In this special episode, we discuss the menopause with exercise physiologist Dr Stacy Sims and other special guests. You'll hear first hand from Kona qualifiers, ultra runners and outdoor lovers who talk openly about the impact the menopause has had on their life and their sport. Listen out for tips on diet, and training. If you are a coach and work with older female athletes, there's plenty of useful advice in the show too.
