Tamara's Holiday Training Tips

posted on Tuesday, 18th June 2013 | find under Tamara, Nutrition
1. Swap the suit for a wetsuit
Cornwall is one of our favourite places to go on holiday. I used to worry about the weather and what we would do if it rained the whole time, but now that the kids are older we just go surfing. Having grown up in hot countries, I only discovered the necessity of wetsuits in my adult life, and they are brilliant. Cold rainy weather? Who cares. Jump in the sea in your wetsuit. Problem solved.
 
I may not be the best at surfing, but I love it. It's a tough upper body workout, especially in the Cornish waves, and catching a wave and standing up is exhilarating. The best part is that the whole family loves it too. 
 

 
2. Take the dog on a run
We often don’t have enough time for me to go for a run and walk the dog later, so I try to combine the two. She's only got little legs, but is happy enough to run 5k as long as I give her treats along the way.
 
3. Barefoot is best
I always take a pair of trainers whenever I go on holiday.
