Overview

Written by a leading mental skills coach and a contributing editor to Runner's World, this is a practical guide to building the mental skills athletes need to recover from injury and rebound stronger.

Weaving together personal narratives from athletes, scientific research, and the specialized clinical expertise of mental skills coach Carrie Jackson Cheadle, Rebound contains more than 45 Mental Skills and Drills athletes can use at every phase of their recovery process. These same strategies can help athletes who aren't currently injured reduce their vulnerability to injury and enable any individual to reach new heights within their sport and beyond.

Injuries affect every athlete, from the elite Olympian to the weekend racer. In the moment, a traumatic crash, a torn muscle, or a stress fracture can feel like the most devastating event possible. While some athletes are destroyed by the experience, others emerge from their recovery better, stronger, and more confident than ever.

Not everyone can recover swiftly enough to notch a winning performance in two weeks, of course. However, anyone can toward a swifter, stronger comeback using mental skills, psychological tools that enable them to take control of their recovery and ultimately use the experience to their advantage. Injury and other setbacks are inevitable—but with training, you can learn to overcome them skillfully and confidently, the same way point guards and forwards practice rebounds.
