Let us be honest: when you’re at SXSWi (and other conferences for that matter), you pretty much drink at some social event or another every night. That leaves almost everyone hungover to some degree every day. So, how do you deal with that?
If you’re already an active person, then I suggest continuing to stay active: hit the gym in the hotel for some early morning activity, or even better exercise outside! Run on the treadmill, do something on the elliptical trainer, or even the stationary bike. It will be a bit tougher if you’re hungover but sweat it out and drink lots of water – it will help get the alcohol out of your system and make you that much fresher for the rest of the day.
I’ll be speaking at a few conferences and doing some workshops over the next few months (I’ll post them in a separate announcement soon). I need to keep training while I’m away from home, so I’m looking for some people to work out with – running and swimming mostly.
And, yes, I am serious about this – I would rather train with someone that completely on my own and I have a lot to do: I need to run at least 4 times, swim twice and cycle twice while in Austin and run 6 times, cycle 5 times and swim 5 times while I’m in Vancouver (I head there Jan 31st).
Let me know here in the comments if you’re interested so that I know to look for you and maybe we can sort something out in advance.
