The question all runners ask when we get injured is, "How soon before I can run again?" And long recovery times leave us chomping at the bit, to get back all the fitness we think we've lost. Rest is hard when you are a runner.
My guest this week specializes in helping athletes work through the mental stress that comes along with being injured. Carrie Jackson is a Mental Skills Training coach. She also helps athletes work on their mental game for peak performance.
She is a certified Mental Performance Consultant and author of the book On Top of Your Game: Mental Skills to Maximize your Athletic Performance. She is co-author of the book Rebound: Train Your Mind to Bounce Back Stronger from Sports Injuries. And she hosts a podcast called "The Injured Athletes Club Podcast."
