Subject: RE: Top D2 runner Sarah Porter runs 130 miles a week
runner40 wrote: building mileage the wrong way, 130/week ok does her coach know what progression is, where does she go from here 150/160/week, I highly doubt she will develop into a National class runner let alone an elite, it's too bad because she definitely has the drive which will is a great asset but someone needs to pull her back, no need for that type of volume at her level/age, Kara G. and Deena K. didn't even come close to that volume at her age/level, and don't give me this BS about talent and everyone is different, the internet and Lets's Run have been great for running but unforturnately the obsession with mileage being the be all to end all has brainwashed quite of few young runners, progression in mileage takes years not months
hopefully she is counting her volume using km's or her mileage is embellished
You're right, this clearly isn't working for her (as evidenced by her slow times!). You've got so much wonderful advice for the world- how many pro athletes are you coaching? I bet it's a lot!Hit the submit button below if you want us to review the post.
