TRAIN MAUI
« on: September 19, 2009, 04:34:13 PM »
This is the place for people on Maui to coordinate training.

SUN 9/20 - starting about noon [waiting for confirmation from Brian, JC, Duke, Levi or Shiloh]

Iao Valley - about 2 miles west of Wailuku - road ends in parking lot.

This is a nice muddy hike. The guava are probably still ripe. Maybe gingers in bloom? We'll hike into Iao [upstream] for a while on the paths, then rock-hop downstream.

Expect to get wet and muddy. Expect to fall in the water at least once.
We can scale this hike down if you've got friends/ family who want to come along but aren't into parkour.

Let me know if there's a better place to put this thread. I can move it around until we find the best place for it.
I had it in BOOT CAMP but because Oahu's so busy, you can't tell when something new has been posted. By having it here, you can instantly see "Oh, Maui Hotspots has something new. I wonder who's training?"

I was thinking of maybe even putting it in the main thread area - not as a sticky, tho.

Here's my best guess for the rest of the week's training.

TUE 22: 2:30 Kihei - HI. Walking, lifting, throwing, catching, hand strikes.
WED 23: 6 pm Kahului - KC. Rails, low walls, light PK
THU 24: 2:30 Kihei - HI.
FRI 25: 3 pm Maui Lu to Sugar Beach
SAT 26: GTG - no time for a regular workout

Special dates to remember:
NOV 19-22: Brian O from SFPK comes for bro's wedding - Probably an Iao Valley hike
JAN 21-25: HIpk National Jam on Oahu

Maui County Fair starts THU!

Here's my guess at this week's training:

MON: 2:30 Kihei - HI, KCC: Run as many of the MN tests as I can [All but rope?]. Class after.
TUE: 2:30 Kihei - HI: Finish tests or light training. Work after.
WED: 6 pm Kahului - KC. Light PK. If new shoes are non-marking, may amp up the level a bit. Church at 7:30.
THU: GTG - no time for regular workout [maybe]
FRI: Working at the fair KC food booth in evening. GTG?
SAT: Working at the fair in evening? I don't know when my wife signed us up.

SUN: 7:30 am Kahului - KC - play mass games with kids? I had a lot of fun playing capture the flag yesterday, but was a sweaty soggy mess after. It depends if I'm playing guitar or not. Not sure if we're helping at the fair. I hope not. I'd like to run the beach at least once.

GTG = Grease the gears = very small workouts spread throughout the day.
KC = King's Cathedral, 777 Mokulele, Kahului HI. Low walls, stairs, windows, planters, shipping containers, loose pipe and tires. Rails are ok for vaulting OVER, but don't trust them to land on - not designed for impact, and not bolted securely. 
KCC = Kihei Community Center, 303 E Lipoa, Kihei HI - they have a nice pool, with a large clock. Some ok rails, low and 8' walls, planters, trees, grass, picnic tables.

Sorry I missed it. My training this month has been pretty minimal so far.

Here's my guess at this weeks training unless I take time off to train with Shiloh in the morning...
MON: 5 pm Kihei - short training. Class after.
TUE: GTG - working solid 7:30 am to 11 pm
WED: 6 pm Kahului - KC. Light PK. Church at 7:30
THU: 5 pm Kihei
FRI: 7 pm Kahului - KC. After guitar practice.
SAT: Either early before work, or late when it's dark and I'm tired.

SUN: Not Lahaina. Austin and Glenn haven't been in touch. So I'm looking open 12 - 5 or so.

Its all good you know how it goes man. 

Im looking pretty full this week too.  Got a funeral and all that goes with it to tend too. Just kinda training when I have open time. 
  You asked how much in advance my dad gives me, he sometimes tells me weeks ahead, sometimes minutes. lol.  I don't have a set job myself right now so he likes to take advantage of this.  And I work at night wit my mom.

Your work looks CRAZY. That is long hours man. 

So Sunday was suppose to be Lahaina? I think I might be able to come train with you if there isn't any more family stuff to attend.  Where ever you may be.

Here's my guess at this week's training:
HI = invaded - may want to train somewhere else? KCC?

SUN: 2:00 Wailea - Beach sprints, long jumps, flippy stuff [hah!] and swimming [or a long nap]

MON: 4:00 Kihei - HI: 500m, and some lifting? Class after.
TUE: 4:00 Kihei - HI: Sprints, hi and long jumps, climbing. Work D 5-10.
WED: 6 pm Kahului - KC. Light PK. Church at 7:30.
THU: 4:00 Kihei - HI: Sprints, QM, cats. Work D 5-11.
FRI: 6-7:30 Kahului - KC. Heavy pk. Maybe a night swim after?
SAT: Work D 11-6. Gotta try to work out before, because I'm wiped after. I just want to eat, and then it's dark.

SUN: not sure.

Looks like you have to have an official XTERRA number to get onto the practice course.
My question: Is the practice course just for biking, or running also? I don't want to be running, and have a bunch of elite bikers crest a hill at 30 mph and run me down. Part of the run is along Big Beach, around Puu Olai through the kiawe...

POST 1000.

This isn't working, yet. So...

Ryan F. HIpk and Brian O. SFPK are both coming to Maui Nov 19-22. Ryan will [probably] be in Kaanapali, and Brian in south Kihei. Brian's in town for his brother's wedding, but we've talked about hiking Iao. Ryan is coming with a couple friends who are not traceurs, and they're doing the tourist thing.

I'll be there, one way or another.

Sheraton just informed me that they canceled my booking to make room for a wedding...in november, rediculous lol... but chances of me coming just got cut in half.  Honestly I've got way too much on my plate right now, dunno if I'd be in any shape for a trip in november anyway...cause the way my schedule is right now I'll have a major presentation to put together and a 15pg paper just for that weekend.  I think I'll be able to do it, but the trip might not be the stress reliever I wanted it to be.

But, I'm still hoping that something can be figured out soon though.  I think we'll just end up renting out a house for the weekend if we can't find anything else.

Hey me and a friend of mine have been trying to find a parkour community in maui for awhile and i kinda just stumbled on to this site. We're just amature traceurs but have been trying to find some people to train with and learn from, so if your still doing that training thing let me know just send me a message or email me. Thanks

Hi Nate! Glad you found us. Where you stay?

Shiloh and I are still training. Shiloh's in Wailuku, I'm in Kihei, but come to King's Cathedral in Kahului a couple times a week.
I won't train there this Friday... they're doing an encore performance of "Hotter Than Hell" at 7. It's free, and I'm going to be watching it ;D

hey gregg, giving you an update on my maui trip.... super bummed, doesn't look like I can go.  My friends and I decided it would be better to go after finals, sometimes in december....although I'm almost 100% its gonna cost more to go during the holidays...maybe I'll work on swimming there?  building a little hut and living off the sea for food?
