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.

52 minutes. I didn't have to go in the morning for work, but I decided to anyway. Hopefully that wasn't a bad choice. It hurt at first but the pain mostly went away.

60 minutes. I'll see how things go after my weekend break and next week perhaps, but there's a small concern in my head that I am not getting healthier running for an hour plus at the speed I am going. My goal is not just to "survive", I want to get healthier.

I really disciplined myself to go slower. It was hard, but I might try it again tomorrow and hopefully I will see benefits from it. 66 minutes.

Same as yesterday. No huge differences yet but yesterday I felt good enough to play knockout for the first time in forever, so that's good.

Yesterday I went to Runner's corner to get new shoes. Awesome place. Their price matching policy is incredible. Very knowledgeable staff. I ended up going for Saucony Ride 10s. They are kind of ugly compared to the tempos. And I love how you don't even feel your feet when you run in the Tempos. But they have more padding so I'm hoping they will work well! This morning was alright, a little pain on the right side today.

Like usual, it hurt right off the bat, and then mostly went away, although I was checking myself the whole time because I was concerned about both sides. 6:30s ish on the way out, 5:40s on the way back.

Didnt feel too great on either side. Maybe cuz I didn't sleep very well last night.

Ran up in the mountains which made it a little harder, and then I never really settled down. Oops. 65 minutes.

Good run. I didn't sleep super well last night (someone accidentally turned on the heat haha) and I played ultimate frisbee yesterday (in my church clothes! Long story) so it was nice that I was able to run without problems. 70 minutes.

12.9 miles. 6:12s on the way out, 5:25s on the way back. Should be noted that my first couple miles were pretty slow as I warmed up, maybe like 7:20 pace. Pretty soon after that I dropped it down quite severely to six minute pace or faster. 5:49s overall.

Hmm. I could feel my right side was tender at certain points. I'll try to be careful and avoid a big problem.

Because of how I felt yesterday and this morning, I chose to take it easy and do eliptical. There's probably over a 50 percent chance that I could have run 9 miles and be fine, but I can't afford to take risks like that.

Felt kind of cruddy. It's good that I stopped when I did, because I was limping a bit to avoid hurting my left side.
