Personal:

Attended Japanese high school and finished in March 2020. Was very lucky to be able to be a member of a very good team of runners at my high school, even though I was injured most of the time and was not able to be much of a contributor. Am currently doing an Engineering internship at a large manufacturer of Automotive transmissions, etc. It is really exciting. In spring of 2021, if COVID-19 has subsided, I am planning to serve an LDS mission, after which I plan to go to college and study Engineering.

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.

A little over a week ago my doctor told me I could start running again. I have been a little scared to start because I was afraid of the same thing happening to me again.

But today I finally got up enough courage to run again. It felt amazingly good and I was able to breathe easy with no problems at all.

I ran a half mile warm up.

Then I ran 2 miles at 7:00 min/mile pace. I took it easy because I don't want to push it too hard.

I finished up with a half mile cool down.

I have a CT scan this Friday. Hopefully it will show that the blood clots are gone.

I will be serving an LDS mission as soon as my doctor gives me the OK. Maybe I will write more about that later.

Anyway it is good to be running again.

Ran 3 miles.

Basically the same workout as yesterday. I think I will do this workout everyday this week just to get accustomed to running again.

Did a short warm up.

Ran 2 miles. (run just a little faster than yesterday)

Did a short cool down.

Yesterday I had to get some tests done at the hospital for a problem they found while I was in the hospital for the blood clots in my lungs. This problem is completely separate from the blood clots. While I was at the hospital I ran into my Doctor. He asked me if I had started running. I told him that I had just started and that it felt very good with no problems. He was very happy to hear that.

Felt a little muscle soreness from the last couple of days. I guess my body is jut not used to running yet. So I decided to just run 3 very easy miles today.

Did a short warm up run.

Ran 2 miles fairly hard today. Felt really good to run hard. Probably the first time this year that I have really been able to run hard.

Ended with a short cool down run.

I am headed to the hospital this morning for a CT scan of my lungs. It seems like I almost live at the hospital. Today will be the fourth time this week that I have had to go to the hospital.

I ran 5 easy miles today.

This is the first complete week of running I have done since the beginning of the year I think.

I am feeling good and hope I continue to regain my fitness.

PS: Is it just me, or is the comments section of the blog down for some reason.

Ran an easy warm up.

Ran a hard 5000 meters in 20:27 (This is about the maximum capability I have right now. I am looking forward to bringing that time down as I regain my fitness.)

Ran an easy cool down.

I am going to the hospital today to meet with 3 separate doctors. It is going to be a busy day and a lot of waiting in waiting areas.

Did an easy warm up run.

Then ran a hard 5000m in 19:58.

Did an easy cool down run to get about 7 miles.

I go to the hospital today to meet with my doctor and get the results from my CT scan. I hope the results are good.

PM: I got the results from my CT scan. They showed that the blood clots in the lungs have almost completely disappeared. That made me so happy. I still have to be on Eliquis for a while, but the doctor says I should be able to do anything I want now.

I went for a 5 mile walk in the afternoon.

Easy warm up run.

Ran 5000m in 19:24.

(My goal for today was 19 minutes or less. I was 24 seconds over my goal. I have decided that when I do a work out and set a goal for the time I want to run, I will put 10 yen (about10 cents) in a jar for each second over my goal. It will become a savings for new running shoes. Today, I was 24 seconds over my goal, so I will put 240 yen ($2.40) in the jar.

Ran an easy cool down to get 10 miles.

PM: 5 mile walk

Warm up run.

7 x 500m hill sprints (walk down). I was only going to do 6 hills but when I got to the bottom of the hill after the 6th hill, there was a real creepy looking guy at the bottom of the hill, so I decided to go back up again hoping that he would go away. When I got to the bottom of the hill after the 7th hill, I didn't see the guy, so I decided to continue on with my cool down, run, when all of a sudden he jumped out of the shadows from somewhere. I gave a scream and took off.

Easy run to get to 10 miles.

PM: 5 mile walk. It was really hot and humid this afternoon. I didn't enjoy this walk at all.
