Being injured is an athletes worst situation. It's easy to dwell in self pity and have a half hearted approach to often tedious rehab programmes.
Change your mindset.
Injuries can be an opportunity to work on your weaknesses. View it as an exciting challenge to come back better than you were before.
"My stress fracture hasn’t been textbook due to my bone health putting me at high risk of further fractures. It took 6 months to even start running. Even these few weeks back have not been smooth with another stress fracture scare. With the appropriate damage control and rest, thankfully this has settled. Another bump on this rocky road to recovery has made me reflect on my rehab process and think about any other weaknesses I need to address"
A wise coach once told me, you are only as strong as your weakest point. Injuries provide an opportunity to work on all your weakness. Forever the optimist, I have embraced this concept.
