Hiking 2:00:00 [1]

Up to Mount Seymour (via First Pump and Second Pump/Tim Jones Peak) with Oscar. We're leveling up in Operation Outdoorsify Oscar :) Such a beautiful clear day. This hike definitely has some stunning views of the city, Indian Arm, and then the many many Coastal mountains behind it. We could even see Baker. It was fairly busy, but not uncomfortably so. I think it took us just over 4 hours, but this included stops and breaks at all the peaks. The trail guide says is 9km return with 450m of elevation gain. It was fairly rocky getting up, so we were a little slow getting down. Would recommend on a nice day!

Running 22:12 [1] 3.1 km (7:10 / km)
shoes: Asics Cumulus 17

I'm trying to be good and not get too injured with running. My physio recommended doing 1 minute walking, 1 minute running for 3km, and then building up the running portion after every 3 "runs" to get to running the 3km continuously. Let's see how this goes. One minute of running is barely enough to break a sweat, although it was kind of nice because my belly was still a little too full of curry when I went out. My feet are currently taped, and I was using my new orthotics and added a heel lift for my left side as apparently, it's about 6mm shorter than my right (who knows if that's a permanent thing, or just cause my hips are all funky and twisted and not level).

Pilates 40:00 [2]

Pilates isn't really an accurate description. It was a Lagree workout, which is more like Pilates on steroids. There is the sliding platform of death called the megaformer, and pretty much something was burning for all 40 minutes. I can't imagine spending $35 for a class though...

Swimming 21:00 [1] 0.82 km (25:37 / km)

Swimming at Kits pool. I don't even remember the last time I swam laps in a pool. On the first lap, I didn't realize it was 137 metres, so might have started a little too fast! Mix of freestyle and breaststroke.
