A couple of weeks ago I started doing press-ups. Now I've gone from I-can-barely-do-five to I-can-mostly-do-ten, which is actually a lot of progress.
I feel like I've acquired a superpower. When Clark Kent walks around Metropolis, he thinks “if a supervillain came, I would be able to jump that building”. When I walk around the office, I think “if a drill sergeant came, I would be able to drop and give him twenty”.
Some superpowers are humbler than others.
