Default Regular exercise=less illness?

Have any of you noticed since adopting a regular exercise routine that you are less suspectible to illness - i.e. - colds, viruses, etc.?

I used to get sinus infections all the time, seriously. They would linger for sometimes 6-8 weeks at a clip. Since I started working out vigorously the last few months, I've had not even a sniffle. I know it's summertime but I used to get sinus infections any time of the year - it didn't matter.

What about the rest of you?
40-ish and feeling fine.

I tend to agree, seem to be super healthy, the one cold i did get over the last two years i barely noticed i even had it.

Round two !

I would have to agree as well. And running seems to be helping with my allergies as well. A LOT less sneezing! Yay for exercising!
If you can't fly, then run. If you can't run, then walk. If you can't walk, then crawl. But no matter what... just keep MOVING!

A cheer for every 5 lbs knocked off forever!!

Absolutely. When regularly exercising, as well as eating healthier foods, I get sick much less often!

I wish! Since starting to watch what I eat and exercise I've been sick A LOT! Most likely it's due to other external factors (lots of travel and my kid starting school) but I'm really tired of being sick.
