When I whine about being injured again, my chiropractor reminds me – active people get injured. It is better to be active and deal with a little ache than to sit on the couch all day. I also tell myself that an injury is my body's way of telling me that something is off or that it is time to lay off a certain method of training.
Listen to your body, follow its lead and with time and care, you'll be back in the game in just a few weeks.
