How do you maintain a positive mindset during injury?
Maintaining a positive mindset during injury is complicated and I’ve only scratched the surface of how hard this could be. I dislocated my knee once and don’t want to imagine how bad it could have been if I was older. I was off the water for two months and it was a big reality check. Coming back, I trained super hard to build the muscles around the knee as I know that as I age and develop, I won’t be so immune to crashes. I stepped up my game and trained for every eventuality. I might not have lived the full injury experience, but I would focus on it, learn about it and believe you will be ok. It’s going to take a lot of hard work but never stop. Find the drive to do what you need.
