#2 Setbacks, Yoga & Working with Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill ft Lina Nielsen

theathleteplace

Today we talk to GB 400m hurdler, Lina Nielsen, about the importance of “doing things that revive the soul”, having distractions from sport, dealing with an early-career stress fracture, and how the recovery process from that injury led to her pursuing a career as a yoga teacher working with Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill!

We discuss how important the social aspect of sport can be and how that can sometimes be lost at elite level, along with the sometimes-hard lessons learnt during U20s and how they have turned into valuable life lessons.

Lina admits that training was not exactly optimal during lockdown 1:0 but that her performance at the re-scheduled British Championships at the end of the season, made her realise that with a good training block behind her, the times will come. She describes how this confidence boost and a more chilled approach, has improved her drive and motivation during lockdown 2:0.
