Running Accomplishments:

High School:

I broke Alan Webb's HS mile record with a... well, if anyone is actually reading this, I guess I'll be honest:

XC 5K: 15:57

1500: 4:04.55

800: 2:01.05

400: 53.07

3000: 9:18

College 

5000: 13:59.58 (UW Indoor Invite 2021)

Mile: 4:07 (converted from 4:12.06 at altitude; also converted by NCAA to 3:48.8 for 1500)

10000: 29:57 (West Coast Relays 2021)

800: 1:55.6@ (solo time trial at Provo high school)

400: 51.84h

 

Short-Term Running Goals:

-Stay healthy and don't burn out; a healthy runner is always faster than an injured one!

-Qualify for and be all American at nationals (top 40)

-Help my team accomplish any team goals, including running at nationals

Long-Term Running Goals:

-Break age group American records or at least get into the top 10 by continuing to find time to train and taking care of my body in other ways, including by eating a healthy diet, long after most people have quit competitive running.

-Break stroller 10K and half marathon records when we have kids. 

-Run Boston pretty fast at least once. 

 

Personal:

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I served a mission in Rome, Italy from 2015 to 2017. I eat a whole food, plant-based diet, which I believe helps my running. I like chocolate shakes on sunday nights and I will always call the Pacific northwest home. 

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.

25 min. My calves felt a little sore. I have been doing these exercises every day that I got from the physical therapist and I need to be careful to give adequte recovery. So today I still did the calf presses, but I skipped the eccentric drops.

35 minutes. Felt some soreness but some of it was in my calf. I have to make sure my calves and hips can recover as I strengthen them.

Great run! 50 minutes. Only issue was my right arch, which I had arched extra to avoid stressing my Achilles yesterday (obviously not completely consciously, to use an old excuse, "my body did it"). With the pain there I obviously didn't do it again today but my Achilles was nonetheless fine.

Great run, my ice burns didn't hurt too bad and my Achilles' were fine, but my right in we arch was still hurting. I'll ice it and take some ibuprofen.

Good day. I tried to back off the pace a bit. I'm not sure how much I actually did. Surely still sub 6:50 pace. My foot hurt again, and my left Achilles felt a twinge. I'm mostly concerned about the foot though. I'll do some more research and take care of it

I ran hard today! One hour. Didn't get my pace. My plan was to go a little hard. This happened very naturally. Right around 20 minutes I just started rolling. I feel like runners have a mental disorder- we like to hurt ourselves. I was so happy to get back to that feeling of exhaustion and pain that accompany running. Now time to recover and get back into it next week! Let's go!
