When I was at Disney World last week I decided to turn on my Garmin watch for 5 hours and see how far I walked. 11 miles. I walked ELEVEN MILES in 5 hours! Now, I had been training for the Princess Half Marathon for about 6 months. I’ve basically been in a constant state of “soreness”, so it didn’t bother me that much. However, in my dear friend Lisa’s case, well her legs and feet ached.
They hurt so much she couldn’t even fall asleep.
And she’s not alone! Every day moms and dads, aunts and uncles, and adults of every age long for a stroller of their own as they hoof it around Walt Disney World.
There are things you can do that will help; like making sure you wear appropriate shoes and making sure that you’ve blister-proofed your feet and more. But what do you do when your legs and feet are throbbing from over-use?
Well my first suggestion would be to make sure you pack icy-hot! You can get it at your local grocery store or drug store. Yes, its stinky, but you’ll be oh so happy that you opted for it.
If you struggle with tight calves, quads and hamstrings anyway. I would suggest purchasing “The Stick”. You can find this wonderful tool online or at your local running store. The Stick is literally the best thing I own right now. It helps me work out the tight knots in my muscles and makes me feel so much better. It’s currently my favorite thing!
A third item you might like is Pepsom salt. It is a great soak that is all natural and will naturally pull out some of the pain. You can also find it at many drug stores and some grocery stores.
Your legs and feet are going to take a beating while you enjoy Walt Disney World, but you can recover faster by packing these goodies! Don’t forget!!
