Last week, we took the fam on our first-ever trip to the Happiest Place On Earth — which is also one of the Most Physically-Challenging Places on Earth, or, at least, it was the way we did it.
And let me tell you guys: I was ridiculously grateful for all that work I’d done with AbsoluteFIT, because our time in Disneyland and California Adventure was a three-day park-hopping 6:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. extravaganza of near-constant motion (walking, climbing stairs, walking, getting into and out of boats and carts and fiberglass elephants, walking walking RUNNING TO GET A FASTPASS, walking, stairs, etc., fully one-third of which was done while carrying a 35 pound side pack, aka our three-year-old son — thank dog our 7-year-old daughter didn’t need to be carried!).
We wanted to see and do everything — we had an itinerary and an app to keep track of it all. We arrived at the Grand Californian on Tuesday, swam in the hotel pool, ate dinner and got to bed early. That was necessary because, according to my mileage tracker, before flying back on Saturday we did:
- Wednesday: 8.34 miles, entirely in California Adventure.
- Thursday: 7.83 miles, mostly in Disneyland.
- Friday: 13.2 miles, back and forth between the parks several times.
Holy Shatner, was it fun!!! I can’t wait to go back. And I wouldn’t want to, at anything less than my current fitness level — I’m sticking with AbsoluteFIT!
