Injury sucks. It's a short sentence that pretty much sums up the facts. Getting over an injury is physically and mentally demanding. There are several parts to consider including rest, exercise and diet. Rather than bore you to death with details of every possible scenario we have started a Pinterest board on Roller Derby Recovery. Feel free to add or suggest new Pins in the comments. When it comes to injury recovery most people don't give it long enough before they return to full practice schedules. Giving yourself just an extra week at low or no intensity could be the difference between full recovery or being that person that's walking around with an injury time bomb. As well as the Pin Boards we've embedded one of the most powerful recovery video's you will ever see (get some tissues ready it's a tear jerker) and you can download Frightmares two week Roller Derby Meal Plan.
Get Over It
There are lots of great resources on the web that can help you overcome injury. Dealing with the mental side of recovery is a huge element that anyone serious about getting better should not neglect. Janine Shepherd is the ultimate example of this. She was a serious gold medal contender for the '86 Winter Olympics and was hit by a truck whilst on a training cycle ride. Her amazing story is moving and inspiring to say the least.
