I don't know if it applies to your circumstances but on the chance it does, in my experience the anxiety makes it harder to begin something than to do it once begun. We don't need to force ourselves to run a 10K or ride 20 miles, which may look insurmountable. But to just get out the door, when you can always turn around and go back if you decide, is sometimes easier to think of it that way. So what if you only run 1K, or ride 1 mile, it's a step and having done it once you know you can again, which makes it easier. FWIW.
