Two weeks ago, we asked you what kind of super-powers you would like Murph the Fitness Wizard to grant you. The results are in!
Nearly 50% want Murph to grant them super-human endurance – and we had a tie for second place between super-human flexibility and super-human speed. Not a single vote for super-human strength.
In the write-in category: one vote for equilibrium, and another for super-human motivation!
And great food for thought from some selected comments:
Melanie: It’s human nature to want most what we do not have. As a duathlete, I have the mental and physical endurance of the Energizer bunny on no-doze. What I dream of is the fast-twitch fiber of a 100-meter specialist and workouts that are done in 30 minutes.
Lindy: I have often said that I live my life in the emphatic. I really love something, or I really hate something. Living with undiagnosed narcolepsy for the past 16 years really influenced that because I was at my best when I was moving and when I sat down even for a moment, I crashed. Most people saw me when I was super charged up and my family and friends experienced me at my worst, when I was struggling to stay awake. All of the given choices at the expense of the others is too extreme. I know – I live it.
Debbie: Super-human motivation to stick with an exercise program (because without it, none of the other powers will get used).
Michelle: I would wish for endurance because even if I wasn’t the fastest or the strongest, I could outlast everyone else. “The victory is not always to the swift”, right?
