Thanks DM

For reminding me to not be a slacker.

Yes, my last workout was 9 days ago, but the past 4 days were spent at Disneyland and California Adventure. If I had to guess we walked at least 5 miles everyday.  We walked so much, that by the time we sat down in the hotel room for the night we were all asleep within 20 minutes.  Of course, do the workouts really count when you live on resort food, chocolate milk and churros for 4 days?

Also, does walking out of a broken down ride count as a workout:

We were on Space Mountain when the ride came to a halt. Thankfully, we were near the end, but come one DL get it together. Our daughter insisted on going on it again the next day as she didn't get to finish the ride. Also, when did kids get so fearless. My child was tall enough to go on all rides but one, she was .5 of inch to short for the Screaming roller coaster in California Adventure. The kid loved them all from Tower of Terror to Space Mountain all of which she completed multiple times. 

One thing I did learn about Disney walking, is distance/endurance training is useful. I switched up my shoes several times during the day Toms, Aciscs and flip flops and overall my feet held up really well. Since we were staying at a Disney hotel our days started around 6am so that we could enter the parks for at 7AM for the special early hour and ended between 8-10PM! This is the way to go. We were able to get so many rides done before 8AM when the parks opened to everyone else.

I am sad to be home! I already miss the California weather.


  1. Glad you had so much fun!

  2. Haha I got the same thing, but only because I have been a big slacker about entering my runs in.

    Glad you had a great time at Disney!

  3. oh how FUN! We've been looking into Disneyland...but are worried we won't have as much fun as DIsneyworld? What are your thoughts? We're huge Disney fans and go once a year but have never been to disneyland...


  4. Glad you got to have some sun:) At least it was pretty nice today, nothing like Cali, but any sun is good, I guess. Nice that daily mile sent you that nice reminder, don't you love that;)

  5. It sounds like you guys had a great time at Disney. Daily Mile has been fussing at me too.
