yes malmo but isnt the immune system temporarily weakened during a block of high training stress? but for a guy like you, maybe 170mpw is not a high training stress.
What difference does that make? If you get sick at the same frequency as the sedentary population, then what's the problem?
My god, some of you guys are just thick.
The fact is, my peers are athletes (dozens upon dozens of them) who have put in blocks of high mileage, and I have never heard of a chronic flu problem among them. Surely if running a lot caused and increase in susceptibility to the flu or URTIs I should have noticed it? Or at least my friends, who have done this for a living would have noticed it too? But, noooooooooo, only anonymous nitwits on an internet message board are suggesting that blocks of high mileage causes the flu.
Do you think that people who actually have trained like this, and have actually done this for a living, and whose peers have trained like that, and have done this for a living,too, might have a bit more experience and wisdom to share than you do?
