Meet Our Podcast Guest:[Cycle Day 5 – Inner Winter] Carla Papac is an elite Ironwoman having competed in surf life saving for 16 years. She has represented Australia and recently boasts the title of Coolangatta Gold Champion, a gruelling 42km battle through the ocean. Carla followed her passion of sport, obtaining a bachelor of exercise physiology from the University of Sydney in 2021. Carla used to think losing her period was a proud symbol of an elite athlete. However, combining her experience as an elite athlete and exercise physiologist she dug deeper into the studies and found that she was under-fuelling her body and therefore her athletic performance. Now, she endeavours to educate women on the power of the Menstrual cycle and how it distinctly separates female athletes from males.
