I haven't in the past, but I am pretty sure I will from now on. I'm to the point where if I miss a couple of runs in a row or days at the gym, I simply don't feel as good. And really, looking back, I regret all the times I've stayed at the Boardwalk and HAVEN'T taken advantage of the opportunity to run around Crescent Lake. I won't make that mistake again!

Of course, for our next non-marathon weekend trip, we'll be staying at AKL for part of it, and I don't think they have any good path to run on...so I may be checking out a Disney resort gym for the first time!

Usually. All but one of my last trips have been short and for at least a half marathon so that was the exercise I did. If I'm there longer or not down there for a race I will get in a morning run on most days (usually the Boardwalk area) and if I'm staying at a resort with a fitness center I'll lift at least once.

I was in the gym every day while on my one Disney Cruise.

I agree with others that say if you are on a routine you shouldn't go off of it completely for any vacation, even Disney. While you do walk a lot in the parks if you are active it isn't really that big of a "workout". You spend most of the time walking at a slow pace, standing in line, and sitting on rides or in restaurants. A lot of people drastically overestimate the number of calories they burn while walking the parks and underestimating the number of calories they consume on vacations.

Yep! I kept to my running plan while there the last two weeks, but changed up the cross-training to make it more WDW-friendly: I used a resistance band in the room for some upper body work, did some yoga while my DS was in the shower, and swam laps while he went down the pool slide over and over and over and over and over.

I want to pick up on the thought of park walking versus a workout. While you are possibly burning additional Kcal while touring MK, you are not offsetting a workout for the most part. I would lighten up your workout if needed, but keep to your schedule as best you can

Great discussion!

I usually do. We are DVC member and when we've stayed at BWV I like walking/jogging the path to DHS, back around the lake to Epcot and back. I have to admit that the last time I went it was so hot that I only did it the first morning though...

I agree that walking burns a few extra Kcal but I also see that most folks in the park offset most if not all the exercise with additional Kcal input - a negative gain for the day.

On our last trip, I was training for a 5k, so yes, I did get up every morning and run. I plan to do the same on our next trip, but will bring my resistance bands to add a little variety. They are nice and light weight to pack! Super excited to run around POR! Last time, it was ASMovies, not as exciting!

Normally we don't because of all of the walking and swimming we do. I have never left WDW heavier than when I arrived.

I think its better to run around outside than a stuffy treadmil indoors looking at some news program on the media. You can do that at home. I would much rather take in the scenes around Disney. You could also hop on a bus to MGM and run that footpath that takes you to the Epcot resorts...then you can jog around the Yacht and Beach clubs, Boardwalk. You would never be far from a bathroom either...plus its pretty.

To those of you who have run the Boardwalk, would you happen to know what the full distance is (just around Crescent Lake).

thx!

Just around the lake is ~.83


From the BW arch sign to DHS and back is 1.5.

But there is so much more than the lake loop.
