Coming into senior year I was pumped to continue my growth and really have a great season while I talked with a couple of D3 coaches. However, the first three races have all sucked and I’m as slow as I was sophomore year and well off my pr of 17:45 by almost 2 minutes. I followed my coaches summer training to the letter and I have no idea what to do. Im so pissed I didn’t deviate from his plan because now I don’t know if any of the D3 coaches I was talking to over the summer still want to look at me for next year. I thought about reaching out to the coaches individually and letting them know what is happening but I also don’t want to sound like I’m complaining and looking for excuses. I honestly think I followed the poor advice of my coach. I’m really upset about this, does anyone have any suggestions?
