The Canada Day long weekend included lots of wine, food, sun and outdoor activity!
Troy and I climbed Seymour on Monday which was about an hour and 15 minutes of pure.... climbing.
Seymour is no joke, but I actually don't mind hills. My go-to strategy is to stay in the lowest gear with a high cadence as I find that this saves my legs from being overworked. I stand only when I really need a break from sitting and want to slow down my legs for 20 seconds or so.
I also stand in the last 200 meters of the hill in order to beat Troy to the top #naturally
Anyway, we followed the climb up with some paddle boarding and a swim in Deep Cove which was beautiful and relaxing and felt incredible after the heat of our ride.
