I know this is wierd but whatever, I run track and I'm pretty good, but when I'm at meets I am a nervous wreck! I freak out and it feel likes I'm having a heartattack! I love it though, and this is the only sport that makes me feel that way. What should I do?
sounds like you're developing some shyness or anxiety wehen it comes to competition. sometimes I get like that when it comes to important soccer games. I feel like I have to "perform" for the audience and it's can get to be a lot of pressure. don't worry abou twhat others think of you. just focus on you. even if you are to trip and fall during your run, you will still be respected for getting up and crossing the finish line...even in last place. so, don't worry about how you perform. give it your best.
you just need to stay mello. stay calm. I run track to. I run the 3200 and I freak sumtime to but to calm myself down I start singin one of my favorite songs in my head and that way I have nuthen to freak about.
