Here is a copy of a post I just made on my squash team’s site. I think this is “seasonally relevant” for squash players around the world!
What is the point in training 2.5 hours a day, for 19 weeks, only to miss the most important matches of the year because you did not take the time to adequately protect yourself? Why risk getting the flu and passing it on to your teamates? Inadequate attention to lifestyle factors (alcohol, sleep, time management, nutrition, AND flu shots), has the same negative effect on performance as not showing up for practice – in other words lifestyle management is an important aspect of COMMITMENT to the squash team.
“A flu vaccine clinic will be held on Tuesday, October 16, from 3-6 p.m. at the Campus Center Carroll Room. Only current employees and students are eligible to receive the flu vaccine. Please wear appropriate clothing, i.e. short sleeves. No appointment is necessary and the cost is $15 (cash and checks are accepted). ”
Here is flu info for athletes from the English Institute for Sport (EIS).
