NCAA Champ

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)

Indoor 3000: 8:14 (converted from 8:24.76 at BYU indoor race, 1/16/21)

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.

Yikes. Legs felt very juiced today. This was not a good workout. 4 by 1200 at Kiwanis, averaging like 3:37 but that's not really relevant. I was just tired. I have to continue recovering and stuff. I'm very grateful for my wife and mom who are willing to pull some extra weight with the baby to make that happen.

Felt a little better than yesterday. Got another good sleep last night, but I was still tired during the day. I'm glad to have another recovery day tomorrow and hope I can take advantage and get more hours of sleep in.

More sleep, still feeling tired. But I felt fine during school today. I'm glad my mom and wife have let me get so much sleep!

10 by K. It wasn't wheel measured so it may have been short. Also I was wearing flats. I just still feel tired. Its frustrating because I have been getting good sleeps recently, so I want my legs to feel normal again. I know that when they feel normal I will be good to go. I pulled it after 6 because trying to keep up with the pack was pushing me farther than I wanted to go. 2:59, 3:01, 2:59, 3:00, 2:58, 2:59.

5 by 800 at Kiwanis. One uphill (2:22, if it even matters), one partly downhill (2:16), one uphill (2:26), bathroom break (yeah, didn't feel so good), then one downhill (2:13) and downhill (2:15). The last two made me feel much better about what had been a tough workout thus far because they were downhill and I had missed a rep to use the bathroom. Oh well.

10 miles. Even though I didn't sleep amazing last night, I felt more loose and energized than I have since conference. Yay!

AM: 3 miles.

PM: 6.5 miles on the course. It was pretty humid, but the fact that it wasn't hot tempered it. It will be a very interesting course. Pretty hilly. Hopefully that favors me and us.

NCAAs. Weird day because it was very warm, but so windy that I was freezing in the morning. Our women won which is absolutely incredible of them. Then we stepped up to the line. We started out with the wind at our back and running downhill. So it was going to be blazing fast. I just did not feel comfortable going out any faster than I did- 2:47 through the first kilometer, in about 240th place. Yep. Clayson was just ahead of me which was a little concerning but nothing too serious yet. Turns out at the time we were doing great as a team (in the lead through the first couple kilometers). I passed people pretty fast, but not as fast as I needed to. And it was disappointing as the race progressed to hear people still yell out that we were like 140th or so. At a certain point, I passed Clayson and eventually came up on Aidan AND Elijah. I realized that TWO of us would be scoring, which is when I realized our team wasn't doing so hot. The race progressed; I actually did pretty well up the hills. 8:50 at 3k, 15:18 through 5k. I was in about 100th by 6k, and that was the one split I didnt move up in place. My kick at the end wasn't stellar, and it was dissapointing because I saw like 25 people within 15-20 seconds of me at one point, so I wished I could catch them, but didn't. Anyway I saw myself catching Jackson Mestler and almost got him. 83rd and our third runner because one of our top 3 basically passed out with 400 to go. Tough day. Hopefully things go better from here. Congrats to the other Utah teams who did very well, and NAU who is a better team than us right now, hands down. I hope this fall my teammates can bring home some more hardware. Also- Mantz never gets on the blog these days, but he WON. First American in over a decade (back to Galen Rupp). That's absolutely amazing.

5 miles, thinking about my future in running. Ran pretty quick actually (6:45) but knew full well how slow I would be if I tried working out today!

7 miles. Tempted to go farther, but I resisted. I feel like I am almost over the physical fatigue of nationals. Next week I plan to keep chilling and hopefully get over the psychological fatigue of all the racing.

8 miles after lab at 6:00. Crazy that it was still light out. That made my day not seem so long, which it was.

AM: First double in a while! Pretty fast, not that I was bouncing with energy, but I did sleep well last night.

AM: 8 miles fast. (48:30 to the windmills and back, then added extra). 

PM: 5 miles before we went to an Indian place to celebrate Sarah's birthday and graduation. On the way to my brother's apt afterward, we saw someone taking grad pictures. Its crazy to think we are graduating. Amidst all the other life events, I haven't thought about it at all.

Workout today. Actually felt pretty good, nice and in control. We ran on the indoor track because people thought it was too windy outside. 2:11, 2:13, 2:11, 2:10 for 800 and 62, 60 for 400 w/ 3 minutes rest each time. I'm just grateful that after 2 weeks of break, I hopped back in and felt fine. I feel like 2 weeks optimizes physical and psychological rest while also maintaining fitness.

AM: 5 miles. Note that I ran this pretty fast, and using some calculations, started doubting that the turnaround point on my classic morning run was accurate. When I mapped it out, it looks like indeed it was a little short. So I need to definitely go the majority of the way to the curve before turning around. I still ran like 6:40 pace this morning though. 

PM: 8 miles. Today I found out we won't be able to attend one of the races we had planned on in April. That gives me ONE shot at sea level to get a regional qualifying mark, in about a month. That is kind of dissapointing, and puts the pressure on for that one race. But a) I stand by my decision and the reasons for which I made it (I do feel like my body was telling me to take a break) and b) I am no stranger to high pressure races. There were probably three or so XC races where my ability to travel to the next race depended on me performing well in the current race. So I need to not sweat it and trust that I will be able to perform well when it counts, even though I've never run a track 10K before (which is what I hope to be able to run).
