Answered By Mick Grant & John Molvar

Question

Dear Sir, My daughter aged 8 will be running the 1200 m this coming season starting middle January 2012 ,could you please advise on a training program for us to follow.She absolutely loves running an is currently participating in cross country for girls aged 10 ,she has won all 3 races thus far!Your advise would be highly appreciated. Kind Regards

Answer

Age 8 is very young, so the primary focus is make sure everything is fun so she wants to go back and run again. Don't do too much. Keep the focus on fun, not racing.
