Interesting article about sickness and how it affect results

Ignoring the title and HRV focus/plug but I found the following statistics to be really interesting:

"They also found that most illnesses were associated with overtraining, and that 50% of illnesses occurred in the two months prior to competition when training loads and mileages are highest. "

“Each week of injury or illness resulted in a 26% reduction in the odds of achieving goals”



80% compliance to plan = 7x more likely to succeed at target event


Would be cool to see if TR would share their summary along with a cross-reference from a bunch of riders to see if there is a similarity.
