Today we interviewed Besty about the pelvic floor. It’s amazing how so many of us know so very little about this muscle group. EVERYBODY has a pelvic floor, so you don’t want to miss the chance to learn more about this important muscle group!
They say that ignorance is bliss, but ignorance is a MISS. Knowing more about our body’s function and how muscle groups respond can help us to become better runners. Thanks to Betsy for sharing with all of us so we can better understand and evaluate our needs as runners.
