Have you ever sneezed a slightly wet one, and I don’t mean snots- or found yourself unable to control the frighteningly sudden and embarrassingly loud gas leak? It can be a sign of weakening of your pelvic floor.   

Besides these obvious nuisance issues, left untreated, a weakened pelvic floor  can lead to postural malalignment and pulled muscles. Plainly speaking, you can injure yourself mid laugh and find yourself with your back out and wet all at the same time, stuck bent forward in that hilarious and together tragic moment, for hours.

Partly associated with aging, menopause, child birth, pregnancy, and deconditioning, it is *very* common among athletes -especially cross fitters who strain a lot during intense workouts and runners!

I’ll never forget running a race and having a friend running by me as my trainer to get me to go faster. I wanted to stop and punch him I was pushing so hard, angry he was calling me slow when I was feeling like and Olympian. (It was my fastest ever tim...

If you are here reading because you want to find something groundbreaking, just stop reading here. This blog is really a self-check that also lets you know you are not alone.  If you take just 1 thing away from this article it’s that we are our own worst barriers to success. None of these obstacles is unique though I offer plenty of tips. Just know, that super fit runner on the street you pass in your car? They experience these too. Here’s some of what they do to overcome them.

  1. I don’t have time. We are busier than ever yet we spend more and more time online. Check your screen time. Schedule your workout in.  Combine your TV time with a workout, cut back on dead time online with a timer and stick to it. There is a way.

  2. I don’t feel like it. The truth is that we are wired to take the path of least resistance. If you wait to “feel like it” it will never happen so work on the internal dialogue- mind over matter. Confession: I often don’t feel like it.

  3. I’m hungry. Ensurin...
