Just three years ago, Victoria said she hated working out. But the 36-year-old fashion designer says she now maintains her super-skinny physique by running four miles to five miles a day.

Victoria (a.k.a. – Posh Spice), 36, and David revealed their workout routines in the latest issue of the British edition of InStyle magazine.

“Victoria’s obsessed with working out,” says David, who plays for the L.A. Galaxy. “She’s in the gym every morning. You run, what, five miles?” Victoria, the mother of three young boys, chimes in: “[I run] Four, five miles every day on the treadmill. For me, I like the fact that, mentally, I can get off whenever I want.”

Meanwhile, David, who’s known as much for his sizzling six-pack as for his soccer skills, dislikes the treadmill and prefers to exercise outdoors.

“I hate running and not getting anywhere,” he says. “I like to be outside. I like to run on the roads late at night. When I’ve got a day off, I’ll go to the gym with Victoria.”

Ironically, Victoria — whose scary-skinny figure has fueled rumors of an eating disorder over the years — used to hate working out, but that all changed when she moved to youth-obsessed Los Angeles in 2008.

In 2007, Beckham said: “I really don’t like the gym; in fact, I can’t stand it. Maybe it’s the whole getting sweaty thing, but it’s just not me.”

While Posh has denied she starves herself, she admits she tries to eat healthy foods and is vigilant about portion size.

“I eat really healthy,” she said in 2008. “I love Japanese food, lots of fish, any sort of fish, any sort of vegetable, lots of fruit, that kind of thing.

“I think there’s a big difference between someone having an eating disorder and someone who is controlled about what they eat.”


LONDON — David Beckham is being considered as a future chairman of the English FA in the aftermath of his country's failed attempt to win the right to host the 2018 World Cup.

According to a report in the News of the World on Sunday, the FA are desperate to use Beckham to restore their reputation after losing out to Russia in Thursday's FIFA vote to pick the World Cup hosts.

The FA are aware that Germany, who hosted the 2006 World Cup, benefited from having German legend Franz Beckenbauer promoting their claims, while Michel Platini, now UEFA president, has helped France improve their worldwide profile.

It is claimed the FA believe former Manchester United, Real Madrid and England midfielder Beckham has the perfect combination of charm and global recognition to bring respect back to the English game's governing body.

The News of the World says Beckham would initially work as a roving ambassador for the FA before eventually taking over the chairmanship once he has the experience of world football's politics.
