#2 Don't get sick. Sometimes we forget that the flu throwing a wrench in your training is NOT an unavoidable part of winter. It's cold, your in-laws' kids are sneezing on you, and the news keeps saying this is the worst season in decades. I get it. But there are things you can do for your immune system besides wearing a medical mask at the Christmas party...


Eat your veggies. Getting your essential vitamins and minerals is important if you want your body to fight off sickness with ease. For example, what I do is every morning I roll out of bed and chug a shake with lemon juice, ginger, green tea and whatever fruit/veggie i feel like blending that day.
Skip the sugar and alcohol. Two of the worst things you can do for your white blood cell count.
Exercise and sleep consistently. You guys know this... no explanation needed.

Don't stress. Yes your attitude can actually makes getting sick more likely. Stress may seem out of your control, but I'm not suggesting that you somehow avoid all stressful situations. Just notice how you react to them, take a step back and ask whether worrying can actually fix anything. Don't let others own your mood, you own it!

Coach Joe, out.
