Plan (And Adjust As Needed)
Felipe Wells, Global Program Director for Allegis Group Servies, estimates his career requires him to be on the road 80 to 85 percent of the year. Some of his trips are only days in length, while others last five or six weeks. Proper planning, he says, allows him to maintain his training schedule for Ironman Lake Tahoe.
“There is no way to wing it on the road. You have to look ahead for the entire length of your trip and put your workouts into your calendar, especially if you’re dealing with extended travel.”
However, plans change, warns Wells. He has experienced this firsthand on multiple occasions, noting that he has had “bad streaks” where an entire week of workouts were missed.
“Just like any meetings, you might have to reschedule some of your training sessions or even miss them. Don’t stress, just focus and move on to the next one.”
