Club Races!

Week of April 21 – 27, 2014 – St. Anthony’s

Anxiety in the Swim!


Walking into a swim start, I have seen countless faces of fear on peoples faces, to the point that their goggles start filling up with tears and they start shaking. Suddenly the gun goes off and they are in the water. The start gasping for air and start doing breaststroke during the entire swim.

How to over come this common fear? Countless of times I have take athletes through worst circumstances during training so when race day arrives, there shouldn’t be any doubt on their performance.
