Run Happy, Run Better: Controlling your emotions is vital to training/racing success. @KaraGoucher shares some advice:

Interestingly, in this second study these was no difference in performance between the two time trials. However, there were physiological differences. Blood glucose levels were higher in the trial with false positive feedback, whereas oxygen consumption and blood lactate were higher in the trial with false negative feedback. Emotions were different too. The cyclists gave higher scores for anxiety, gloominess, sluggishness, downheartedness, and effort to regulate emotion and lower scores for happiness and calmness in the false negative time trial. These findings suggest that disappointing performance feedback caused the cyclists to feel negative emotions that in turn increased physiological strain. While the increased strain did not reduce performance in this particular study, it could have, and in all likelihood it did reduce performance in the prior study.
