RE: new coach crushing my kid
I don't blame you for worrying, if the coach is giving obnoxious workouts. This is your child, and she obviously cares about the sport if she has run those times. I wish you'd give us a week of training, to give us an idea if it is crazy, ridiculous. As for all the posters blaming it on puberty... stop it! Yes, that does happen, but it's not the only reason why a female slows down. I could run similar times to this girl, when I was in high school. I went through I bad patch my junior year. I went through the whole xc season running slower and more labored than the previous track season. A few of the other girls on the team thrived off the workouts, but I needed more recovery between workouts and a slightly different emphasis. It was very difficult, but I talked with my coach about my concerns. Luckily, I had a coach who cared, and recognized that I seemed to need more time between hard efforts. Hopefully your daughter has a good relationship with the coach. If so, she should go talk to him.
