Pilates For Core Strength

As anyone who has experienced low back pain will tell you, it's something you worry about even after it’s gone. Low back pain is a chronic battle that can flare up from the smallest of movements, an easy household task, or just from stress!  When low back pain affects runners, it will sideline your training for weeks, even if the cause is unrelated to your running!

Back in the day, I was a fast runner. I have a distinct memory of going to Penn Relays as a junior, so excited to run the 4x400 (I was the anchor) and that morning I woke up with my period. At that point in my life I got my period every few months but most of my teammates hadn’t had their period in over a year! I wanted that. It was such a badge of honor and I was so embarrassed to be the only fast girl who got her period in season. Years later I learned that is called amenorrhea and that nothing about it is cool.
