Use Traveling as an Excuse to Cross Train

It's hard to change your running routine, but runners who travel might have a unique opportunity to help their running injuries along.

If you are struggling with an injury and having trouble making yourself rest, try to use a business trip as an opportunity to do some cross training. If you are in a hotel with a decent gym, make yourself bypass the treadmill and running, and do some stationary biking/pool running instead. Ideally, you can get over the hump of your injury and ease back to running when you get home.
