We were lucky that we at least managed to do that at that time .

Is the above sentence right?
I mean: Perhaps we could've done more things, but we should think it was enough in this situation, otherwise we might not get anything at that time. Given our capability, possibility to succeed doing one thing was very low.

I know it's a bit obscure.

Thanks

The sentence looks ok, but it would be better if you could give specifics, like what was done at what time.

The sentence works, as long as the person being addressed understands what was done when. [If having three 'thats' so close together bothers you, you could eliminate the first one.]
