This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. I -- I hardly know, sir, just at present -- at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.

Just wondering....

Yes, I had a 5K I was training for. So I kept my normal training schedule.

Yes -- walking is certainly good exercise, but it's not the kind of exercise that builds race mileage.

I completely understand what you are saying, I totally get it. The endless walking, in and out, up and down. My problem is I get a lot of other things at WDW as well....Mickey bars, chips, popcorn, "churros of destiny". Things that I would not consume as much of in a normal week of my life. I need some kind of balance and was wondering if any one else feels the need to continue their exercise and what they do.

I did last year and will exercise on our trip this year. I got up early before the family and ran around Stormalong Bay/BW area 3 times that week. On the other days, I still got up and did an mini workout (ABS, pushups, etc) in the room before we left. After vacation, it didn't hurt as bad starting boot camp classes and running again.

I try to run in the mornings - especially if I'm at the Epcot area resorts. Those are simply stunning. Port Orleans is another fun place to run. And if I ever stay at Wilderness Lodge - I drove there last time - I will certainly be running - although I kind of got myself lost a few times at Fort Wilderness, turned a 6 mile run into about a 10 mile run. Should probably have read some signs.

But yes I find the workout helps get me up in the morning, and just sets a tone for the day for me . I certainly dont usually do long runs, just try to pick a fun distance and go till I want to stop (or time constraints make me stop).

Yes, but I am a daily runner, and haven't missed a day in close to 4 years now. If I can run the day after a marathon, I can manage to squeeze in a 5k in the morning while everyone else is getting up and getting dressed.

All runners are equal. Some however, are apparently more equal than others.

Sept. at FW for the upcoming ToT 10 miler

Dec. at FW for a 10 to 13 miler after the Space Coast Marathon then back in Jan. 2013 for another Goofy

I'm a relatively new runner, less than a year still. When we were at CBR in March 2012, I ran 2 laps around the lake. It was great. The next time I run at Disney it will be at least a half!

Thumbs up

I have a job that puts me in Orlando quite often... I run the Epcot resorts loop or some derivation of a DTD/OKW loop most every morning while in the area.

This includes trips where I drive 45 minutes just to run.... yes - crazy

If on property, I will also workout in a gym every other AM

Haha, I love that someone quoted "churros of destiny". At least they are better than pity churros.

Anyway, I really only go to Disney on one to two day trips since I'm local, so I count it as a cross training day and adjust my weekly schedule accordingly. I can definitely see the need for getting runs in while on property if you are there more than two days. I had bookmarked this, and thing it may help you out.

I'm going to try to this trip. I always stay at values, so I don't have a gym available, but I plan on running at least every other morning while I'm there on the path around hourglass lake at Pop and Art of Animation.

I think if you are one an exercise routine it is important to stay close to it when on vacation. Yes, you may be walking 10 miles a day in the parks but it is important to keep the routine of going out there, setting aside the time to work out. That way you never fall out of it and don't have a hard time getting back into it when you get home. Even if you do a shorter than normal workout I think it is important.
