Subject: RE: My coach doesn't believe in thresholds and has us do only interval work. Is this normal for college?
The post about not trusting your coach is useless. Probably a failed coach himself that pulls workouts out of a hat.
But to answer your question: No it is not the typical way to train in college if you have a competent coach.
I had the experience (for better and worse) of having a few college coaches during my career. One of them who was very full of himself decided to neglect tempo and threshold work and our team made little to no progress during his remaining time at the university.
Even if you believe in it, you will make little progress if you are a 10k guy. It sounds to me like your coach has no idea what he is doing.
