Have a look at the monthly kilometres table to the right. See a pattern? I don't know how to avoid this horrible cycle of two months solid training then one month dominated by two-three weeks of illness. I've been very careful this year not to increase training too quickly and to have rest weeks following big events. My nutrition has been good and I've been working on my sleep patterns. Stress levels have been high though due to PhD and land division issues, but there isn't much I can do about those things. The pattern is starting to look very strong. Just to back it up further, I was sick in December and September last year too and had pretty good running through October and November. Anyone got any ideas (besides not running)?
PS. Yay, 50 posts.
