I got to work last night and there was a big medical van in the yard, one of my work colleagues came out of it and shouted that it was my turn for a health check !! ha ha nobody new about it, obviously the memo must have got lost coming from the office to the mill, as per usual.
The nurse checked my-ears-eyes-erm water-blood pressure-body mass index, all were ok apart from my left eye, which i had had an opp on for a detached retiner a few years ago, while i was chatting to him, i noticed this machine on the table, i thought and i was right, it was to check my resp_____ erm how hard i could blow, i thought i will fail this test, he got me to take a deep breath in, and blow into this machine, which i did 3 times, then another 3 times but to blow out as hard and fast as i could, didnt like that one.
He new that i was 56 and had quit smoking 6 weeks ago, but before he gave me the results of the test, he asked me if i exercise ? and i said yes cus it helps me with the quitting, haaa
he said, because the machine says that you have the lungs of a 48 year old. I was rite chuffed i tell you !!
This tells me that exercise is important for helping to repair your lungs
I hope i havnt bored you toooooo much.
