Chatting with Laviai Neilsen
While we had the incredibly lovely & talented Laviai with us in the studio, we put some quickfire questions to her. Watch the 2 minute interview here.
Q. What does your ultimate pre or post training meal look like?
"ummm It would be, probably... I love salmon, so anything with salmon, rice and veggies"
Q. What one food or ingredient do you always have in your fridge?
"Bananas... I always carry one with me and I don't want it to be too warm"
Q. Do you have any tips to stay calm before a race?
"So one time someone told me that if you take 10 deep breaths, then your mind decides which path it should take... so I just take 10 deep breaths, and then my mind will say 'yeah you're ready... you're gonna smash this'"
Q. What is your indulgent cheat day meal?
"red wine [laughs]... I love it"
Q. Smoothies or Juices?
