Also joined a friendly downtown running club, run 11km every Thursday night with them, some of them are pretty quick ultra-runners so will hopefully speed me up!
Just started back at this at my local pool. Wasn't as terrible as thought might be and at least now, following my swim training last winter, I know what I'm doing wrong...

My beloved racer bike has not seen as much of the area as she should have done. Main obstacle being frequent heavy rain which makes for a) less enjoyable and b) less safe cycling. Have had some great long outings, highlight was a couple of weeks ago, climbing the 1000m or so to the top of Cypress Mountain (where they hosted the least snowy bit of the Winter Olympics) in glorious sunshine. And just about avoided hypothermia on the free ride down.

Skiing, snow shoeing, ski touring...
Have got ski passes to Seymour Mountain (any Vancouverite you mention that to says 'oh yeah, Seymour, I learnt to ski there at elementary school' so it's about our ability level) and it should open in about 10 days. So watch this space! (And the very beginner slope even has a magic walkway so don't have to get on a chairlift yet!)
