RE: new coach crushing my kid
Wow some serious brutal posters out there, but also some solid advice.

Mr. helicopter post-When your kid goes from full scholarship times to walk on performances it is at a serious cost. It is not over-involved.

Mr. its all about me- I move where the government sends me. Most don't berate me for it but thank me for my service. I already feel like crap for moving her into this situation. Bummer I could not research the coach. I guess I just suck as a parent.

Doubters- Her 1500 and 800 times are outdoor track times, but its okay to question. it means you know your sh#t.

Crappy coaches- 4 times on the track is just lazy coaching. Maybe a coach or two will read this and wake up and mix up the work-outs and realize it's not normal or okay.

Decent folks-Yes the US system is a bit brutal, excellent suggestions on self-regulating, valid comments on too early to worry, but its after a dismal XC season with this coach, maybe it is puberty. Some nice insights once you get through the hacks.
