Youth distances

By Jim Beneduci  |  Sep 11, 2008

Question

My 11 yr old son is participating in x-country intraumurals in middle school, 3 days a week. The kids run in occasional 5ks (3-4 in a school year). How much distance per week is reasonable for them to be running at this age? Regarding nutrition, what should he be eating prior and after a practice or race?
