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.

5 miles, then five more on the elliptcial. Plus some extra biking since apparently singlets aren't allowed in the weight room. Isaac is having me take two days completely off now. Yikes! It sounds like the right thing to do. But it won't be easy. I love running!

Ran to the field house, did elliptical for an hour, ran back. I felt while I was running zero pain- all that concerns me was that my body was naturally (against my will!) "limping" by not putting stress on my left foot/Achilles. Idk why. Does that mean I'm not healthy yet? We'll see Monday.

Today I ran to the gym to do elliptical. All week I've been doing elliptical, no running. Treating it a lot more aggressively including some other exercises for mobility and balance in the hope of getting better. Additionally, I have way ramped up my heel drops because I read that for elite athletes 15-25 isn't enough to put it under stress. Today I still felt like I was limping a bit.

7 miles, felt better than ever. 

NOTE: Today was Black Friday so I bought my 7th pair of Adidas AdiZero Tempos. I won't start using them right away (they're technically a Christmas present from my parents) but just so I can remember how many pairs I've purchased, that's the number we're up to now!

I just want to make sure I'm getting better, not worse. It hurt a little today so I just ran rather than risk it.

8 miles. A little faster, and pain free, but still My body was naturally wanting to avoid stressing the Achilles.
