Beginning Tuesday we are taking our first extended vacation in two years, a trip to London and Amsterdam that we have been planning since January. Yes, I did put in my PTO in January and saved most my days off for these next two weeks. In hindsight maybe not the best idea because I am insanely burnt out, but I will just appreciate it more, right? Right.
Any way, one of my favorite things to do when exploring new cities is to run. However, the weather like it always does is calling for rain in London, and I don’t think I will be able to convince Josh to lace up for a wet, cold run around the Thames. So what else can we do?
Thankfully, Josh has really caught the fitness bug and last week started messaging me all sorts of gyms and fitness activities that are around our Shoreditch-based hotel.
Boom Cycle has caught our eye, and there is a good possibility that we will find ourselves at the studio before we go traipsing around London.
Then there is Frame, which has an interesting mix of classes to choose from, including a class called Vibe where you do exercises for a minute each on a vibrating platform. I have no idea what that means, but I want to try it so badly.
Of course, we will also be climbing the stairs at the Anne Frank House, and if weather permits riding bikes around the city in Amsterdam.
And our fall back….our handy dandy travel yoga mats from lulu will be in our suitcases with yoga downloaded onto my iPad.
