The Great Wight Attack is here!

Today we started off on the challenge we began planning 9 months ago.

We had a great swim across to the island with very good sea conditions (though at one point the island definitely wasn’t getting any closer!)

The run was tough with the first half in the baking heat, and the last few miles…..felt like I had swim the solent….so pretty tired and achey.

I am now about to hit the hay to recharge ready for tomorrows 30 mile run.

Thanks to everyone who came to our send off, I felt immensely proud at how much support everyone has given.

  1. Well done Martyn and Dave. I suspect I don’t need to wish you a good night’s kip… Well done today and good luck tomorrow. You have a lot of people back here wishing you the best. The forecast is good – mostly cloudy so you shouldn’t have the heat of this afternoon to deal with. Good luck guys. Jim

      Hi Jim, thanks for your kind words, am a bit sore today to say the least but happy (and somewhat surprised) I’ve made it this far. I got a reasonable nights sleep last night and I’ve been eating for England the last couple of days (that’s going to have to stop when I get Weather definitely looking better for it today, fingers crossed for a safe journey home.
