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.

AM-4.2 mike loop. Pretty snowy and icy, but a nice run.

PM-3x(mile, 800, 400). Not a very hard workout. Miles at tempo, 800 were 3k-5k pace, 400s at mile pace. Miles were 4:50, 4:50, 4:47. 800s were 2:09, 2:11, 2:08. 400s were 59, 59, 57. I really like this workout, and it was a good one for the first day of school.

AM-4.2 mile loop.

PM-5 mile tempo with 4x60 second pickups after. Tempo was a bit interesting. The goal was just under 5:00, but I kinda got ahead and didn’t have a gps watch, so after being a bit slow at the half mile mark, I sped it up and was just all over the place with pace. 4:56, 4:45, 4:56(tried to slow things down here), 4:48, 4:50. I probably should’ve gone slower, but eh, oh well. The minute pickups after felt pretty good.

AM-4.2 mile loop.  Big group for our morning run crew.  

PM-11 miles.  Clayson ran the workout today that I ran yesterday and was a second faster on the 5 mile tempo, which makes me feel a better about going as fast as I did.

Update: I got DQ'ed, hearing that I repeatedly stepped on the line on multiple laps.  

2 mile shakeout at 7:30, 2 mile warm up before the race.  A few days ago coach and I discussed the pros and cons about racing, and decided to just train through the race and try and get a time around 8:10-8:12.  I felt a bit nervous, just no pop in my legs beforehand.  We started about 15 minutes later than planned due to a few errors with runnercard.  The race went out quick, with Rory pacing, Clayton right behind him, then McMillan, and then myself.   I just stayed behind McMillan until right before the mile and passed him and got behind Clayton.  After Rory dropped off, I took the lead for about a lap and a half.  Then, I heard that we were going a bit underpace, and even though I didn't feel fatigued, I didn't feel like I had the speed to go faster, so I cut out to lane two, let Clayton pass, and then just ran right behind him the rest of the race.  He came through at 8:10, I was 8:11, and McMillan in 8:15.  I was pretty pumped to run that time, because it felt really relaxed comparitively, and I had a great workout week, so that was good.  10 mile cool down after, then dinner with my family.
