Christmas Eve at Hardass

9am Christmas Eve crew after the WOD

Catching a WOD at Hardass Fitness/CrossFit Hawaii was high on my must-do list while I was home for the holidays.  The last time I was here, around Labor Day, they were just moving into their new location.  Everything is set up now and the construction is done!  

I stopped by for the 9am class on Christmas Eve to do the final WOD from the 2011 CrossFit Games: The End.  We had the option to row 20 calories or do a 400m run.  Also since we did not have enough sleds, the sled pull at the end was replaced with 10 rope climbs.

The End aka "The Christmas Games": 3min AMRAP, 1min rest, 6min AMRAP, 2min rest, For Time:
  • 20 calorie Row (or 400m run)
  • 30 Wall Ball Shots 20# to 10'
  • 20 Toes to Bar
  • 30 Box Jumps 24"
  • 20 KB SDHP 3 pood
  • 30 Burpees
  • 20 Shoulder-to-Overhead 135#
  • 10 Rope Climbs
Three months later, and I still really suck at rope climbs.  I spent probably 1/3 of the time on my inefficient rope climbs.  Everyone here is so good at them!  Something to work on this year.

Some pictures:

5.  So happy to see them!  My partner for the 31 Heroes WOD Heather and her husband, Tony!

6. Fully constructed Keiki area.

7. Equipped with toys and a TV.

The extra longgg workout was just what I needed to start my holiday/home eating spree.  It was also really great to catch up with friends and meet some new people, like one of the trainers, Todd.  Unfortunately, I did not get to see everyone I hoped to run into that day.  I also missed Kimo and Diane :(.  Next time!  Looks like I'll be home soon!
