1. The Early Bird Catches the Worm (and Burns More Calories)
Wake up early to start your day the right way and go for a run or swim. I always run while on vacation because it is a great way to explore and see the sights. When I vacation close to a beach or on a resort that is where I run, and it feels great to challenge myself and explore a new area. If you run early you will not disturb the friends or family you are on vacation with – or better yet, why not recruit them to join you? Why lose the hard work you put in to prepare for vacation while you are away? Rising early for a run tops my ways to stay fit on vacation for this reason.
