To be honest we did as good as no training and the night before had almost no sleep!! we were staying at our lovely friend, Kate's house because she was looking after the dogs for us. And omg! the three of them were a total nightmare, not settling, roaming around the room all night, trying to jump onto the bed... so when we got up at 6am we were not in the best place! In fact if we could have thought up even the tiniest of excuse we would have wimped out!
But we didn't. And I'm so glad we didn't. It was great fun. The swim was lovely. Totally calm and a nice loop of 2, 500m to make up the km. You could have 2 team members swimming or you could just do it yourself. I did it myself.
Then I had to tag Lloyd and he set off on the run. I didn't envy him. It was hot and horribly humid and the run had a huge amount of steep hills! But he did it!
We were home by lunch time feeling rather self righteous! (so we spent the day lying on the sofa watching a film! it was raining!)
we might even do it again next year...
