Ok, you’re injured.

You are going out of your mind with frustration and disappointment.

Everything is rubbish, poor sleep, bad mood, snapping at people, no stress relief, getting unfit…

First few thoughts when injury strikes:

‘this might get better by itself if I just keep training’

‘I don’t want to stop training’

‘what happens if it doesn’t get better’

‘why does this stuff always happen to me’ etc etc

So how do you stop these negative unhelpful thoughts, which are leading to procrastination and disappointment?

Let's look at Darren Campbell (100 & 200m sprinter GB). On his first Olympics (Atlanta 1996), he dropped the baton in the relay and in Athens 2004 he pulled his hamstring in the 200m.

In a recent interview, he says, ‘it taught me about myself and adversity and the sacrifices you have to make. People were laughing at what I did, but you have to be strong. The decision I was left with was do I turn and run or do I show people I’m not a disgrace and Come Back Stronger’ (

He won gold in the 4x100m relay in Athens. The very race that had nearly ruined his running career 8 years earlier.

So what the hell does Come Back Stronger Mean?

It means coming back from:

  • Injury 
  • Rejection 
  • A poor training session
  • Illness
  • A poor performance 
  • A place where negativity rules all actions 
  • A place where "I can't" rules over "I can"

It means come back stronger mentally

It means come back stronger physically 

It means come back a stronger athlete

It means come back a stronger person 

It means, find out what you really want and put all your energy into getting it.
