What is it about?
Calls have been made to analyse more fully and deeply the sensory dimension of the lived sporting body, including via phenomenological perspectives. This article contributes to this developing literature by bringing to bear insights derived from phenomenology - on two distinct sports / physical cultures: distance running and scuba diving. Here we focus upon the sense of touch, and specifically upon heat and pressure as two key structures of haptic lived experience.
