Hard intervals compromise the immune system because it goes to repair the muscular damage caused by exercise.

I've recently came down with 2 bugs after some not-so-hard intervals (but I am out of lower body shape), so IMO that's probably what's going on. You just need to build up slower and let your body adapt to the hard stress.
