My son wants to do the Race the Train 5K in August. I have gradually got him so that he can do 2.3 miles without stopping, but he doesn't really have much confidence, and his progress is very slow. However much I cajole him he won't speed up at all, because he is worried about not making it home.
Any suggestions how I get him to speed up just a bit? Is it to do a few shorter but faster runs, so that he gets used to going a bit faster, or what? Suggestion please.
