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)

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.

10 miles. Felt fine. I'm not sure why my toes are hurting. Perhaps it is related to the fact that I am running without insoles for the first time in years? I'm not sure.

10 miles with Tanner. A little slower. It's really hard to find the balance of eating so that I don't feel hungry during my run, or like throwing up. Hopefully for my hard long run tomorrow I prepare well!

13 miles from my apartment up the canyon. 5:48 pace overall. 6:09 pace on the way up, 5:28 pace on the way back. I was definitely chilling a little more on the way out, but you should also factor in that the turnaround point is 300 feet higher in elevation than the start. So they way back felt pretty downhill. Well, I'm super grateful to be back at it! Hopefully I can put some mileage in and get a lot faster. I'm planning on running the Rex Lee Run 5K to see where I'm at in early march. I'll plan on starting workouts next week!

One other note is that I didn't feel like my body was totally crushed afterward. It was hard for sure, but I'm excited to teach myself again to really get at it. It'll come.

I ran towards the lake loop to begin my 5 mile tempo. I ended up deciding just to run the lake loop itself since it would be a lot more open than the river trail. However, running 5:20 pace is much different from 5:50 pace, and running the loop all on my own with the wind on my face soon gave me that feeling you get the first time you work out in a while. So I decided to make it a 10-5-3-2-1 fartlek instead, though I cut out the one to avoid hurting my Achilles. I don't have a pace, other than that my first mile was somewhere around 5:06, but I felt a whole lot better on the 5-3-2 than the first ten once my body started getting used to it and I got out of the wind.

Uh oh, achilles didn't feel so hot. Tomrrow I'll either do a light workout on the intramurals, just run easy, or go to the gym.

Felt some hot Achilles pain so I went on a 25-30 mile bike ride up Provo canyon (past the turnoff for aspen grove- I just had an idea- that would be so much fun to bike up to Timp caves. Hopefully someday someone will do that with me). Maybe I went for a fast workout a little too soon.

36 minutes. Felt good, as expected. Hopefully it gets even better tomorrow as opposed to regressing as it has the past two Monday/ Tuesdays.

36 minutes. That's a success considering what has happened before on Tuesdays. It was definitely thanks in part to running on grass. It's incredible how much better that is on my Achilles.

Didn't feel half bad. Interesting how I still can't do heel raises per niente essentially without pain, whereas I used to be able to do lots when I wasn't even running. I feel like there might be two seperare issues, one of which was taken care of well by taking out my inserts, etc. and the other is still there. But then again, if I keep on being able to run longer while feeling looser, I don't feel a need to change anything.
