The nurses and Dr couldn't hide their surprise and told me I was 'disgustingly fit', and going by the looks of the people who were there before me - I was last on the list - I can understand why they were so surprised! I was pleased to get an updated MHR of 142bpm as I'd been using 132. It probably is higher than 142 but that's where the test stopped so that's what I'll use for training in future. On Friday, I have a lung capacity test just to make sure there's no problems in that area. Have already had blood tests (no results yet) and chest x-ray (no results yet).
I didn't like the Dr much when, commenting on my breathlessness while running, he added, "Well, you're not getting any younger, you know." To which I replied, "Really? I hadn't noticed!" And after that, our feelings for each I'm sure were mutual!
