Man I feel rough. I've had the old fresher's flu for nearly a week now (symptoms have been a mildly uncomfortable throat which got very bad yesterday, followed by icky nose and now a cough as well yay). To compound the problem, I have drunk practically nothing today so I feel dehydrated, and I just spent three hours in score wearing my race suit, which is basically a fireproof body fitting sleeping bag, barely able to hear myself think. Which has left me with the mother of all headaches. My own fault I know… Have attempted to rectify by taking on water and painkillers, hope it does the trick soon. And this cold had better go away by Saturday, I don't want it still when I go for my birthday present!
Conclusion: dehydration, heat and noise do not kill off colds
