Before my surgery, I stocked up on a few new books to keep me occupied during the recovery down time. Naturally, I chose books related to sport because if I can't be out engaging in it, why not read about it?? One book that particularly intrigued my interest was Deena Kastor’s memoir, Let Your Mind Run. Not only did this make for an exciting read (learning more about Deena's running career), it was also exactly what I needed in terms of a positive mental boost. When it comes to coping with an injury or setback, maintaining a positive outlook takes intentional work. Going into surgery, I was thankful to be moving forward, yet also dreading the inevitable downtime and feeling defeated by the fact that this was my 3rd major setback in a year. Even before reading this book, I was seeking out ways to infuse positivity into the process.
