I have a few HS athletes who are going through a bit of a mental rut. They are training at a really high level, but can’t seem to put it together when the races come around. So I did a bit of research and found a few articles that I thought I’d share about how to relieve race-day anxiety.
Minimizing Race Day Anxiety
Here’s what I want to point out to them and I know that all runners can benefit from these pointers:
- Don’t stress about running
- Prepare the best you can
- Keep your mind positive
- At the end of the day, it’s only running
Read the articles about getting rid of race day anxiety and let me know what you think!
