The Na­tional Sprinter and 2016 Olympian tells us how she preps her­self to take on the SEA Games 2017.

1 THINK POS­I­TIVE

When train­ing for a big com­pe­ti­tion such as the SEA Games, I re­lax by think­ing pos­i­tively. There’s no point fret­ting about things that I can’t change, so I spend my time fo­cus­ing on train­ing well in­stead. This will also al­low me to fix my form and im­prove my tech­nique lead­ing up to the big day.

2 BREATHE RIGHT

I over­come any pre-per­for­mance jit­ters by do­ing breath­ing ex­er­cises or lis­ten­ing to mu­sic. I have a mo­ti­vat­ing playlist that al­ways puts me in the right frame of mind.

3 TAKE NOTE

I have a train­ing book that I keep with me ev­ery time I’m about to train for a new chal­lenge. I’ll make notes from the first day of my train­ing to the last. I’ll jot down notes of my best time to how I feel that day, and so on. It re­ally helps me keep track of how I’m im­prov­ing and how I can keep on im­prov­ing.
