Highschool Champ

Running Accomplishments:

2nd Year of XC (Senior Year). My best races thus far have come from Nike Regionals down in Pheonix (5K), the Dixie Invitational (800), and the Davis Invitational (1600). I took 8th place in the 1600 and 11th in the 800 at 3A State. Also at state we were in the slower heat of the Sprint Medley and ended up taking 3rd overall, that was pretty legit.

Junior Year:

Best 2.9: 16:36

Best 3 miler: 17:06

Best 5K: 16:28

Best 800: 1:59

Best 1600: 4:24

Half Marathon: 1:16.31 

Short-Term Running Goals:

TRACK GOALS FOR 2014:

Sub 4:20 in the 1600

4:15 in the 1600

Sub 9:50 in the 3200

9:30 in the 3200

PR in the 800

1:54 in 800

Long-Term Running Goals:

After high school and my mission I think that it would be really cool to get into the St. George Marathon. That is one thing I would like to accomplish in my lifetime. Hopefully I will be able to do multiple. In all I would just like to enjoy the time I run and have some fun experiences with it.

Russian champion tries Crocs, commits to racing a marathon in them

Nikolay Chavkin in the video below did 3x1000, first two in Adidas carbon-fiber models, the last one in Crocs. Surprised by the result (2:52, 2:52, 2:50) with the fastest interval done in Crocs, he committed to racing a marathon in Crocs if the video gets 42K likes and 195 comments (for 42 km 195 m, the marathon distance). Nikolay's current marathon PR is 2:14:00. The video was created by a Russian sporting goods store chain. Their moto is "more sports - brighter life", which we think is wonderful, and also deserves a Like. If you want to see a fast marathon in Crocs, go to the video and click the Like button. And make sure to share it with your friends.

Nice easy mileage, woke up early and ran with Skylar (little brother) he turned around after .5 and so I just used that as if it was my grass warm up and ran 3 miles after that. I felt really good, legs feel great. After the run I went and had to get some dunk ball in, Mike and I are unstopable.. Krenny on the other hand.. well we will just leave it at that. Wonderful Day!

3 miler. Got out a little later than I would've liked so it was warm. Ran a mile with Skylar and then he flipped around and I finished the run and a little faster pace. Legs were feeling good.

VO2 test today up on the dirt mile.. 15 minutes hard and I really wanted to push it so if I felt tired I would try to surge and give it a little push. My first mile was a 5:09. Second mile was a 5:23 and I didn't quite make it back around for a mile 3 time. My total mileage was 2 miles and 1327 meters. After a lap and a half I was alone and I really had to use some mental power to stick it in there to continue to push. I felt good even though it was super tiring. My calves were tight right after.. going to stretch them real good and roll. I'm excited for tomorrows workout.. going to be a great week!

We had our 30/30 workout based off our 6 mi9n vVO2 test the other day. I had to run 152 meters in 30 seconds which isn't too bad at all. We maxed out at 40 repeats... started getting tougher but I felt good!

Nothing like a desert run. 7 miles from green springs into the desert! It was a lot of fun running with the boys, love the long runs! It got hot by the end but it was an awesome run!

unable to run 4 miles today cause my alarm didn't go off when I set it and I worked from 7am to 1:30 am... horrible. I got one mile faster pace though running to a store and back so that was good!
