Unfortunately, we're seeing a pattern that has been repeated umpteen times. In interviews, Katelyn always repeats the same line- "I knew that the other girls hadn't done anything like the workouts I've done." She appears to gain a great deal of confidence from 1) her apparently grueling workouts, and 2) her evident superiority over the rest of the field. This is not a great mindset to have. At her level, her coach should not be giving her workouts that push her so intensely. She should not feel challenged by her workouts at this point, since peaking too young is such a common problem. There was a workout of the week that featured her school from last fall, and she was doing 1k repeats at 3:20 pace. That's way too fast for a freshman girl, period. He shouldn't have let her do them any faster than 3:36 (18:00 5k pace). Also, she should NOT be trying to break records every single race. At her level, it would be much better to have fun with racing- tempo some races, try to run with the pack for the first 3 miles then demolish the last .1 to work on her kick, etc. She's gotta get used to running in the pack, since she won't always be able to outrun her competition so easily.
