This is an interesting thread, ive been stricken by one bug after another for the last 4 weeks and its perhapsd not a coincidence that this occured when I stepped my training intensity up.

Other than the VitC comments are there any other suppliments e.g. vitimin pills etc that I should take (Im training for FLM and Ironman in July).

When ive trained for Marathons b4 ive just took the one a day Sanatogen Gold multi-vitimins.

Advise would be really appreciated.

recovery periods and sleep are the best things

and as noted, you could try l-glutamine - i think it worked for me - i read about this during an extended period on the verge of overtraining (my rest pulse was up 10+ for a month), bought a tub of this from Holland & Barrett and I was back to normal after two days

use 20-30g a day, after training and with meals

Have just done 2 years of using echinea(?). One pill for first 10 days of each month. Had colds when everybody else had them but not bad & could still train. Stopped taking in August and had a a series of bugs over the Autumn including one losing 2 weeks of training & forcing me out of inter-counties X-country champs -my first representative vest - gutted. Have now restarted echinea.

Solgar mega VM75 Vits, garlic capsules, wash hands after being on public transport...in civic buildings etc, good rest, good food and correct clothing.
