Know Your Resources

In new locations, it can be difficult to find safe, affordable places to train. If the people you are visiting don’t have ideas for you, ask your hotel concierge for a map of trails or list of local gyms.

Technology can also be your friend. Garmin recently rolled out a “Heat Maps” feature, a color grid overlay which allows athletes to find the most popular workout routes in a city. Morrison uses an iPhone app called AroundMe to find gyms and lap pools within walking distance of her hotel, and Niblett e-mails local running clubs before traveling to a city for advice on the best training routes.
