This week’s podcast was recorded in front of a LIVE studio audience in Chicago with our special guest, Cindy Kuzma. Cindy’s new book, Rebound: Train Your Mind to Bounce Back Stronger from Sports Injuries, is the center of our chat and Cindy begins sharing why talking about the mental side of injury is such a relief for runners. Cindy shares some highlights from the book, including interviews with notable athletes like Amelia Boone and Kaitlin Goodman on how injury became an opportunity for improvement. They explore the idea of “recovery as your sport” and how to navigate and track what pain is OK or not OK. Finally, they end with some important takeaways on how to mentally manage your way through injury.
