Great suggestions so far. I’m also a fan of adjusting the training schedule so I’ve had big training weeks leading up to a rest week that matches my vacation. Then vacation can be vacation, and I don’t feel like I have to train much or at all. If I am on a family vacation, another trick is to take advantage of time zone changes — an early wake up local time is easy if you’re still feeling like you’re 3 hours ahead, and that can really help prevent “stealing” vacation time for working out.
For last minute work trips, I’m generally trapped on the treadmill. Pack a bunch of shorts/socks/and shirts, and do what I can. Every hotel I’ve stayed in in recent years has had a treadmill, so it’s easy and I can almost always work it around dinner/work requirements.
