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.

Today’s long run was a lot different from last week. I kept wanting to go faster but Josh wasn’t taking the bait haha. Probably a good thing. I’m glad that I’m getting itchy to go fast. That’s right where I want to be. Utah Valley marathon this morning.

AM: 10 miles with Josh, including five strides. 

PM: 5 miles. One of the reasons I realize having a training partner is so good is that they keep you relaxed and not too focused on running. That sounds weird but it’s true- you shouldn’t be thinking about running all the time (which if you only think about while you run, feels like all the time when you’re running 80 mile weeks). Anyway. Achilles’ tendon feeling a little bit.

Sarah and I are headed to St. George today so I did my long run this morning. Josh wanted to come to which was nice. I was just telling him how I love storms and I wouldn’t mind personally if it was a thunderstorm on my wedding day and right then it started raining on us. He told me I got my wish haha. Interesting weather, it was pouring on us for a bit. Oh by the way, SHOUTOUT TO BYU!!!!! 1-3-4 at 10K nationals last night. That’s insane. Like, insane.

Good morning workout on Carterville road. We did a 2-5 fartlek. 2 min on, 5 off. Based on what josh was hitting, it looks like I was usually in the 4:20-4:25 pace range. I was kind of surprised at first, but then again, my goal isn’t to break 16 in the 5K this year. That was very appropriate in terms of pace based on my goals this year. Weights.

17 mile long run. We both felt very dehydrated by the end. We made it a good way up onto Murdock canal trail. Sometime it would be fun just to do 17 or 18 miles straight and have a car waiting at the end. I think we were averaging somewhere in the 6:20 range.

Not sure quite how far I went, the deal was I wouldn’t keep track of pace until next week. I did feel a little tired at the beginning of my 3-3 fartlek. I think I need to be getting more sleep. One thought I had though is that the past couple weeks have both included “chill” workouts, not anything where I pushed myself too hard. I think for my psychological well-being it might be nice to keep it that way. In the past I have always gone crazy on workouts, I would probably be wise to pull back a bit, at the very least until I run with the team.

I slept better last night. I had the windows wide open since it was cool outside. I got to bed late so I kind of had to hurry on my run (which was on my own)- like 6:00 pace hurry. Unfortunately, I was surprised at how difficult it was. I mean, I was certainly in control and could have gone faster, but I wasn't "holding myself back". Hmm. Time for some good sleep (averaged only 7.5 hoursish this week anyway) and some good work next week!

I felt a little fatigued this morning which caused concern. However, about halfway through it went away! Weird. Still, I will try to get a little more sleep and stop going to the cycling class as I had planned. Most of the exhaustion I felt in my quads which I have been pushing pretty hard on the bike anyway.

AM: Cutdown in seven segment of 1.5 miles each on Murdock canal trail. Here are the paces for each segment: 6:14, 6:04, 5:46, 5:40, 5:26, 5:24, 5:19. I ran a little under pace, but was disappointed after expecting something much easier. All I can do is hope I get faster. 

PM: 4.5 miles. Today was quite hot. I also played pickleball at noon. I just felt like I was drinking water all day and constantly needed more!

5:57 pace in the canyon. I should probably back it off a little.

Had a fun little adventure running in Garland today. I ran by fields, along a canal, and had one of my favorite pastimes- chancing upon a race and joining in. It was only like a mile of the Wheat and Beet days (yes you heard that right) 5k. Windy, but overall a good day. Strides.
