Pre-high school: I ran a lot of local 5ks and a few half marathons.  I didn't do a ton of training, but I just had fun, and I got more serious about it as high school got closer.

Long-Term Running Goals:

School records in the 5km and 10km.  

Personal:

Served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints from July 2015-July 2017.  I gained 30 lbs. during the service and came back out of shape; however I knew that if the Lord wanted me to once again run competitively, he would bless me to return to fitness. 

I graduated from Sky View High School in Smithfield, Utah. I currently run for Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

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.

AM-Due to class in the afternoon, I worked out with Jared and Clayton.  Jared is fit, and I was not recovered enough from the 10,000m to run this workout, but I did.  We did the marathon Michigan workout, which just adds a mile on the grass before you start. 4:59, 4:25, 4:48, 3:16, 4:46, 2:08, 4:42, 60, 4:45.  My calves were burning by the 1,200m. I'm surprised Coach had me run this, but he knows best.

AM-14 miles while my dad followed me on a bike.  We went up Smithfield Canyon. I'm grateful he came with me.  It was a nice way to break up working out and running in Provo.  

PM-6 miles still in Smithfield.  My parents encouraged me to stay a few more hours due to the fires making the air quality in Provo horrible.  I'm happy I did.

PM-11.8 miles for 2x(mile, 1200, 800) at intramural field. It was pretty windy.  4:45, 3:25, 2:12, 4:34, 3:22, 2:11.  I'm sure that we cut some of the corners as time went on, but the second 1,200m felt really quick.

AM-5 miles. 

PM-4 mile warm up, 4 mile team race, 2.5 cool down.  Everything was a bit over to get it to 16 total. Race didn't really feel too great, but it was fun.  Casey had a hard sprint down the hill, and I regretted wearing flats, as I never could match his turnover at that part.  I closed most of the 30m gap at the end, but it was too big for the last hundred meters.

AM-Long run.  Up Hog's Hollow, and around the trails.  There were tons of bikers.  Beautiful trails.  Went 9 out, and planned only 20, but Clayson decided to go 20, so he told Adam and I we could go back on a different trail.  That trail added more than 2 miles, and instead added 4.5.  I was exhausted, but it was a good run, and one of the only ones where I felt really good.  I did feel a bit dehydrated though. 22.51 miles, 2:30:30, 2274 feet elevation gain.

AM-13.1.  Not feeling too great.  I woke up at 2:45 AM on Sunday and never fell back asleep.  Just over 5 hours of sleep isn't enough. Typically, I feel tired after less than 9.

PM-Hobblecreek with cool down.  Ran in 44:45, 6 seconds faster than last year.  Last year was 68 degrees, today was 88.  Instead of the middle 15 minutes being power run effort, they were closer to tempo effort.  15-LR effort, 20-Tempo effort, 10-Harder than tempo effort.  Didn't have the energy to speed up on the last one.

AM-4x2 mile.  Warm up was 3.4  5 minutes in between each set, some of which was jogged.  Ran 9:14, 9:18, 9:11, 9:14, running a fish-hook like route by lake loop.  Just over 2 miles of cool down after.  I did wear cheater shoes and the weather was nice. 

PM-6 miles on the grass. 

Soon I'll hopefully catch up on the last couple months.

AM-Long run.  18.2 at rail trial.  I planned to go 20, but fatigue sat in early, and the wind made the last few miles less than enjoyable.

AM-6.5 easy miles. 
 

PM-3.1 warm up, 3x2 mile(going off watches instead of typical wheel, so ~20 seconds slower than when wheeler) at intramural field. Ran 9:23, 9:22, 9:21. First one Milly was with me for the first 1.5 miles, second one Casey caught me in the last 50m, and third one was paced well with Casey. On the second one I went out way too hard, but had enough time in the bank to still run 9:22.

AM-10.6 with Luke Pabst, Botteson, and Adam Wood.

PM-7 miles.  We ran the river trail, which makes it a bit harder to go to the track and run strides. No strides today, just lots of easy running.
