Your coach is a ****. Leave it at that. Don't get so worked up about winning the guy's affection; he's just another human being. Your speed as a runner doesn't define your self worth and remember that you don't need to be coddled emotionally by a coach to develop into a good athlete. Just do the workouts like everyone else and say something if you feel like you aren't being challenged by practice/races. It's not like you will lose a scholarship if you are open with the guy.
His job is to produce fast runners and a competitive team. There is no rule that a coach has to be a 'teacher' or a parent-substitute. You sound like a freshman. Man up and get over it. Not everyone in life will give you the time and decency you deserve. Also, don't play the blame game. Your running depends on YOU and not your coach.
