Upcoming Travel

Next week I get to spend 4 glorious nights in Eastern Michigan on a business trip.  The hotel we are staying at is $200 a night but has no weights.  How freaking stupid is that?  Anyway, I'm going to have to make do with what I can take with.  I'm brining a 16k kettlebell, my footsie roller, and some dexterity balls.  I think the week's going to look like this (all workouts in the morning):

Monday - Lower at home, balls to the wall
Tuesday - Upper and Conditioning in the hotel parking lot in the morning, possible swim in the evening
Wednesday - Swim in the morning
Thursday - Lower in the hotel parking lot, possible swim in the evening
Friday - Upper and Conditioning in the hotel parking lot
Saturday - Heavy grip and kettlebell day with my weights at home

This is going to be a good chance for me to focus on getting the most I can out of limited equipment.  The upper days will probably rely upon a lot of juggling and volume.  The lower workout is going to be based upon assisted pistols, lunges, and single legged deadlifts.  I think I can train well provided I make the time and don't drink at dinner.  I am looking forward to the chance to use the pool.  Just floating in the water is a great way to release tension in the body.

I am going to need to be careful to temper my response to an expense account for all I can eat food.  My natural inclination is to eat until I am sick at every meal.  That's going to weigh me down while meeting with the clients and can have some unpleasant after effects.  I am there to be at the top of my game, not to eat as many dollars worth of food as possible.  I can't lose sight of that.
