RE: A good coach should NEVER tell a runner to "slow down" during practice
A good coach will educate their athletes and get the to buy into his system. A good coach will teach the purpose of each training stimulus and get the athlete to understand why they are running the different paces.
If your athlete is running too fast and you think you need to tell them tooflow down, you have not done your job and are therefore not a good coach. Athletes of good coaches will train correctly.
By the way, OP...the go with the flow philosophy you described is probably why you are only a 4:30 miler. Just sayin'.
