Luke Harrop Triathlon was today . My left foot and right hand are killing me!! There was a chain in the water and my group swam straight into it. After cutting my hand I swam a bit faster... THERE'S BULL SHARKS IN HERE AND I AM BLEEDING!!!! When I got to the bike My hand was stinging like anything and holding onto the tri bars was getting sticky.

But it wasn't until I pulled my feet out in transition did I notice my shoe also was a lovely red tinge... So much so that the girl pulling up next to me was a little bit horrified... But I still ran. My running shoes have some "red spots" too.

ROMY AND MICHELLE... "Excuse me, I cut my foot earlier, and my shoe is filling up with blood"

The first aid tent was a warzone. I've never seen that many chunks of flesh taken out of people in a tri before. The poor first aider was swamped. i don't think he had enough benedine! There wasn't even a crash this race! It was ALL from the stupid chain in the water.

Someone told me there were oysters on it. Well That sure explains why it was so freaking sharp! I look I've I've cut myself multiple times with a knife.

I am SOOOOO glad my tri suit is a one piece. A few of the girls had huge gashes along their stomach and blood dripping down their thighs. One kid was missing a chunk out of his shoulder, Another guy came in with half his pinky fingernail missing and a deep gash. I didn't come out too badly compared to them.

In the shower I found another gash on my elbow that I hadn't noticed and one more on my right foot.

Triathlon - It's a BLOODY great sport!!!

The race report is to come a little later. :)


Well Haven't I just got the loveliest Fiance EVER. First of all on Saturday he gives me two boxes of my Favourite Vanilla bean gu for my birthday (so I wouldn't buy any at the tri expo) then today at the Gold Coast Triathlon he introduces me to "Kath" from Vision Tri Club "who will be my personal trainer and triathlon coach for the Next month - Happy Birthday Honey"


What a great birthday present! I couldn't get any luckier!!!

So I'm in the market for a new Tri suit for Noosa. My current one is getting a little saggy.

This is the one I have now. I LOVE IT!


White - My TYR suit has developed an unhealthy brown colour that nappysan can't get rid of. As I've discovered, the stain is due to my sunscreen. My sunscreen is not going to change. The suit also got pretty battle scarred from my number coming off when I went to the loo. >_<

A Built in Bra - It's not idea. I'm loving the fact my girls aren't bouncing BECAUSE I'm wearing my Triumph bra. ^_^

Two Pieces - I have an extra long body and super short legs. Plus I have NO chest. I get pretty pissed off with having to pull down "fitted" tops all the time when I'm running. If I go a size up they're too baggy. It annoys me. The last thing I need is to come off my bike and scrape my stomach.



One Piece - I really like the one peice suit! Shows off my abs without showing skin. :)

PINK! - My Bike is Pink, my shoes have pink in them. Generally I'll be in the pink cap category. Give me a suit with pink in it!

Front Zip - Like DUH...

So these are the ones I like best currently....

Okay so I've been a bit tied up... A bit fluey... a bit DEMOTIVATED lateley... Stomach hasn't been helping things... Damn periods... Damn stomach flu...

I pulled out of the challenge... I was dragging the team down. Haven't done too terribly though.

Which sucks...

LUKE HARROP is this sunday... My birthday is on Tuesday... Only 4 tris left this season!!!! O_O





This morning for example... Because I now have a meeting at 8am I can't get motivated to get to the pool. So I woke up... and crawled back into the nice warm bed...

It's starting to become winter here. It's DARK it's cold enough for a doona and frankly BED is more inviting than the pool. Damn...

My work schedule has also been restructured meaning I have to reschedule my training... I'm gonna try to figure something out...


Bought a TRI-PRINCESS top for the Street appeal. Also bought one for my goddaughter since she's loving her tris now as well. :) I got a pink one and bought her a green camo one. (she doesn't know she's getting it yet)



Found a great motivational movie to watch! RUN FATBOY RUN! Bernard Black from Black books is in it... and there's the MASTER from Doctor Who... Who tries to become a marathoner!!! CHECK OUT THE BLISTER!!!
