so get your base fitness back before appraoching them. if you event is middle distance build up to about 30 miles a week, do fartlek instead of proper speedwork, don't expect too much too soon. if your injury is completely recovered, at your age you can look at being as fit as you used to be within about 6-8 months, so in time for next summer. use this winter well, remember you've got time on your side
hi, when i was a junior i was quite good but after my 1st year of uni i got a bit sidetracked, i was always running like 2-3 times a week at least, but i had other things to do.
then 2 years ago i decided to compete again, and i started training alone. i. too, felt embarassed about going back to my old coaches coz i didn't make much contact with them since, and have run in their club race unattached. i would still like to go back to the club some 6-7 years after leaving, but i don't know if i can commit to it, tho i can definitely commit to running.
i run almost daily, but i don't push myself. i just go for long runs and enjoy it, but get frustrated i cannot race the distances i used to do in faster times. so instead i do new events, longer ones and fell running
i would edvise you to get a good level of base fitness back and when you're ready for quality training go back to your coaches. coz it is so hard to do the quality stuff alone, especially at a high level
