The Bad Boy Running Podcast

Running is great, so why aren't the podcasts? Bad Boy Running is a podcast for runners (boys AND girls!) who are bored of the dull and dry podcasts currently on offer. Hosted by friends Jody Raynsford and David Hellard, both running journalists, bloggers and lovable idiots, the show features the conversations they'd have in the pub focusing as much on the camaraderie and social side of the sport as the technical.

“All women need to change their training plans.“

It’s a bold statement, but have you had training sessions that have just gone badly, where you’ve felt like crap and you can’t explain why or had weeks when you feel invincible?

It’s likely to be because of when you were in your menstruation cycle. David, Jody and Allie speak to Renee McGregor about how the hormones women produce at different times of their cycle directly affect performance, nutritional needs and even when you should race.

We find out why and how to create training plans to match your varying physiology so you can not only train smarter and banish the bad days but also use your cycle to your advantage.

This really is a must-listen for all female athletes and all men who want to break the taboo around talking about periods.
