12 year old sprinter too scared to run after achilles strain

this is a very one sided account.  The op in both posts is fishing for...yes dad is overtraining him comments.   Truth is ask the lad and speak to his coach.  

What dad wants is irrelevant particularly as neither you or dad has any background in track.

no point having a coach and not listening to him.

Running vs giving in to Body Dysmorphic Disorder

Runners face as you quoted it, is a load of bollocks.   I know some people say runners have thinner looking faces and bodies but thats due to being in shape thanks to the training.  What's wrong about being in shape?

Great work on the PB SS

lots of good training going on by all, particularly Dachs, simon and SS stood out.

tuesday was a 2*3*1k off 90 secs and 5 mins between the sets.  Target was 3 to 3.04 mins reps but that proved beyond me as I felt very leggy and started to fade at the end of most reps.  Averaged 3.08.  Wasn't overly happy with them but I know I will improve with a few more goes at it.

thursday was 10*400 off 60 secs target was 68/69.  They came out 66,68,68,68,68,68,69,69,68,67.   First rep went through 200 in 31 so slowed it down but still too fast.  Next 5 were controlled but the recovery started to bite but held together to end on target.  Happy with these. 

Rest day today 

hills tomorrow

Dq's at the relays are normally due to teams being short on numbers on the day and using a non registered runner or somebody doing 2 legs and getting caught.

Help me understand my lame DNF yesterday!

Suggest you find a sub 4 hr thread on here and take some advise. You fell in the mistake most runners starting out do...which is you run your long runs too fast. learn to do this and you will run faster on race days.   I get it doesn't make sense but think about everyone else wrong?

Ha ha, will tip you off next time I do 200s SG.   But I have to get them down to 27s if I'm to hit my targets This summer.  If it makes you feel better i was only 3rd in our group.  A couple of youngsters pushed them out faster. 

sg your 200s looked good to me, don't forget I'm chasing 800/1500 times whereas you probably won't go under 3000. So I have to push them harder.

Simon, we abandoned the 12 stage due to only having 10.   Good luck if you go.

Why am I not improving??

What was your time for an 800 last yr, and what is it now?  What ave pace do you do your 600, 400, 300 & 200 reps?

SS  yep, I'm in for christleton?  Are you in?  I bet rob will do it too?  Matt?

Overdone it?

DT - I'm a rest for a few days before a race type as well.  Always have been.  I can't see how a 3 mile jog can help the day before a race. I don't feel sluggish, in fact quite the opposite , I feel raring to go.  of course it's different for everyone.  I'm sure SGs approach works perfectly for him, likewise mine works for me.

Stevie see - i would tempted to have both days off.  One to recover from this week , the other to have fresh legs for the race.  great session there, love the last lap was just  targeted as FAST.

dachs, strong session.  Looks good that you are hitting target pace so early.

it was 10*200 target pace 29/30s off 200 jog rec.  

they came out 28, 29, 28, 29, 28, 29, 29, 29, 28, 28.  Felt comfortable for the first five but became harder.  Not flat out but happy at this pace this early in april.
