RE: A good coach should NEVER tell a runner to "slow down" during practice

Sorry left out the word coach.
Not only is the o.p. not wrong, but he is also not incorrect. A coach is just there for advise and nothing more. Do what your legs feel is right. Toodles

See this is the problem with coaches. They don’t know how to “Coach” proper running. They let kids run paces in workouts that have no correlation to what they should actually be running.

If you really know what your doing you know what your looking for in terms of effort, stride pattern, and breathing all within the constraints of certain splits they should be around. Not “ oh you feel good so let’s see how fast you can go today.”
