BWell: on fitness, health and wellbeing
As a world champion in athletics, it will come as no surprise that our future members are fascinated by what your fitness and wellbeing routine looks like. Can you tell us how you have maintained fitness since retiring from professional athleticism?
When you are a competitive athlete your whole day is based around training and competition. In my case, I would wake up in the morning, run ten miles on the road, do a training session at lunchtime in the gym and then another in the evening. Your whole day is based around the training regime because that’s what you need to be the best in the world. The big shift for me when I retired was not that I missed the competition. Within two years of retiring I was a Member of Parliament so I went from a very focussed activity which was athletics, to a political environment which was 24/7. The biggest change was that my day was suddenly not built around exercise. It took me a bit of time to understand that the only way I was going to keep a moderate amount of health and fitness was to diarise the fitness aspect and so in my office, from many years ago and until this day, when I say I’m in the gym nothing else gets in the way.
