Junior high runners

Answered By Mick Grant & John Molvar

Question

How much is too much for a 13 year old 7th grade female runner on the junior high track team? the coach has them running 3to5 miles 5x a week and most of the kids can barely survive two laps around the track, i also see the coach put in the same kids week after week, running 2 meets a week in the mile and the 2 mile. He has a 4 event rule with a team of 70 kids, therefore some are running the mile, 2mile a leg of the 4x800 and the open 800, thats 4 MILES! If a kid shows talent it seems that this is their punishment. Reccomendations would be appreciated. thank you!
