————–Hormones and Training—————
Follicular Phase – Days 1-7
Yup- running might not feel amazing today. But guess what? When we test this again you most likely WON’T be on your period.
Set yourself up for success. Run in the morning or evening so it’s not exceptionally hot. Have a snack while you’re doing your gymnastics so you have something in your system.
And then focus on the OUTCOME of the run- how proud you feel after you crush it.
Follicular Phase- Days 8-14
Let’s freaking go. You had two days off, its the start of another cycle, and your hormones are ready to participate in helping you slay the week.
Luteal Phase – Days 15-21
Remember by the time you’re thirsty you’re already dehydrated. During luteal phase things are complicated by hormones. So drink as a rule no matter what.
And be excited- you’re fat adapted during this phase of hormones, so a 3 mile run you’re going to be very efficient!
Luteal Phase- Days 22-28
Carbs, hydration, and don’t worry if you’re not feeling it- give what you’ve got, and remember that this is baseline- how you perform this week is how you can be confident no matter what you can ALWAYS perform.
