Have you recently launched your site and verified it with Google Webmaster Tools? Sometimes the process can take a few hours (or days) to fully propagate. My advice would be to try it again in a few hours and see whats going on. If its still not working after 24 hours then you might have an actual problem. Though from visiting your link it does seem to be working but it takes a second to load the XML feed (but that could be just me).
