Never too old - Day 10

I've seen a 73 year old man on the local tv news this evening training to do 10 marathons in 10 days around one of the lakes in the Lake District. He's had cancer and a heart attack in the past but still since then done the New York marathon and lots of others. If he can do it, then so can I!

We need these sorts of people to give us inspiration. I certainly do. I've not done too badly today. I've tried to pay more attention to what I've committed myself to. I'm not telling myself I'm on a new regime or a new diet; simply that I've committed myself to do these things and eat these things.

But today is all about the example of someone who's been through the health mill and still has the determination to keep healthy. Like he said on the tv interview, you've got to make the most of it because you only come this way once (or words to that effect)
