You have to ask yourself why are you running a cool down.
As much as I like core work, I do not think it is helping bring oxygenated blood to the muscles you just worked.
Colorado runs a extended long run to make sure they flush out there legs
The problem is people see a cool down as some slogged miles. The first steps maybe, but the whole thing should not look like an 80 year old running. Don't get me wrong it's easy running, but make sure the athlete is using proper form.
For mid-distance runners after a fast session we would do an 800 of "in and outs" on the track between 1500-3000m pace on the in. It my sound hard after a workout, but it isn't the kids are very relaxed. This would start their proper cool down making sure we getting the affected result we wanted form cooling down.
