As I've gotten more active, and started planning for races and rides months ahead, I've definitely considered this issue: Athletic Performance and The Monthly Cycle. Interestingly, I've found that prior to my period, I often have a really great run or workout. I do live in pretty much constant fear, however, of being on my period during a century or a long run etc. But there's not much to do other than cross my fingers and prepare for whatever happens....Just another thing that makes professional female athletes so badass.
