Ryde 10 – 1 Feb 09 – Dave "ouch" Arnold reports

Dave Arnold reports from the Isle of Wight…

Hi all.


So the 2 Andrews battled it out at Regents Park in apparently bad weather.  Should have tried the Ryde (Isle of Wight) 10 miles. Hilly, and so windy several people had sand in their eyes BEFORE we even got started. Having slightly missed the start I realised within 300-400 metres I realised that I was going to struggle badly today, but not without surprise as I know this week I’ve been over tired and under trained / rested …but hey ho!


Add the cold and winds to the hills and it was always going to be a slow 10 miles  for everyone and I was no exception ..posting my slowest 10miles …yep a PW!! (1:08:20). However it was scenic and on a good day would be stunning.


So, how did things go at Watford Half?


Look forward to hearing everyone’s tales of the weekend.
