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.

67 minutes. Felt a little stiff on the left. Eventually it felt better so I sped up, but I gotta be careful cuz that can come back to bite a few days later.

Because of my new job at the MTC, I've been very busy. I wasn't able to run until 8:30 or so after institute. Because I was feeling very loose (as it was late in the day instead of morning) and I was trying to get my run in and then get to the gym before it closed at 10, I ended up going much faster than I should have. Hopefully it doesn't come back to bite. Miraculously, I got to the gym at 9:57 and was able to do by eccentric (110) and concentric (130) drops.

Thankfully, I felt well today. Ran pretty slow. I felt a little tired after running 19+ miles in 12 hours, but mostly I felt a little cruddy today because of dehydration. It is so hard to stay hydrated! I gotta stay more on top of that.

9 miles. In wondering why I still don't feel better, I'm thinking maybe I need to turn down the mileage and do no more than 9 a day.

61 minutes. Still feeling it. One other thing is that this morning I was exhausted. Last night was my first full shift at the MTC. Wow, that is exhausting. I got home at 9:30 and was ready for bed!

I felt kind of junky with my tendon and was wondering If i should run at all. I decided to turn back after five miles and watched my friend open her mission call.

60 minutes or so. Did some legit heel raises tonight, I think they could help. They feel like they are strengthening my Achilles in a way that doesn't happen on the leg press.
