Disaster for eConveyancer’s Vanessa Blount last week.

With only a month to go before she runs the London Marathon, she was geared up for a week of heavy training. Then man-flu struck, meaning training was out of the question. She lost 3lbs as a result.

“I was due to run 22 miles on Sunday but it now looks unlikely I’ll make that sort of distance any time soon,” an upset Blount told Mole.

Mortgage Strategy also lost 3lbs this week, but we’re still about 4lbs behind Blount.
