It was all at a very leisurely pace, fastish walk and gentle cycle, a bit frustrating and, having been on my back for the best part of two weeks, it was very tempting to crank up the pace a bit and crack on!! They weighed me at the end and it turns out I have lost nearly 5kg since I got to Santiago... 4 days of ayuno to thank for that!
They've got me on a breathing machine to try and help absorb the air bubbles in my chest as well. Basically I have to breath in as hard as I can (till my lungs pop) 10 times in a row.
Paicey and Jenny are drilling me mercilessly on it; they have both sworn not to have any steak 'till I get out and I think they are starting to suffer.

Let's get physical!
Been down to the gym here this afternoon, an amazing facility. They wanted to check out my BP and heart rate while I did some really minor phys. So they hooked me up to a wireless monitor and off we went.
