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.

I want to start something new, I got the idea from my boy Krenny. I want to get on Sunday and put down some goals that I have for the upcoming week. So here goes nothing..

Monday: I want to hit my 4Xmile repeats on. I want the first to be a tiny bit slower and I want to get faster each time. 

Tuesday: 1600 time trial: I want to PR and run a 4:23. I'm in shape just got to prove it. I know I can.

Wednesday: hit my tempo right on pace and do it for the whole time, I don't want to slow down. Also I want to finish super strong.

Thursday: I want hit all 13 200's right around the same time. I want them all strong.

Friday: take it easy and relax (:

Saturday: I want to get 2.85 in my 15 minute tempo. It will be tough but I got it.

AM: 3 easy with the guys, felt super good.

PM: 8 miles. 4Xmile repeats. Goal time 5:03. Refer to Sunday goal to see what I had in mind. Started off by warming up 1.5 and then got right into it. I was solo today, Byron had stuff going so it was just me and the track. First one was tough just because I had to get the speed rolling and hit my time which I did, 5:03. 2nd and 3rd felt about the same and it felt really good I really used some good mental work on the third and it paid off. 2nd was a 5:02, 3rd was a 5:00. The last one was tough but I knew I could go sub five if I just gave it a solid push, 4:58. Solid workout, so pleased with it! Excited for the time trial, can't wait to eat up the track.

AM: 3 easy, just the usual.

PM: 1600 time trial. Goal: 4:23. Time: 4:31. After the 2 mile warm I just wasn't quite ready and it cost me in the first two laps. I got behind Byron quite a ways and I knew I should've been with him so the 3rd and 4th lap were all about closing the gap and trying to get the best time I could. That last 400 was hard but man that last 200 killed. Not a bad time for this early just frustrated because I wanted a lil better. Oh well, onward and upward to better things. 2 mile cool down and then striders to finish.

AM: 3 easy however my legs were tight and definitely feeling the 1600 race.

PM: 10 miles. AT tempo. Goal Pace: 5:27-32. 40 minutes. Warned up 2 miles and got right into it on our tempo loop, the more and more we do this the more I realize that the mind is very powerful. The first loop was right on pace, felt comfortable and relaxed. The 2nd and 3rd Laos were a lil slow but it was still a hard uncomfortable push. 4th lap took a lot of mental strength and by the end of it my legs were dead. Super good but hard workout. 7 miles in the tempo. Pace: 5:42. Cooled to mileage.

AM: 6 miles. LT tempo. Goal Pace: 5:02-07. Mr. PVHS 5K. For: Carter Nelson! Such a cutie. Warmed up just over 1.5 and then waited for the race to begin, waited awhile actually. The race started and just got right into it, had a struggle to get going initially but after the first loop I was feeling great and relaxed. I finished with a 15:58 which is a 30 second PR. Pretty sweet! I was super stoked when I saw my time. This makes up for my time trial! Pace: 5:08 so I was right in there with pace too. Great run/race! Cooled to mileage.

Wrap-up of Week- the only frustration of the week for my goals was that silly 1600 but after today's stuff I think I can just leave that in the past! Running is so awesome! Love it.
