"Of all the emotions I have felt after injury, the one I'm having the most trouble dealing with is anger. I'm mad at myself, my coach, and at the medical professionals who I feel have failed me. I know some of this is justified. But I also feel trapped by it. What can I do to move forward?” This week, co-host and mental skills coach Carrie Jackson …
 
“I had the two black lines in my life, I had the black line that trailed the pages of my journal, and I had the black line that trails the bottom of a pool. And both gave me that place to be, that place to process, to grieve. I found the ability—with swimming specifically—to bridge my past to my present and lead me toward something in my future and…
 
"Could you discuss how injury shows up the fault-lines in your relationships? Injuries change the dynamics, and certainly my back-to-back injuries have made me feel less in control, less independent, and probably facing the relationship issues I was literally running away from." This week, co-host and mental skills coach Carrie Jackson answers a qu…
 
“People who have a growth mindset believe that success is possible through your effort and strategies. So if you encounter a setback, there is a solution, you just haven't figured it out yet. Part of that solution might be getting assistance from others. It's knowing that someone else out here has gone through this and has the answers and has the e…
 
Season 4, Episode 56 | Carrie Answers a Question: Ric’s Request How do I come to terms with or accept that I can no longer do exactly what I had hoped to do? I never let that dream go. After four years, I should but I can't. This week, co-host and mental skills coach Carrie Jackson answers a question from listener Ric J. Carrie gives Ric a great bi…
 
"It's not like I hurt myself because I wanted to hurt myself. It came from passion, it came from an athletic drive, it came from inspiration and dreams. I just wasn't an irresponsible athlete; I don't want to call myself that. I might have been an over-optimistic and over-passionate athlete, as opposed to calling yourself bad names. Once I made the…
 
There are days when I feel utterly hopeless and cry a lot. How do I keep it together? My doctor prescribed therapy and counseling, but there are no available spaces in my area. Besides yoga and meditation, what can I do to stay or return to positive? This week, co-host and mental skills coach Carrie Jackson answers a question from listener Sarah B.…
 
“Every day doesn't have to be perfect. But you still have to put in the work, and you still need to show up, and you still need to put that brick in. Because in my little brick house in Fort Collins, which I grew up in, all the bricks were there, even if they were cracked, and scratched. They were all there in their imperfection and they made this …

This week, co-host and mental skills coach Carrie Jackson answers a question from listener Carla F. She suggests Carla reset her goals and remember that her fitness will come back in time, once she allows herself the time and space to …
 
“All right, there are two options: You can get going and see what you can do with this life, or you can give up. And I said, option one's too easy, I don't like taking the easy road out. I'm going to see what I can do. I'm going to see the capabilities I have as a person that I've forged for myself over the last 18 years of training, doing sports, …
 
What I am struggling with the most right now is the paralyzing fear of re-injury. What else can you suggest for the person who has a debilitating fear of re-injury who has tried everything in Rebound and tends to outsmart themselves by overthinking everything? This week, co-host and mental skills coach Carrie Jackson answers a question from listene…
 
“I just wish I could go back and tell myself a year ago how great I'm feeling a year later ... to have that kind of foresight that it's going to get a lot better. I'm going to look back on this one day and think, wow, I won't even be able to believe that I was there at one point. I'm going to be feeling so much better, so much healthier, and so muc…
 
I'm struggling with which doctors to trust and how to get second opinions. I've seen at least six for the issue I am currently experiencing, which turned out to be a lot more complex than I imagined. So my question is, how much do you tell a new doctor about what previous doctors think? And how can you ensure that you get a proper diagnosis based o…
 
“So many of us seek out this idea that we want to feel confident all the time in whatever it is that we're doing—that if we feel confident, that means that we're never going to feel doubt. And that is just not true. That's why I like to talk about confidence as not something that you are, it's something that you do.” Fear, doubt, anxiety, worries a…
 
I have a high pain threshold. I've run through stress fractures and I'm currently rehabbing another one. How can I or should I learn better to be aware of pain in order to prevent injury? This week, co-host and mental skills coach Carrie Jackson answers a question from listener Jennifer H. The answer, Carrie says, is that tuning in to pain will ind…
 
“My visualization was imagining myself and my horse in a protective white light, and that we were protected over the jumps, the whole course. The next competition, I remember thinking, ‘I don't know if this is going to work, but we'll give it a try.’ We went in and that fear started to come up, I could feel it. I just closed my eyes for a minute an…
 
My question is about how to create habits to get the daily prehab/rehab exercises done. This is always my struggle - I never manage to keep it up super consistently and struggle to find ways to fit stuff in and do it every single day. (Currently I need to rehab an ankle, but I really need a daily foam rolling habit too.) This week, co-host and ment…
 
“It's all about respect ... I'm not going there looking to hurt someone, that's not my mindset. My mindset is to show them that I'm not afraid of anybody. In a race, if you come close to me, I'll do whatever it takes for me to win. I'm not going to just let you pass just because I'm afraid of you.” Jet ski racing has been Mouad Salhi’s passion from…
 
“I'm a distance trail runner, or used to be, and that was the main sport that I pursued and was my passion. And the doctors and therapists all say that it's not a matter of if I will be able to run again because they said I would be able to. However, if I continued at the pace or distances I was prior to the injury, I'm a likely if not definite can…
 
“My story is a miraculous recovery because I beat every expectation for what was going to happen. We believe we can share some of these guides to help others have a miraculous recovery from what they're going through. Because, as I say, a lot of my luck was created. You can create your own luck if you take the steps to build it, and climb an altern…
 
“A question I think a lot of us have is, when do you let go? That is, when do you realistically decide that the energy, physical, mental and emotional is not going to be rewarded and a change in goals—whether that's physical goals or life goals—is an order? In short, when do you stop beating your head against an immovable wall? This week, co-host a…
 
“There's this feeling when you feel like you could fly and when you're that fit, when you're that peaked. For me it was always being out in nature, being out on the trails, being connected with the land. And when you can't do that because you're in continual chronic pain—that was a travesty. That's the piece of me that is my soul and the reason I d…
 
“What's better, focusing on something different than sports and thus dealing with the feeling of losing contact to one's sport and one's team? Or on the flip side, rehabbing all day and substituting every former training session with a cross training session?” This week, co-host and mental skills coach Carrie Jackson answers a question from listene…

Wherever you are, stop for a moment and take stock of what’s on your mind. Then, look down at your feet. Ask yourself: Are your body and mind in the same place? Your physical being occupies space in the present moment. But often, our thoughts are a million miles away, fretting over the past or fearful of the future: Will I ever run again? What if I…
