When it comes to running, there are certain hurdles you need to get over before you even make it out the door. Whether it's knowing what trainers to choose or whether you're anxious about the way you look, worrying whether you're a 'real' runner or not (you are!), or perhaps just having confidence in your legs for the mileage. In today's episode I've partnered with Sure, who have recently launched a new confidence campaign celebrating their new Sure Advanced Protection range and helping us get to the bottom of the confidence conundrum today is Chelsea professional footballer, and Sure ambassador, Fran Kirby. Having played in front of millions of spectators, she travelled to the world cup as the second youngest member of the lioness squad, a major high, and she's played a huge role in Chelsea successes since joining in 2015. But she's also not immune to setbacks and curveballs that life can throw at you. Like many runners who are forced to the sofa through injury, this year, Fran was side-lined from playing and training as a debilitating medical condition took hold of her body that had her asleep for up to 15 hours a day. We discuss everything from her experience of digging deep when the going got tough to how she avoided direct comparison with others when she was on enforced rest and what she does to feel confident, both in and out of her trainers. According to Sure, 66% of Brits wish they had more confidence and whilst most of us run for physical and mental health, there is also a lot to be said about the boost in self confidence that fitness can provide and given some time it's likely that these positive emotional boosts could spill over into other areas of your life. The new Sure Advanced Protection range expertly fights moisture for 72hrs making it 2x more powerful compared to the UK’s leading female antiperspirant* and specially formulated to create a barrier against sweat for that super-fresh feeling, even during movement, stressful moments, or in the heat – giving you added confidence, no matter what. It's time to plug yourself into this show and put yourself on a path to personal glory, whatever that might be. *Leading UK female antiperspirant is Sure Bright Bouquet, at time of writing (01.04.2020) based on Nielson unit sales, MAT See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
