It was good to prepare yourself before you have to travel whether for business or vacation. With this trip coming up, I did not want to get into a situation where I put on 10 pounds from eating out every day and not being able run.
I requested a building with a workout room and when they first got back to me, they said the building did not have one and I would be eligible for 1 week free at a nearby health club. That was unacceptable to me. I did my own research and saw that the place I was staying does have a workout room. I was able to arrange access to the gym. While I am used to running outside, I am not that comfortable running in a place I am not familiar with. Maybe after being here a few days, I will try an outdoor run.
I also have a room with a full kitchen and cooking utensils. I spent the other day using google maps to find nearby grocery stores and other places to buy groceries. The google street view comes in handy to help see what the stores look like. I found a grocery store that was about .3 miles away. According to their website, they have everything I am looking for and will still be open after I arrive.
