+1 to that suggestion, Jane!
Turned 50 this year myself and also experiencing how all the old ‘rules’ don’t seem to apply anymore. It’s discouraging to discover the dearth of information there is–we are truly an overlooked constituency. That being said, I’ve been personally inspired and energized the last few months by the community emerging at Feisty Menopause. Their podcast (“Hit Play not Pause”) is legit and wide-ranging (first podcast featured Dr. Stacy Sims), they have a very active fb group and they just launched a new paid membership that gives you live access to people with specific expertise for peri- and post-menopausal athletes. (I’m not affliated in any way, just excited to feel like I finally have a means to try understand what’s going on w my body.)
If I had one critique it would be that the focus is more along the lines of triathalon and cycling and not uphill endeavors that are the focus here. The guests (not coaches) on the Uphill Athlete Podcast have all been guys so far–it would be great to hear interviews with female alpinists and ultrarunners in the 50+ group.
