|Subject: ||Any other college runners feel like they race every morning????|
So my college coach has the approach long slow distace makes long slow distance runners. Over the summer thats all i put in other than a couple quality sessions a week. Now i am forced to run "no slower than a min off race pace" meaning our 8k pace, for all morning runs ( anywhere from 7 - 13 miles ) Now a couple weeks into the season im really struggling keeping this pace every day, and i feel like im going to be too tired to ever race well. My coach is not flexible on this issue by the way. I was wondering if running damn near a tempo run every morning will show more results than easy running if he actually does taper us at the end of the season like he says he will? Do all colleges train like this? Any other thoughts.
