I'd heard of Victoria's reputation as the most British of Canadian cities; a garden city with turn of the century architecture, horse-and-carriage rides and English afternoon tea. But in British Columbia's capital I discovered a youthful spirit, with trendy bars and cafs, a world class food scene, a lively harbour where something was always on the move and plenty of adventure and wildlife experiences on the doorstep. If seems that Victoria has something to interest every type of traveller, so if you are spending a few days in Victoria, here's my guide on what to see and do for your perfect weekend in the city. Friday check out the whale watching in Victoria Whale-watching is one of the most popular things to do in Victoria, through the months of April to October and it's an all-round nature experience. On your boat trip you'll see the marine wildlife of the area; seals, bald eagles and sea lions as well as hopefully spotting some Humpback whales and Orcas. It's a good idea to check the weather on arrival in Victoria and book onto a whale watching trip as early as possible during the weekend, just in case the weather changes and

This cheetah doesn't want you to know that she is totally unprepared for racing. manfredrichter / Pixabay This weekend, I'm racing Culpeper International. It's local and hilly. And I am feeling very unprepared. At least as compared to my previous races. I've really been nailing my training over the past few months, so to have such a lackluster month right before a race has me feeling a bit off kilter. No regrets, of course I was dealing with a small injury that led to another small injury and my quad still isn't quite right (but it's getting there). And it's not that I'm actually untrained. Just not feeling quite as prepared as I would have liked for a race that is as challenging as this one will be. So I'm going in without any real time goals, just to finish strong, whatever that happens to mean on the day. On to last week's training: Monday: Rest Day Tuesday: 2 mile run and Team Fight swim Wednesday Supposed to be an FTP test but I didn't have the energy, so I put it off and ran Thursday's 4 miles instead. Thursday FTP test time! And when I was done, I discovered that the battery in my power meter was just low enough that it dropped out a few times during the test, so no measurable result. Alas. Friday 2000 meter swim, followed by my annual physical where my doctor proudly proclaimed me healthy (and commented that she likes to see healthy people come in for checkups and why don't more of you do this?) Saturday Volunteered at the Team Fight tri camp, which meant lots of swimming in some crazy water and some running of the bike/run course as I helped direct people. Went home and finished up my 6 mile run on the treadmill. Sunday I was dead after Saturday, but went out to ride anyway. Felt like I was dying the entire time, and when I finished, discovered that I was PRing segments of the course. No wonder everything hurt!

Do you hear London calling? I recently took a walk around Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens on a spare day, while visiting my parents who live in London. I was struck by how much fun it can be to be a tourist in your own backyard, seeing familiar places that you probably wouldn't spend much time in, unless you happen to be showing a visiting friend around. In this guide on things to do in Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, I've teamed up with London Connection, who offer luxurious apartment stays in Central London, that let you experience London like a local. The Rose Garden in Hyde Park Let's start our walk at Hyde Park Corner where there's a convenient tube stop. Just inside the park gates we'll find the Rose Gardens, a beautiful area enclosed by yew hedges, filled with shrub roses and herbaceous borders. Many people don't even realise it's there as they walk along the broad path from the Queen Elizabeth gates towards the Serpentine. The climbing roses are trained along chains between the pillars, surrounding the central statue of a boy with dolphin, and you can find a quiet benches to sit and enjoy the bees
