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.

Did a warm up run.

Ran 10 x 500m (500m slow running in between). My goal time was 1:48.

My times were: 1:43, 1:43, 1:40, 1:42, 1:43, 1:41. 1:43, 1:45, 1:38. 1:34

I really had fun with this workout. It was easier than I thought it would be. I think my goal time was too slow. Next time that I do this workout, I either need to lower the goal time, or shorten the recovery time.

Cool down run to get to 12 miles.

PM: 5 mile walk

Warm up run.

I felt super good after the warm up run, so I decided to scrap the workout I had planned and decided to run a 5000 meter time trial instead.

I ran 16:44.57. My goal was to go under 17:30, but I was feeling so super good I really cranked it out. This is a BIG new PR for me. My previous PR was 16:56 back in 2019. I think I still have more in me. My last two 1000m were (3:17) and (3:15) which showed to me that I had too much left at the end.

I finished with a cool down run to get to 12 miles.

PM: 5 mile walk. It was really hot.

Long 20 mile run today. Maybe I should be more specific. I planned this run so that halfway I would make a pit stop at home where I could use the restroom, hydrate and change into some dry socks and t-shirt. It was very humid out today. It was nice to put on some dry clothes during the run, but it is hard to get started again after a stop.

PM: Short walk in the neighborhood.

Warm up run.

Ran 10 x 1000m with a little jogging in between. My watch is still broken, so I don't have a time for these, but I pretty much tried to run them all out.

Cool down run after to get to 12 miles.

Rained a little during the workout.

PM: 5 mile walk.

No running.

My problems continue.Tuesday evening I started getting a really bad stomachache. It really hurt and I felt a little nauseous and had some diarreha, so I thought I must have eaten something bad. It got so bad during the night that I couldn't sleep at all and I almost had my mom call the ambulance to go to the hospital, but decided I would tough it out. Wednesday morning it was still bad so we went to the Hospital. They took a blood sample, Xray and CT scan and found that I had an inflamed appendix. They started treating me with an intravenous drip of antibiotics. I have to go today and tomorrow to receive the intravenous drip, then if it looks like that is working I will continue taking antibiotics in pill form. We asked the doctor if I should have it removed surgically. He said that the antibodies may work for now but there is a good possibility that in the future it will occur again and may have to have the appendix removed. About 40% of people who treat the inflamed appendix with antibiotics end up having to have it removed within 5 years.

Why does all of this keep happening to me?

Anyway I won't be running for a while.

I was supposed to be leaving on a mission in July, but I guess those plans will be changing for now.

Yesterday I went to the hospital and scheduled surgery to have my appendix removed. I will be doing that next week. Before that though, the doctor wants to do a colonoscopy just to make sure nothing weird is going on inside my gut. I will be doing that today.

I was planning on making a big announcement this week about going on an LDS mission in July. I will still be leaving in July. After my surgery I will be doing missionary training at home and then go to my mission assignment.

I don't know if I will be back on the blog before I leave or not, but if not, I will be back in a year and a half.
