On the "training diminishes immune system" thing.
I've noticed I get sick less and less severe ever since I started racing a few years ago. First hint of illness, cut hard riding and add 3 to 4 hours of sleep and it usually is warded off (although still last week I missed the signs, raced, and got a full fledged tho short lived cold). But it could just be that racing got me more in tune with how I was feeling and needing rest.

Still, I keep reading that immune system is compromised immediately following a hard workout.
