What helps me with my wind and leg endurance is what is called knee bends in the martial arts world and bike riding. Bike riding is self explanatory. Just push yourself harder and longer and faster. Eventually it will be easy. Knee bends is simply standing with your legs about shoulder width apart and bend your knees in a squat position so that your butt is about even with your knees or lower if you're so inclined. Hold it for a minute, rest 5, do it again for a minute. When a minute is easy do 2, then 3, etc. I've gotten to where I can hold it for 5. This really works to keep your legs strong over time in my experience. You could also swim often. That's good training for anyone, go for endurance more than speed. Steady laps and keep them going more and more.

As for getting confidence after injury that just takes time. I've never seen an easy or quick way. You just go out and work that part a bit at a time. Eventually you won't think about it I guess. Good Luck
