Race Days are always anxious. In high school, I would try to come up with a race plan, and most of the time, it never worked. In my junior year, I just told myself to compete, and that is when I began to figure it out. The 1980 Olympic 800m champ Steve Ovett, during an interview noted that he no longer planned race tactics, he wanted to stay open to the vagaries of the race.
What works for you?
