The Travel Buddy

I may or may not be typing this post from my huge white fluffy bed inside a pretty-much-magical castle nestled in the velvety green rolling hills of Scotland while munching on the last few crumbs of yesterday's vegan berry crumble pastry... 

BUUUUUT, in my defense, I did wake up at 6:30 AM to beat everyone else downstairs so that I could squeeze in this 20-minute workout. Justified? Duh. If you're a little confused, let me explain. I'm traveling through England with my family! We've strolled through London, Tunbridge, Sheffield, and alllllllll the way over to Scotland, which brings me here. The past week-and-a-half have been packed with walking through cities, playing with some of the cutest kids on earth, exploring a little bit of the (foreign to me) world of alcohol (I'm legal over here!!!!), and so many other activities I can't even count. 

Of course, I've assured myself that I don't need to workout every single day, nor do I even want to workout everyday. How exhausting would that be? Noooo thank you. However, I do still crave some challenging physical activity here and there, amidst the busy schedule of vacation, so I've searched Pinterest through and through for the perfect little burst of intensity and created this "travel-sized" one to help you stay in shape (and/or sane, if you're like me) when you're off exploring somewhere new and exciting. 

Warm Up

I really don't have anything specific here, so just jump around or jog in place and wave your arms around for a few minutes like you're stranded and desperate for help in whatever travel-destination you find yourself. When you're hot and sweaty (hopefully not from actual nerves - remember you're just pretending), you're definitely ready.

Workout 

40 jumping jacks
20 jump squats
20 side-lunges
40 mountain climbers
10 burpees
30 plie jump squats
40 high-knees
10 push-ups
40 mountain climbers (or hold plank and count to 60) 

Rest for one minute and repeat as many times as you can! I finished this set in about 5-6 minutes and then repeated it four times to make for a ~20 minute workout. If you only have 15 minutes, then just finish three sets. If you have more than 20 minutes, then let me see how many you can finish! 

Make sure to take a minute or two to do some quick stretching and cool-down exercises!
