Video – Season 2 – Episode 11 — Mileage and Young Runners

running-advice-bugOur video series continues rolling along this week with an episode that goes out to the young runners, their parents and coaches this week. Coaches Joe and Dean are sitting on Runner’s Sofa talking about how much should high-school track and cross-country runners run.

On this week’s episode:
– How many miles should young runners be running?
– How many miles is enough to prepare for high-school and cross-country running events?
– Why should runners avoid running too many miles at a young age?
– How should parents and students deal with coaches that are assigning too many miles?


Coach Dean has a book on this subject called: Runners Take Your Mark: The Parents’ Guide to Youth Track and Field. If you’d like more information about the book, click here.
