Goal Type:

Olympic Trials Qualifier

Running Accomplishments:

Best marathon: 2:23:57 (2007, St. George). Won the Top of Utah Marathon twice (2003,2004). Won the USATF LDR circuit in Utah in 2006.

Draper Days 5 K 15:37 (2004)

Did not know this until June 2012, but it turned out that I've been running with spina bifida occulta in L-4 vertebra my entire life, which explains the odd looking form, struggles with the top end speed, and the poor running economy (cannot break 16:00 in 5 K without pushing the VO2 max past 75).  

 

Short-Term Running Goals:

Qualify for the US Olympic Trials. With the standard of 2:19 on courses with the elevation drop not exceeding 450 feet this is impossible unless I find an uncanny way to compensate for the L-4 defect with my muscles. But I believe in miracles.

Long-Term Running Goals:

2:08 in the marathon. Become a world-class marathoner. This is impossible unless I find a way to fill the hole in L-4 and make it act healthy either by growing the bone or by inserting something artificial that is as good as the bone without breaking anything important around it. Science does not know how to do that yet, so it will take a miracle. But I believe in miracles.

Personal:

I was born in 1973. Grew up in Moscow, Russia. Started running in 1984 and so far have never missed more than 3 consecutive days. Joined the LDS Church in 1992, and came to Provo, Utah in 1993 to attend BYU. Served an LDS mission from 1994-96 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Got married soon after I got back. My wife Sarah and I are parents of eleven children: Benjamin, Jenny, Julia, Joseph, Jacob, William, Stephen, Matthew,  Mary,  Bella.  and Leigha. We home school our children.

I am a software engineer/computer programmer/hacker whatever you want to call it, and I am currently working for RedX. Aside from the Fast Running Blog, I have another project to create a device that is a good friend for a fast runner. I called it Fast Running Friend.

Favorite Quote:

12 total. Matthew did an 800 time trial in 2:43.1 on the track - a small PR. First lap was around 78.5. I was happy that I was able to keep up. Bonnie ran 2:33.8, close to a PR (75, 83).

Jacob paced Bonnie, then finished 1600 in 5:12, then did intervals 78 second target to failure then 30 seconds rest to total of 3200. Then 15x30 fast/30 slow. Frontier X HRM was not showing an HR of much above 180, which indicates that he is limited by something not related to his aerobic capabilities. But not the muscle power either because he can sprint.

May the Fourth 5K, 19:07, 5th overall, 2nd master, 1st grandmaster (my first race in the grandmaster category).

Kids:

Jacob 17:11 PR first,
Bonnie 19:48 2nd woman
Matthew 20:10 PR
Stephen 22:21 - better than a good number of his races lately

The course looked fast, but ended up not so fast due to the gates on the trail, turns, and some cement.

12 total. Did a 4 mile tempo down the canyon in 23:50. Joseph ran the first 1.25 with me, then got a side ache and stopped.

Jacob and Bonnie raced a 5000 at the BYU Track. For some reason both blew up completely. Jacob got 17:49, Bonnie 20:56. They started slower than last time on purpose with the idea of being stronger in the second half, and finished even slower. Not something I would have thought would happen, but it did. Not sure why.

16 total. Did 4 + 2 down the canyon. 24:10, 11:59. Joseph ran the first one with me. Jacob did it in 22:00, an improvement. Matthew and William ran the first 2 with me in 11:58.

Leigha did her first mile without holding the hand. She insisted in running on the sidewalk. Her time was 10:22.

Benjamin and Maddy got into a car accident. Somebody rear-ended them while they were waiting at a yield sign. They both got whiplash. So Benjamin ran only 10 miles today. He tried a pickup, but then started feeling numb, so he slowed down and the feeling went away.

Benjamin and Maddy went to a chiropractor, and felt better today. Benjamin ran 10 miles, Maddy 2.

16 total. Did 2x3 down the canyon, 17:45, 17:44. Matthew ran a PR for 2 miles in 11:47 with me during the first interval. Jacob did 16:09, Joseph 16:40 (first 1.5 with Jacob, then recovery of sorts, and last quarter in 65). Bonnie and Stephen did a 2 mile fartlek alternating between 200 with the target of 45 and 100 with the target of 30. Stephen I think ran right on target, Bonnie was a bit faster.

Jacob paced me in the second interval.

Benjamin did 2x3 in Austin 15:16, 15:36, then a bit later 2x1 4:57, 4:53. His best workout in Austin so far.

12 total. Did a quicker 2 miles in the middle from the house to the mile mark on the trail and back in 13:05. If I were younger, I would have written this down as an easy run, but now this pace has become a tempo - especially on hills.

Stephen had a sore throat and ran only 2 miles. Bella is still struggling. We had friends from Ukraine join us for the evening run with the girls. Denis ran 1 mile with Mary, kept up until she kicked at the end, and got 8:55. His 3 year old sister Milana ran about 0.7 or so at about 16:00 pace. His other sister Polina ran a little bit as well.

12 total. Easy pace for everybody except Jacob. He did the usual 200-100 fartlek and started struggling towards the end. Then he also did 0.5 in 2:40 shortly after and that was all he had. So something is going on with him.
