Welcome to the new ‘Running through menopause’ website and blog. If you’ve found your way here, the chances are that you are a runner, or would like to become one, and that you are either going through menopause or are expecting to very soon. Whichever you are, you’re very welcome, and you are not alone. With the numbers of people taking up running increasing significantly over recent years, the number of women who are running through what can be one of the most challenging times of life has increased too. Whilst some women sail through the transition with little or no impact on their running (or life), for many it is a time of frustration. Body shapes change, energy levels can plummet, injury potential increases, and it’s easy to feel like giving up. But with better understanding of how your body works, some tweaks to how you train and run, it’s possible not only to keep going, but also to keep improving if that it what you want to do. In this blog I’ll be sharing some of the strategies I use to keep myself, and my clients, running well, in the hope that they may help you too.
