|Subject: ||RE: How to deal with depression caused from injury?***|
i've suffered through 2 stress fractures, one junior year of high school (out 4 1/2 months) and my other freshman year of college (3 months).
junior year i spent my time doing numerous cross training routines, and railing my girlfriend a ton. i was lifting a lot too, so i came in about 6 pounds heavier senior year XC than i was junior year XC. needless to say, i was slower and not as strong of a runner, plus my confidence was in the shi*ter. i put the season behind me, trained my ass over winter, and had an awesome track season in the spring.
my second SF in college i basically did a ton of ab workouts, and stationary bike workouts at the rec center. i did pick up dieting however, although when i was out drinking and eating jimmy johns on the weekends that didn't help too much. needless to say, i came home from college weighing about 10 pounds more than i do now, but after a summer full of dedicated training i made it back. while injured though it was nice to be busy with school work and have other things to do, otherwise you will go crazy.
