    turn around and hightail it straight outta there

    Problem was, every time I turned up at gym for real,
    just one whiff of the wood and chalk and sweat sent a cold
    sense of dread right through me.
    Maybe today is the day when
    something will go wrong.
    It took all of my inner strength not

    to turn around and hightail it
    straight outta there.

    can you explain me this sentence with a basic english, please??

    not to turn around and hightail it straight outta there.
