Subject: RE: Being the slowest runner on your team... anyone have any stories?
I was the slowest on my D1 team.
I called myself the wolf because anyone I was ahead of in workouts was sick or injured.
If I consistently beat them they dropped off the team.
When I ran repeats the caoch called out splits but not mine, he turned his back before I crossed the line.
I would argue that on your off days you run more miles than your competitors, but at an easy pace.
Also if you are racing your workouts you will get injured.
I only ran for two years, the third year I had lost too much ground.
I spent 4 months backpacking 25 miles a day in between sophmore and junior year.
However I went on to have a long career while most of the guys i ran with quit immediately upon graduating.
