Things that make you go "Huh!"

I just read this post over at Oh She Glows, and this part struck me: Did you know that intense workouts suppress immune system function? That is often why people get sick when they are over-doing it with cardio or shortly following an intense race. Because the body is working so hard to repair itself, immune function is not at its’ best!

All of a sudden my being ridiculously sick makes sense. I had pretty much recovered by the time Saturday came. But five hours of dancing pretty much equates to a marathon in my life. It burns more calories than a 10km run, anyways. So my immune system took a nose dive, and hear I sit, sick and coughing.

Wild.

Thanks for listening,

Dee

.... See and it's things like this... All I can think is isn't this common knowledge? Clearly it isn't... so where did I acquire it from?

Yep, totally reinforces my theory that exercise is bad for you ;)
