Hi, my "friend" (very strange term I agree) arrived today, and it is amazing how much easier I find runs as soon as my period starts. Must be the change in hormones, but it is such a marked difference it amazes me.

Hopefully, will be ok for FLM but may add tampax to list on cheering thread !.

take care

If I remember rightly, Paula Radcliffe was both "on the rag" when she managed her best marathon time in Chicago -- 2:17 or so. If it's any consolation....

So pleased that I thought to check this site for advice. Training for the FLM (first time), currently on the pill but have just missed a period for the first time ever - naturally thought I could be preggers but relieved since reading all your comments. Roll on 23rd April!!!

Great that I am not the only one! But rather than less frequent mine are just more unpredicatable - a full week early this month! I run like a bag of nails for a few days before and it always gets me down - probably a bit of pmt thrown in for good measure! I have run 2 marathons - both just a few days before I was due. Agree that flow isnt as bad as usual, its just that the legs dont want to move! I think we just have to accept that we are different, esp during training when an extra day off may be what your body needs (or a bar of chcolate).

On a positive note a gentle run definitely helps the mood as well as cramps.
