Know the realities about Create Fitness
And guess what? Just 2 months after Bannister ran a mile in 3 minutes and 59.4 seconds, Bannister and John Landy of Australia both ran sub-four-minute miles in the same race. And just 10 years after Bannister’s achievement, high school athlete Jim Ryun exceeded Bannister’s time as a junior by 0.4 seconds. As a high school student, Ryun ran a blistering mile in 3 minutes 55.3 seconds. Visit us on Create Fitness.
The beliefs of people have altered and their minds have shifted.
Your brain noticed that they had set their physical limits too low when they saw someone else run a mile in less than 4 minutes. But Mister Bannister can again be credited with perhaps the most important lesson in physical limits for personal values.
At the moment when the Englishman did the impossible, he knew very little as a runner. He served as a junior doctor, putting in all the requisite study hours required for the profession.
In his opinion, though, he had no physical limitations. Change your mind today, challenge yourself, refuse to fail, and see about what physical accomplishments you can achieve. What do people tell you that you can’t do? How do you respond? Do you react like John Locke from LOST and say, “Don’t tell me what I can’t do.”? Your mental mindset and wellbeing can help restrict what you place on the list of things you can’t do.
