Use your brain. Mileage does not cause the flu virus.
I've been sick more times running little or no mileage then when running high mileage. Are you suggesting that the low or no mileage caused the flu? Or could it be... possibly... the flu virus itself? Hmmmm....
"Lets learn a lesson", did you?
Malmo, I think without being a smartass, he's just trying to say that, while running high mileage and training harder can improve performance, training harder and the increased stress temporarily can make one more susceptible to illness (from doorknobs, public places,etc)
Malmo, no offense tough guy, but did you get the f*ckin flu in the summer? Isnt that unusual pal?
