RE: A good coach should NEVER tell a runner to "slow down" during practice
People who watch too many sports movies think that the job of a coach is to motivate and get kids hyped up to train/compete. The real job of a coach is to hold the reins.
I became a much better runner once I realized that 8X1000m at 3:10 meant "actually run them all in 3:10, dumbass," not "your job is to crush that goal time, so go out and run them all in 3 flat." The workout is for training. Save your racing for the race.
