1 You have to be consistent. Just like you can’t only do a long run and expect to finish a race well, you can’t focus on your diet just a few days of the week.
2 One bad run doesn’t ruin your training, and one bad meal (or day of bad eating) doesn’t derail your weight-loss quest. Lace back up and get out there.
3 Get to the starting line by setting small goals, like running for half a kilometre beyond your current limit, or choosing a muesli bar instead of a chocolate bar.
4 There are days you don’t want to run and days you want to raid the biscuit cupboard. Tell yourself you’ll just go three kilometres; chances are you’ll pass up the biscuits.
