Maui 2012, Day 3

Today was a day set aside for shopping and lounging.  Oh, and CrossFit.  We started with breakfast on the lanai again and then made our way to Lahaina CrossFit.  That's right.  I made a point to get at least one WOD in while we were there.  I would have put in another one, but the rest of the days we were there we already had something scheduled.

I had exchanged emails with Coach Anthony prior to our arrival and was welcomed with Aloha love.  They have a gated kid area so we told the kids they could come along, even though I was the only one that was going to work out (my hubby hurt himself and passed on the WOD).  I made it to the 9 o'clock class.  Below is the workout:

Looks tough, right?  It was.  This was a Mega Metcon and even though Anthony let me cut the runs in half (I was sporting some brand, spanking new Vibrams and he didn't want me to injure myself) the sun was beating down on me!  Plus, the runs were up hills!  My box has a small hill which, compared to Lahaina's hill, I will now refer to as a ramp!  I used 35 pounds for the snatches and a 16" box for the jumps.  I finished in 22:14. I would have finished sooner, but one of the regulars, who happens to hate running, wanted me to keep him company and he wanted to walk most of it.  Plus, he was very entertaining, telling me about the evening he had which including a lot of alcohol and a back flip off the bar!

After that we drove back to the resort so that I could wash off the workout and refuel.  We spent the rest of the afternoon shopping.

After dragging the kids around for an hour we stopped and decided to treat them to some shaved ice cream:

And, because both of my kids are so social, we hung out and chatted with the locals.  My kids got really up close and personal:
This was at Sure Thing.  They offer Grass-Fed Burgers!
We went back to the resort to get a little rest before our Luau dinner.  I'm going to write about that separately because I have a few pictures I want to share.

Ta-ta for now!
