I’m type A (aren’t all runners?!), so I track a lot of things in my life. The amount of miles I run, the number of books I read and, for about a year now, my fertility.
Tracking my fertility along with my running has made me really interested in how my cycles affect my running performance. I have learned quite a lot about the menstrual cycle over the years and how that affects a woman’s body in general. In my perspective, here is why a woman would want to keep track of her cycle in order to train more effectively.
