And blow…

The peak of Mont Ventoux sits in the rarefied atmosphere 1912 metres above sea level. To turn the crank all the way to the summit, it’s going to be crucial to get oxygen to my tiring muscles.

As part of work’s healthy lifestyle campaign, a few nurses came into the office today to test the age of our lungs. Just had to blow as hard as possible into what appeared to be a toilet roll tube with a calculator attached.

Following three attempts I was so lightheaded that I didn’t really understand the results. Something at 4.64, and a “FEV1” at 113%…

But anyway the headline was; I’ve got the lungs of a 24 year old! That’s gotta be a good sign, right?
