How can a woman adjust their trainning around her period?
What is your suggestions concerning trainning period and cycling performance?

Generally not a lot (if any) alterations to training need be made. It does come largely down to the individual and how much they are affected (if at all). For example if experiencing cramping this may not be the day for 2km repeats or that 250km mega ride.

Other considerations are ensuring diet is up to scratch, especially iron. The big issue is when the period does NOT occur - that then needs to be addressed quick.

Most women pro's I have worked with have used contraceptives to manipulate / avoid their periods to suit. As I understand it, this does not present a medical issue if used short term (months).

Everyone is different. My wife has no problems (usually). She can train almost as normal. My girlfriend is the opposite and every month it seems like the world is about to end... :cry:
