekend in Bolton Landing, NY where we keep our boat.
Here are FIVE WAYS TO STAY ACTIVE AS A BOATER:
- Go for a hike.
There are quite a few nearby places to hike. And they are easy hikes. I am not an expert hiker and have no problems. I can go out early and still get back in time to go out on our boat.
If you are in the area, check out the Lake George Conservancy for hiking guides and maps.
2. Take a walk/hike on a trail (accessible from the boat):
There are several dock sites (Black Mountain Pt, Commission Pt, Red Rock Is, etc.) that have nearby trails and even one bay (Shelving Rock) where you can get to a trail/waterfall.
3. Run/Walk in town.
Our marina is near the Sagamore Hotel which has great grounds to run on including a nature trail.
4. Run/Walk on the main road.
The main road (9N) is the same one that the Adirondack Distance Run and Lake George Half Marathon uses. It has rolling hills and a view of the lake on one side.
This is the most obvious one. We hang often in the bays where the water is calm. There are also cliffs that you can dive off of, as well. (As for me, you’ll see me floating around with a drink in my hand LOL)
Happy Running! How you do work out while on vacation?
