    I can so connect to this blog having Lung cancer sx over a year ago and being an avid cyclist and yogi. I think it is so important to honor your energy and at the same time take inspired action in getting “back in the game”. Quite often people can be at opposite extremes, either getting back to soon or staying “stuck” in I can’t do this it might hurt etc. So it is about honoring your energy and listening to your body and getting support and guidance on navigating through the steps.
    Thanks for your post!

    LeAnn – I love the comprehensive approach you’ve taken regarding this topic not only from the beginning phases but also related to the physical, mental and self-care related aspects as well. I wish I would have had this guide the last time I hurt my back. My recovery would likely have been much faster and without nearly as much mental angst. Thanks for this great roadmap to #getbackinthegame! Dave
