How do I deal with my Dad?

Today I did a mile.It took me 11mins.48secs.I thought it was fast for me but,I told him and he said,"You took that long?!I can do one way faster."I was just like why did you have to say that?

Let's not rule out that he may just be a jerk, but it's possible he thought he was motivating you. If he says something like that again tell him it's not motivating and sounds like a put-down just to be mean.

Did he say it like he was trying to be mean? Or did he say it like he was kind of sarcastic?

You should practice everyday running that far until you beat him and then rub it in his face :)

He is your dad, respect him..He is trying to you egg you on to try harder and be the best you can...Be glad you have someone who cares enough to try to train you.
If you find it offensive, then in your best adult way, just tell dad you will try harder but you would appreciate it if he would cut you some slack. ..You will be fine.. He is just being a dad..

Ummm first of all, that's a better time than me and other people I know get after running a mile! Seriously don't even let that get to you. However, it is possible to improve your time if you are up for it and wanna make your dad proud. But like I said, don't be offended. Congrats. I think you did good :)

If I could I'd say fantastic dad!. Lets go out together and I can try and pace you and cut my time. I would try my hardest to get him to run with me. It would be good for him as well as me and we would have some real bonding time.
