The 3 peaks forum has a popular thread on it asking 'Anyone else got a cold?' Reading through my brother Phil's blog this morning his is one of those tales typical of some of the sufferers on the forum. I have trained with Phil just once this year (he lives 300 miles away!) but chatted endlessly about preparing for the 'Peaks, and one recurring thing is making sure you're well as well as strong. For Phil, the wheels have really come off the wagon in the last few weeks - and his summary of how the last few weeks have gone is depressing reading. Still - he'll be on the start line and making the best of it - as we all do. Good luck, Phil - I know you'll put everything into it come what may.
