I get twitchy if I can’t swim or run or bike or hike or move in some way when I’m on the road – and I travel a lot for my job (and fun).
Today I’ve landed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana for my niece’s wedding. I brought my running shoes along for the trip,. but it’s hot and muggy here today. I’m staying at the hotel on the Louisiana State University campus, so I decided to wander across the street to the LSU recreation center.
The university recently opened a new outdoor swimming pool, plus indoor facilities including a suspended running track, cardio room, hill repeat ramp, training stairs, climbing wall and basketball court. There’s even what they call a “leisure river.” (I asked if it was a “lazy river,” and was immediately corrected. Apparently no lazy students here.)
I grabbed a quick mile in the pool.
I feel steadier already.
