#HERMoJo - Menstruation be a SmartHER athlete with @eis2win

12:00 - SmartHER: Female Athlete Health @ the EIS

13:00

SmartHER: Female Athlete Health @ the English Institute of Sport is supported by WSNet's HerMoJo programme
 

Emma Ross and Richard Burden of the EIS Physiology team speak about the work they are doing around female athlete health to encourage athletes, coaches and support staff to open up the conversation and consider female physiology and psychology in training, recovery, nutrition and the coaching environment, in order to improve the health and performance outcomes for female athletes.

Work around your period - when you are training regularly be aware that exercise is good but the type and timing are important. You might want to track your cycle on a smart phone APP. This can help you plan training/diet and have a better understanding of what’s happening.

High oestrogen - rising levels of the hormone oestrogen in the first half of your cycle help energise you and can help you feel ready to train hard. As oestrogen levels increase, some experts suggest that this is good time to do strength and resistance training. Eating carbohydrates
and proteins are particularly important as these provide energy and help with recovery.

Second half of your cycle - as the hormone progesterone kicks in, and then towards the end of your period, levels of both progesterone and oestrogen fall. You might begin to feel a little sluggish. Some experts say this is the time to focus more on endurance and reduce the intensity of your training. Your body is thought to use fats more at this time to provide energy, so try and get some good healthy fats into your diet.

Sarah Williams' Tough Girl Podcast is all about motivating and inspiring women & girls. Sarah not only lives a Tough Girl life - she interviews other Tough Girls on her podcast.  These are women who have overcome physical or mental challenges that have pushed them to their limits. They share their journey and what they’ve learnt. They talk about their failures and their successes, they give advice, tips and encouragement.



'I’m incredibly lucky to interview a real mixture of women, from elite athletes who are training for the next Olympics, to Arctic explorers, cross channel swimmers, ultra endurance athletes and normal women who’ve done extra ordinary challenges. It’s about sharing stories, which will inspire and motivate.'
