Shamelessly seeking more expertise...here we go!
So I have had a rough year for illness. I had walking pneumonia in August and took two months off. I trained for a month and got H1N1, missed two weeks. Had a cold over Christmas, missed three days. Got sick Monday again...feeling better, but need to make it stop!
We eat a high plane of nutrition, mostly organic, broad mix of veggies, primarily chicken and pork as a protein source (fish allergy), whole grain carbs, 2l of water minimum a day, drink decaf coffee (but likely too much and don't really want to cut back) and get 7-8h sleep for the most part. I am 36yo female, I train from 12-16h a week having built up from November at a reasonable overload. Resting heart rate is normal for me, weight is stable and performance is solid, so not thinking over training. I teach elementary school so I am exposed to way too much snot. I am thinking that a multivitamin may help to boost me a bit and give me either protection or a shorter illness. What does everyone use as a multi, what should I look for in one?
Thanks in advance!
