Maybe it's simply time for an easy week? This was your biggest three-week block of training since roughly August 2009.
Yes, you are very right. Hopefully I can rescue it and make it an easy week as opposed to a nothing week!
I've gotten a sore throat on about the same day several years in a row. Obviously allergic to something as it never turned into a cold.
This is the start of the tree pollen time: oaks, maples are just bursting and waiting for little noses to infiltrate. Lyn usually gets sniffles around now. Try an antihistimine type thing if it gets too bad.
What Boris said. You may be doing less training, but what with slave-driver lab PIs, you may be getting less sleep than the past couple years? Just a guess, but sleep deprivation is also a stress, and training just adds to it... Hope you feel good soon, you've been having some great weeks of training!
Yes I have! And a couple of days off doesn't alter that. I am off to bed right now to try and rectify it!
