Mal and I started Day 2 on Oahu bright and early. We were really looking forward to our Workout of the Day, so we popped out of bed to seize the day. (It also helped that our bodies were still on Boston time!)
We got ready to go and then bought a quick snack at the hotel cafe. I had banana and hard-boiled egg.
Then, we drove to CrossFit 808 for a workout. I love visiting boxes when I travel!
CrossFit 808 came highly recommended, so we were excited to check it out.
CrossFit 808 is a smaller (size) box and opened two years ago. It actually reminded me a lot of my home box.
The coaching was really great, and I learned a couple of new things yesterday. The class was also well-structured. After a warm-up, we did Front Squats (I worked my way up to 145 pounds) and then we moved onto Cleans (my heaviest was 125 pounds).
And then it was time for the WOD. Did you happen to notice which one it was? Open WOD 12.2. Ugh, such a hard WOD! I was not looking forward to doing it.
When this WOD came up during the Open last year, I didn’t even know how to do a Snatch. I’m still not great at them, but I managed to make it through 64 reps using 45 pounds, 65 pounds, and then 75 pounds. Obviously, I needed to scale down, but I survived 12.2.
After CrossFit, we headed to Diamond Head Cove Health Bar for fresh juice. I had a serious craving for some!
I ended up going with the Sunrise, which was celery, apple, ginger, lemon, beet, and carrot.
It was delicious””fresh, refreshing, flavorful, colorful, perfect!
Mal and I enjoyed Bogart’s so much the day before, we decided to go back again for breakfast. This time I ordered Michael’s Scramble, which was eggs with mushrooms, asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes, and Parmesan cheese on top and white rice on the side. I was really hungry, and it tasted really good.
More adventures to come from Day 2!
