Learn To Navigate High School Running While Avoiding Burnout And Injury

A high school running career can be like crossing a metaphorical minefield. Injuries, health concerns, and lack of motivation are ready to pop up at any moment. 

The process can leaves coaches, parents, and clinicians wondering: 

  • How do we help young runners reach their full potential? 
  • How do we optimize training for peak performance without burning athletes out?  
  • How do we avoid potential problems with bone health, disordered eating, and mental health?

That’s why I made this guide.

My name is Nathan Carlson.

I'm a physical therapist and running coach. I’ve spent the last decade combing through the literature on high school running and had my boots in the trenches of high school training and racing.   

I’ve trained 50+ All-State Performers, high schoolers struggling with a laundry list of injuries, and athlete’s just trying to make the varsity squad. The truth is, they all deal with the same problems.

This guide combines the science and practical knowledge necessary for runners to enjoy a healthy, happy relationship with running while crushing PRs.

If you are a parent or athlete this is the base knowledge you want as you navigate this sport. If you’re a coach or clinician, it will help you appropriately screen and manage common pitfalls before they occur.

I also include a 14-week strength training and plyometric  plan that I've used with multiple state champions and collegiate All-Americans.
