I'm 33 years old; I'm getting old. Every year is different, and as an athlete, you've got to be honest with yourself.

Some suggestions for you :

Everything happens for a reason, so you shouldn't get wound up.

I believe no matter who you are, respect yourself, respect others.

You imagine running 120 miles a week, week in, week out, for the past four or five years. It takes a little bit out of you.

The coach is the boss at the end of the day. I do whatever he tells me and don't ask questions.

Even though running is work for me, I always miss it if I take a break. A lot of people find running relaxing, but I can never switch off from timing and competing against myself.

My goals are to run the London Marathon and do the best that I can.

It's doesn't just come overnight, you've got to train for it and believe in yourself; that's the most important thing.

On the track, you know what you're capable of, but being at the birth, you have no control.

A guy like me, yes, I am good in terms of championship races, and that's where I dominate - but in terms of running fast times, I haven't quite done that.

In life, if people need help, then we should try and help them out.

I'm away about six months of the year, competing here in the U.K. or in training camps in Arizona, Ethiopia, the Pyrenees.

To be knighted, that would be amazing. I remember Alex Ferguson from Man Utd got it and Steve Redgrave - to be in the same category as them is amazing.

Let me do what I do best. And that's to run and represent my country and make my country proud.

Social media can be dangerous. People hide behind their computers and write negative things, so I like to keep it about communicating with my fans.
