This week represents the most intensive week of training I've had all month - a swim on my own on Monday, a turbo session on Tuesday and a club swim session last night. While man flu did keep me away from training there were also family members to entertain and most importantly Christmas drinks to be had with friends. However on the Monday before Christmas I put my back out lifting some wood for our brand spanking new log burner. As a result I wasn't able to get to the Chiropractor to crack me back into shape until just before the New Year.

However the good news is, despite not training to any great extent I've still managed to lose some weight over Christmas and am now a stone lighter than I was when I completed the Basingstoke Half Marathon (disclaimer: 10 pound of this was before Christmas due to a healthy diet and exercise. I'm not advocating vomiting as an effective way of losing weight).
Anyway, back to SRG. Seeing as I haven't felt the need, or desire, to update the blog in recent weeks the majority of you would not have heard that he has well and truly epitomised a Smug Running Guy by winning not one but two accolades at his running club's end of year awards do. So as well as referring to him as SRG he can now be referred to as Great Bentley Running Club's Marathon champion and Best Male Newcomer 2013. Congratulations SRG!
