Hi, Ive got my medical examination on thursday so hopefully do my pjft the following day... at my AFCO i was told- before the medical not to do any intense excercise for 48 hours as this can increase the ammounts of protein in the urine test, resulting in a failure (which i obviously dont want to do.) My plan was to get back running most days this week as ive had a few off just training at the gym, is this right meaning i should have a couple of days off beforehand cause i cant understand why that would affect it??

Cheers,

Lee

My AFCO didnt mention anything like that, but if you're concerned about being in shape for the PJFT then i'd suggest just putting it back a few days, youve got 28 days on completion of the medical to do your PJFT (i think) so its no rush, a few extra days won't make a difference.

nah pjft isnt a problem at all im quite happy about doing that i get around 9.20 no problems but i just wanted to keep running this week in preparation (fingers crossed) for a PRMC this side of xmas if all goes well. Just cant understand why training would affect the protein in urine ah well guess either way if i dont train the day before i cant go wrong!

Cheers,

Lee

Have to say, whilst not in possession of a degree in medicine, I'd love to know who advised you about the potential to fail a medical because you were keeping fit!

I'd treat that advice with a heavy dose of scepticism unless you have a medical condition & the advice came from a medical professional.

To much protein ?

You'l be fine, its easy, 5-10 minutes, all you basically do is shake your left leg here your right leg here, in out, in out, shake it all about. Hearing test, open your mouth, puts a stick in your urine sample, check your balls..

and thats it.

I think there may well still be places on PRMC before Christmas- get your PJFT boxed-off soonest & you may just make it in time.

Good luck.
