    Poor, unprofessional captaincy - selfish and a poor example. Almost wanted SA to get through to lunch and the heavens to open to see it get punished.

    @Alan_tbt - yeah, that one looks quite exciting.

    @Simba - that's cool, we're all pretty used to dogs of all sizes, and I'm used to outdoor winter swimming - our place seems pretty well-located for those swim options. Any vegan/beer suggestions will be very gratefully received!

    Thanks both

    I'm off to Copenhagen next week - not planning to do much other than wander around, relax and try a few beers, but:

    • Christiania - is it particularly dodgy to go into with a 2-yr old child?
    • Where is good to swim (canals/harbour/beaches)?

    There's the most common misspelled word in your searches then.

    I actually used to pay before I realised noone else did. I think when we do the swimrun, the organisers pay on our behalf.

    VAR is getting all the blame when the issue is shoddily implementing poorly thought-through new rules that at the same time as VAR.

    I usually lock my bike, but this was a stormy day and I was preoccupied anchoring down my clothes so they didn't blow in the water. Just glad I'd left the clothes out of the bag so I could dress quickly - takes a special kind of arsehole to steal someone's stuff while they're in freezing water in February.

    Because it's last minute, I'm just paying the entry fee and not getting sponsorship. I feel justified as I've done the Crisis swim a few times and raised the most a few years ago - got some sweet Zogg's freebies for that!

    Swimming in the Lido and Men's Pond this weekend has really reawakened the buzz. Last year I'd swim in Shadwell lido on the way to work, but since my bike and bag got pinched while I was swimming there last Feb, I've been less keen. Not easy to explain to work your laptop and phone were nicked while you left them on the side to have an illegal swim...

    Finally got to see the new Star Wars - 8 single men sitting separately in a cinema that seats 300. Was not expecting anything wonderful, but also not to see complete dogshit. So bad it's actually comparable to Phantom Menace.

    Utter shit.
