Arsene Wenger Runs 8-10km Every Single Day, Aged 69
Next time you find yourself struggling for motivation, just remember that former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger goes for a six mile run every single day at the age 69.
In a fascinating interview with The Guardian, Wenger has spoken about life after management, one year after deciding to leave Arsenal following a 22 year spell at the club.
"I read a lot, do a lot of different sports, daily, so that occupies me." he said.
"I run 8-10 km a day. I travelled a lot. I did a lot of game observation, charity, many conferences on football, on management, on motivation, on the meaning of life."
"I personally don't know what it means. I am always under stress a little bit but what was good is I don't have to get up or if I have an interesting lunch I don't have to leave because I have a commitment. I discovered that freedom of time in front of you. It is a good feeling."
69-year-old Wenger runs 10 km a day. What a man:clap: "I read a lot, do a lot of different sports, daily, so that occupies me. I run 8-10 km a day. I travelled a lot.

The 69-year-old left his beloved Arsenal last season after struggling for results in the last few years of his time in North London.
"After careful consideration and following discussions with the club, I feel it is the right time for me to step down at the end of the season." Wenger said in a statement on Arsenal's official website.
"I am grateful for having had the privilege to serve the club for so many memorable years. I managed the club with full commitment and integrity."
He has since appeared as a pundit on bEIN Sports. In fact, Wenger's transition from touchline to TV studios has been smooth sailing so far.
The Frenchman's understanding of the game was on show for the world to see back in February.
What a man.
