Welcome to Spark, Jay! It's always good to find another European on the website since so many are in the States and in faraway time zones. I hope you find time to get acquainted with the site and all it offers. My favorites are the fitness and nutrition trackers. Getting involved in the community is a terrific source of mutual support, accountability -- and fun! So be sure to find a team or two that share your interests and goals. And most importantly...keep Sparking! Michelle

Hi, I'm Jay from Ireland. Have been very fit for most of my life. But last training I did was for an Ironman in 2007. Since then I haven't so much as pumped a tyre on my bike. Ive gained about 10Kilos and feel sluggish and if Im honest old.
Im 48 and feel like Im 58. I was browsing a bookstore yesterday and came across The Spark book. So as I browsed I figured. Why not ?
Well after reading the first few chapters I decided to get off my a*&e and do a walk. I walked for 3 miles and said.... Day 1 done!. Now to join this web community and keep it up.
So feel free to add me. In fact I could probably use the support and motivation :) I'll figure out how to use the website later. Im off to bed now as i work nightshift, but I will visit a gym later and burn another few calories :)
