I'm interested in any performance tips that older women can offer. The other thread has lots on handling symptoms of peri- and mid-menopause: maybe this one could proceed on the basis that you're through it, and how to make the best of what you've got. What's worked for me has been --
getting a solid 8-9 hours of sleep a night (and solid means not drinking, so no waking up at 3:00)
sport-specific strength training (specifically overgearing on trainer, swimming w/ band, 15+ level on elliptical)
eating red meat
pretty basic and obvious. Maybe others have better ones?
