This girl is just an example. She runs 4:55/10:38 and does a 5 mile tempo at 6:05 pace. The next day, she does an “easy” 7 mile run at 6:40 pace? None of her runs that week were above 7 minute pace.
Not to call her out or anything, there are many other athletes (mostly girls) that are running oddly fast on supposedly “easy” runs.
My question is, can they really afford this type of training? I have PR’s faster than her and I would never dream of going faster than 7:15 pace for an easy run...is this why American high schoolers get burnt out so quickly?
