I always seem to get sick a few weeks into a new routine. I started on sprint tri base low volume 3 weeks ago and am out of action this weekend with a cold. It always seems to happen when I knuckle down. I’m also dieting but I feel like with a low volume plan I should be able to handle it. I really want to lose some weight alongside my training. It’s not like I’m new to training or anything. I’m just starting a structured programme again as 6 month old baby made it difficult but I’ve been training for they last few months, and am coming from a few years of Tri training.
The only time it didn’t happen was when I had a coach.
My question is basically why this is happening and what I should do next!?
