Linsey suffered a stress fracture of her femur and found the mental aspect of recovering from injury to be a challenge:
“I learned some good lessons from it but it was a frustrating year for me…just the emotional roller coaster. Anyone who has been injured knows that you wake up and you feel good and you’re like; good, I’m making progress and really hopeful, and the next day you wake up and you have some weird ache or pain and you’re over-reading into it and then the whole world is ending, and the next day you wake up and you’re hopeful again and it’s just this vicious horrible cycle.”
