Anyone get sick or catch a cold right after a race???
I felt the signs of a cold coming on last week and was able to fight it off. I then had a race yesterday and almost right when I got back home I started feeling sick. Sneezing, congestion and minor body aches/tiredness. The race went ok and didn't feel sick going into it. Is it possible that an intense effort like a race can compromise the immune system and help bring about getting a cold or the like??
