Will I get pneumonia?!
Hi, this is my first posting on this forum, though hopefully not my last. I'm due to take part in Sunday's supersprint event at Eton, which will be my first-ever triathlon. I've done some training but am also recovering from a head cold. Without sounding ridiculously melodramatic, am I risking serious illness by swimming in chilly water so soon after being unwell? I hope not as I'm looking forward to Sunday and not planning to push myself too hard. Thanks in advance for your advice, though!
