Took 9th place at Footlocker in the seniors race, 56th at state cross country(16:46). Generally had a good time.

I won a half marathon, and ran a marathon that I got like 9th in, then won some random 5ks, and wrecked some relay runs before I dipped to do missionary work in Japan.

 

Short-Term Running Goals:

Get into shape, avoid injury, compete in distance events.

I'm gonna try to race 5k's regularly.

 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Be competetive in distance events throughout my life, and keep running.

Personal:

I don't exercise. I train.

I speak Japanese.

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.

Got to the meet and lounged around until the mile. Cheered for the boys. 

Lounged around again until the 800. Cheered for the boy.

Got ready...I dunno how far out. Did about a mile with some pickups and dynamics. 

Did strides, and got on the line. I'm 4 out and 1 back. Get set, and the gun goes off.

I just kinda go. I don't think about it my legs just take me, I work the inside and take my place in the pack at about 150m. I come across at 73 for the first lap and just put it behind me and keep trucking. I make passes and run a 74 I think. I just keep passing and pacing. I cross the mile at 4:53ish. About now the pack was established and I didn't pass any more. The second to last lap was 76 and then I get in gear and finish with a 71. I took 7th and got the team some points.

It was such a sweet race, my first time under 10 and in only my first outdoor 3200 this year. I felt pretty wrecked but with some intervals I will be able to run much better times. I was really proud of my splits, my miles were 4:53 and 4:58 and my 400's were all pretty consistent. 

Did a 5 miler in the evening when I got home because I didn't have enough time for a cooldown.

Did 3 miserable miles in the morning.

Did a total of 9.5 in the afternoon. .5 warmup and then like 8.16 longrun and a cooldown on the track to finish. Felt really good for about 5 miles then started to feel it...everywhere. Finished 6:07 pace, the last 4 miles are uphill so that explains the way I felt. I'm pretty wreck so Imma get some sleep and then get up for some intervals.
