Julia Neilson

julianeilson_cropped_resizedFavorite Sport:  Running

Major milestone: After 4 years of running, I have a half-marathon PR of 1:36:10, and a 10-K PR of 42:25. But I'm not done here!

What's the secret to your success? Consistency! And big dreams :-)

What is the biggest obstacle  and how do you get over it? When an injury hits, patience proves to be a virtue. Rest, sleep, good food, water, cross training, strength and core work and deep tissue massages help as well. 

What is the most rewarding part of your training? The joy of racing well.

What advice would you give to other members of the runcoach community?  Stick to your plan! Trust your plan but also listen to your body whilst keeping your long term goals in mind. It's better to go easy and rest than pushing those shin splints through a hard workout. Keep your easy days easy so you can run your hard days hard.
