Discovering your Superpowers

Posted on

 

I discovered my super powers about 35-minutes into my first ever +5km run. I'd been running for what felt like hours, yet I wasn't tired, I wasn't even that sweaty or pink. If I hadn't been summoned for dinner, I'd probably have carried on forever. Clearly, I was superhuman.

 

Despite eventually discovering that I'm actually anything but super since that first run in fact I'm very average I cant help still feeling indestructible. I'm sure every runner does. We push our bodies through what sometimes feels like hell, challenge them to breaking point, yet we still survive.

 

If only you could bottle that invincible feeling. When you've finished your hardest, longest, fastest run to dateafter struggling and feeling like you'd never make it you come out the other end, somehow still alive. You feel like you could take on anything!

 

It's that feeling, Im sure, thats responsible for ridiculous race entries. The post-challenge rush is like Dutch courage for runners. Your brain might tell you that you can't but your body knows it absolutely can and guess which part is in control of clicking the mouse on the registerbutton.

 

"I didn't break this time, surely I wont break on the next!"

 

And it seems our sense of super is getting stronger. It's not enough to just run a marathon anymore, everyone runs marathons. It has to be an ultra-marathon but it's only a real ultra if there are huge mountains, dangerous animals and extreme weather, and you don't just walk to the start, you jump out of a plane first*!

 

It's incredible to think what the human body could do if you just allow your mind to push it. Quite often its that little voice that tells you its impossible, whilst your legs still have more to give. Im certainly excited** to see what mine's capable of.

** Actually, I'm terrified!

Love the Anti- VPL hispter. Very comfortable. Will definitely be ordering more in future.

Pretty and fits

As stated it’s not for high impact sports but great for example for climbing, yoga or cycling. The pink looks great under a black tank top. My normal bra size is 36b (german sizing) and M fits perfectly.

Finally no chafing

Finally I have found a sports bra that doesn’t chafe. Even in the hottest conditions and sweating, it does it’s job without causing the well known chafing-pain from other bras. Will definitely stock up on runderwear bras
