5am wake up ready for a 7am start.
Yeap! I did it! I jumped into the water and swam (badly) for 100m, rode my bike for 10km then ran my little heart out for 2km. I did a triathlon. They called it a try-a-tri, I called it a baby tri.
All done in 46 minutes. Not bad considering I thought it would take me 2 hours. Hmmm...
I was quite proud of myself for stepping out of my comfort zone and giving something 'very scary' a go as I wouldn't call myself a 'athletic/sporty person'. But I find if I have an end goal (race day) I am more inclined to get out and exercise. And boy did this triathlon make me get out and exercise. I went off and had swimming lessons as I hadn't been taught how to swim properly. I even, on occasions rode my bike to the local pools, swam then rode home again. Now that was serious commitment!
So now I can tick that off my bucket list. I can now happily sit on the couch for Winter, hibernating under my crochet creations until November when I will have to find something else to make me exercise.
