You're Injured, Now What?

You're Injured, Now What?

If like me you are used to living an active lifestyle which regularly includes mountain biking, running, walking, CrossFit, climbing and much more then an injury can be a really tough time. In fact, it could be one of the most difficult things you go through both physically and mentally. 

This handbook has been created after a personal injury battle. I (Davi) suffered a laundry list of injuries after a recent mountain bike crash and I was overwhelmed at how many people contacted me to say they were going through something similar or had done in the past. I consider myself very lucky that due to The HKT Podcast's fan base I am often contacted by hundreds of people offering supporting. I appreciate that for many people this isn't a reality and an injury can be a very lonely and alienating time if there's not a support network around you.

From the hundreds of messages I learnt that it's often hard to know what to do to get healthy again, how motivation can be hard to find and unfortunately depression, loneliness and anxiety can set in. I also learnt that there aren't any tangible resources to really help you keep a track on your progress, write down goals and provide a source for inspiration. 

The Injury Defiance Handbook contains 150 challenges and is broken down into 3 categories to help you stay physically fit, mentally stimulated, push yourself gradually and plenty of time to rest and recover:- 

  • 50 Short Term Goals

  • 50 Medium Term Goals

  • 50 Long Term Goals

I also learned that there aren't many places to turn to for advice when it comes to dealing with injuries. That's why I have set up The Injured Riders Support Group, a Facebook group to share your story, ask for advice and help other people who are currently injured.
