In brief: Talk to your doctor.

Beta blockers are usually used for performance anxiety such as public speaking, etc.
Usually the doses given in these situations are low compared to those used to treat high blood pressure. Also, the doses shouldn't be too high if you are exercising, b/c your heart rate and BP will naturally go up when u exercise. Deep breathing, mindfulness ; self-talk might be better for anxiety during exercise.
