At this time last year, the year before, and for about eight consecutive years since then, I've had severe allergies. I mean so bad that I could hardly breathe on my bike. This year I've yet to have anything more severe than the sniffles. What's going on?
My theory is I'm fitter and have a better immune system. I also find that my canker sores haven't given me problems since I started training in July '05. If I bite my lip, it's bad for a day, not a week like before. I find I don't have the histamine response when I drink alcohol like I used to. I just feel awesome all around.
I hope I'm right. Is there any truth to what I'm saying? I talked to my doctor about the canker sores and he said maybe, there's no real research on canker sores but since I'm feeling good I should just keep doing it.
