Just to let you all know.

OMG OMG OMG I did it!! I did it!!

I was so nervous today!

I couldn't sleep last night I woke up every hour on the hour and I was getting so frustrated.

I got up at 5.30 and took a shower and then got myself ready for the triathalon.

I had porridge for breakfast as I felt like I should have a great start to the day.

When we got there the girls were all pumped and we went on the bikes to warm up for 10 minutes.

I went first as I was walking and the others were running. Plus one other lady started at the same time because she was doing 2km more than the rest of us...

Got hubby to walk the first part with me as it was down at the river so we dropped off the car at the end of the river part of the walk.

Hubby kept saying slow down slow down but the music I had chosen was making me walk faster and hey that was ok I was feeling really good about it.

I did the 10km in 1 hour and 35 minutes (in my practice I did it in 1 hour 55 minutes) OMG OMG 20 minutes off my time!!!

Woohoooo I was smiling for the last 10 minutes of the walk because I knew that I was beating my time. I was sore but I was pumped that is for sure.

I got back and the receptionist at the gym was outside screaming and waving her hands around saying woohooo way to go and then I went to cross the street to come over and she said keep coming keep coming or your time will be longer. I said "I am not going to keep coming when the car is coming my way he he he"

Got upstairs at the gym and the girls were flabagasted that I was there earlier than I said I would have been. I got up there and one of the ladies came out saying "you are too early... too early I had 400metres to go on the rower and I had to go really fast just so that I could come and see you he he he you are too early he" so I asked our trainer if she would phone my hubby to say I was early and could he come down and she came back after phoning him and said that he said "OMG what is wrong with her she is too early" he he he so I shocked everyone.

I did the 8km Bike ride in 23 minutes and the girls were all there giving me support and finally my family turned up he he he.. hubby was smiling at me like I was OH I don't know.

Then I got on the rower and half way through I was thinking OMG I want to beat my 12 minutes that I did last week. Then I heard my mother in law at the back of me saying OMG I thought you would have just gotten back now and here you are almost finished. 5 minutes in to my rowing the last person was finishing and I still had more time to go. I did the row in 10 minutes and 9 seconds OMG OMG I shaved off so much but I was now all wobbly and tired like you couldn't believe.

We went and sat at the reception area with bananas and champagne and orange juice... it was like soooooo exciting. I was on such a high!! such a high! I had done it!


Came home and felt so hungry that hubby made me a bagel with tomato and lettuce etc it was sooo great to eat yummy food. Then I went up for a LONG spa bath with bubbles hmmmmmmm.

I am going out for dinner with the ladies tonight and I can't wait... It is going to be so much fun.

OH I forgot to mention that one of the ladies gave us all a present. It was a key ring with a little sneaker and tennis ball on it to remind us of our Triathalon.

This is a photo of all of us before we start the Triathalon (the lady in pink is our trainer.

This is us 2 hours later woohooo we have finished and we all look buggered he he he. These ladies are a wonderful bunch of ladies and I am so previledged to have them as friends. I have achieved so much in this LEAN class and I am happy I did it. I did it! I did it! and I met some great friends along with it Woohoooo.

Thanks everyone for reading. Love you all.

Love Chubbymum
