I'm not telling you this to brag but to remind you that it's never too late to change the course of your life. And this Men's Health Week, 10 to 16 June, is a great time for men of all ages to take their health into their own hands. You might start by going vegan.
The record I set was for the Enduroman Arch to Arc, a 290mile ultra distance triathlon that involves running, swimming and cycling from London to Paris. Before me, only 10 athletes had ever completed the challenge... It's a pretty tough nut to crack.
