Below 7. Heading for Polar Bear territory. The One Km below 5 hats are waiting to be distributed to the hardy souls willing to overcome pain and numbnuts. Brooding skies, but no rain. Time to play doubles with Giles, Longpela and Nick – the stretched ones win. A shortish swim with Nando. Nicky has a day off and tells us about Marcus Aurelius (the last significant pre-Christian philosopher); and in the sauna we talk about being caught short for a pee (it descends into absurdity) and the rituals of buying pressies for Christmas. Meanwhile Sue and Sue bring out the iSpy at the Lido books; Chris is mildly looking forward to a month of Aladdin in Carlisle and the lifeguards keep losing their football in the pool.
