Eventually we’re all going to have a physical setback. Whether it might be due to overtraining, a trip, a fall, an accident, a pregnancy, an unexpected surgery, you name it. And oftentimes the mental and emotional side of the experience can be far worse than the physical. Today, I’ll share my own personal physical setbacks — from how I felt at the time they happened to how I learned to deal with them — in order to help you better understand how to manage yours.
