Athletics Day - How to achieve your personal best in Athletics!

Your personal best, events like Cross country, Tests or maybe even getting up earlier than you did the day before. But today, Athletics is one main event that us Pt. Englander's achieved in our personal best!

In Athletics there are activities like Javelin, Shot put, Sprints, High Jump, Discus and etc. There are a lot of variety of events you could choose to do your best in, and you could possibly do outstanding in all but personally it's best to train for things you’re least good at it. Working your way up from least favorite events to the events you love the most. Not everything has to be perfect but you always need to try your best in events like these, to satisfy not only you but your family as well!

Another way to achieve your personal best is to always stay in track of your records, So you could obviously know what to work towards for the next event coming up. By keeping your records of the events you took place in, You could compare it to previous years and see if you improved or not. It's also good to keep in track of goals so you could accomplish that and your personal best, that’s a 2 in 1 winning goal. It’ll be easy to write down your record and underline all your goals/training's to see where you’re at.

Always stay calm whenever you’re in and out events, if you were to come last always end with a smile. It’s not always about the placing, it’s about how you did and felt. Not everyone will get what they want but if you simply train and focus on your goals you may have a better chance of coming 1st, 2nd or 3rd.

Well that’s my listing of how to achieve your personal best. Remember it doesn’t have to be Athletics or Cross country, It could simply be a test or grading. Never give up! Always continue on and strive to succeed.
