The one thing you need when preparing for competition, is consistency in all areas of your life, not just in training, in everything you do until it becomes a mindset.

The problem is, everyone knows this already but it can be so hard sometimes to stick to it! Subconsciously there is usually something that keeps looping you back round to the same behaviour.
