I am a 100 meter sprinter. I train twice a day, 6 days per week. I also suffer from severe period pain. I do not let this interfere with my training schedule. I find if I take "naprogesic" tablets afew hours before training (always ready the label, don't overdo it) and try and fit some rest in ( if you work full time, even try and take a power nap in the car before you step out onto the track) you will find it easier to cope with training with your period pain. Also, ensure you have plenty of fluids to drink. Once you start running (even if you don't feel like it at first, which is the case most of the time) you will not notice the pain. Hope this helps.
