On my active rest days or if I'm in the mood to get in low-intensity cardio - but not have it feel like a workout - Anthony and I head to the mall called Ala Moana. Yup, the mall. Ala Moana is the world's biggest open-aired mall and walking down and back on all three floors, without stopping to shop, takes a little less than an hour.
Over the weekend the mall was super empty because of APEC so it was extra nice. No fighting pushy shoppers or trying to out-walk the elderly that also exercise at the mall.
It's actually a good way to shop cause I pass by all the stores first, then decide where I want to spend my money. =)
This time we actually wanted a more intense workout so we added intervals whenever we came across stairs. Sprinting/running up five stories worth of stairs = KILLER! Just don't make it too obvious that you're exercising or the mall security will ask you to stop because you might get hurt and sue them... really!
The top three floors of stairs...
Another good thing about working out at the mall... the farmers market held in the parking lot. Exercise and nutritious food. Can't even get that at the gym!
Again super slow like the mall. On a normal day this place would be packed!
