Do you consider yourself to have a healthy lifestyle?
Working in excess of 80 hours a week may not be physically healthy, but it is mentally stimulating and I believe is conducive to positive ageing. I love work, which I view as a hobby that I am paid for.
Do you exercise regularly?
Swimming is the perfect exercise and I was up to a mile a day in the pool, but I have lost the habit because of my work schedule, but October 1 is my new start date.
Do you do it willingly or begrudgingly?
After a career in sport, exercise has always been a positive experience. I also like the challenge of reaching new goals.
What time do you go to bed?
Late-night movies and videos are a bad habit and invariably I am up until midnight. Ingrid has the remote control until 9pm.
What time do you get up in the morning?
I am an early riser. The morning paper and coffee at 7am is a treat. I prefer mornings to evenings for work.
What do you have for breakfast?
Orange juice, coffee and crunchy cereal with fruit and yoghurt. However, if I have an early morning meeting, I love a full Irish.
Pasta is a special favourite.
Ingrid always cooks a three-course dinner for me when I come home from work. She has always been an inventive cook and despite her own work schedule she never failed to have dinner on the table.
Constant cups of tea.
Do you take any supplements?
The more I study the dietary habits of young sportsmen, the less inclined I am to take supplements. They are unregulated and have poor labelling information.
How much water do you drink?
Water is for grass. I am not part of the 'bottle of water in the hand' movement. My cholesterol level is 4.7, so I am happy.
Do you have a skincare routine?
Aftershave, lotion and a sharp razor.
Allergies are the last refuge of the hypochondriac.
