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 nine children: Benjamin, Jenny, Julia, Joseph, Jacob, William, Stephen, Matthew,  Mary, and Bella.  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:

...if we are to have faith like Enoch and Elijah we must believe what they believed, know what they knew, and live as they lived.

Today our Stephen got baptized, which required rearranging our usual Saturday schedule. Also some of the kids started developing colds, so they cut their mileage some.

Chad and I met at 6 am, and ran a total of 16 in the canyon with a 5 mile tempo after 3 and another 2 mile tempo slower at the end. I struggled at the start of the 5 mile tempo - we went 5:42, 5:38, 5:35. I thought I would warm up, and get into a rhythm, and I was to an extent, but not enough to handle 5:35. Afterwards, I managed another 0.75 with Chad at about 5:42 pace, and then 6:00 was I could do - like a car with a broken transmission stuck in a lower gear. Chad went ahead and finished in 28:07. My 4th mile was 5:49, and I managed to shift gears in the last quarter enough to get 5:52 for the last mile - 28:36.9 total.

There is a saying in Russian that once the fight is over you should not be shaking your fists. So at first I thought I wanted to be done with speed for today. But then during the rest of the run I started feeling somewhat better, and thought it would be beneficial to run a 2 mile tempo down the canyon off low glycogen and overall fatigue of the distance. I thought it would be very good if I could just manage 6:00. When we started, it seemed like this would be a challenge - the first quarter was 94. But then I started getting into a rhythm and felt much better. We had 5:59 for the first mile, and 5:46 for the second.

Usual distances for everybody today except William - he did only 4, I think, as I wanted him to be fresh for his mile time trial. He still has some remnants of a cold, but he wanted to run a fast mile regardless.

I did a 1.5 tempo down the canyon in 7:59.4.

Track workout with the kids. Matthew ended up doing extra 1K. He was complaining, so I had an idea. I stopped him and told him he was going to try again. His goal would be simple - run 1 mile without complaining. Time does not matter, just practice running and not complaining. Stephen, Julia, and Bonnie did a mile time trial of sorts. It was windy, so they struggled. I had them start slower - the plan was 96, 96 - ended up being 92, 98. Then Bonnie sped up - paced by Jacob. I was pacing Stephen, and William was pacing Julia. Stephen started to feel sorry for himself and ended up just stopping with 200 to go. Julia finished in 6:41.6.

Then Matthew and Stephen ran their redemption miles. Matthew in 6:32.6, Stephen in 6:40.9.

Jacob and I did 4x100 and managed 14.8 on the last one.

Joseph had an upset stomach, and just jogged today. In the evening Joseph felt better, so he, Jenny, Bonnie, and I ran to the car shop to get our car - about 3.6 miles.

Usual distances for the kids. A bit more than 12 total for me. Did a 3 mile tempo down the canyon. It was an interesting experience. I ran the first three quarters in 79 each and felt good. I thought I might slow down to 81-82 when it got flatter but no more than that. All of a sudden in the third quarter I ran 83 with 5:20 split at the mile. Then all I could do for the next mile was 5:39. I was able to shift gears somewhat in the last mile and run it in 5:34 with the total time of 16:33.9. This is my fastest time of the year. What I find very puzzling is my perception of effort. Sometimes I force the pace early on and pay for it, but when that happens I know I am playing with fire - and sometimes even when I do, I end up OK. This time I felt like this was an honest tempo effort - I was surprised that the splits were so fast. And then all of a sudden in just a quarter I got downgraded to a pace 20 seconds per mile slower, and then it did not get worse. This is symptomatic of low glycogen, and if so, maybe this is a good thing as it will make my body go into carbo load - hopefully. Otherwise, I am up for some fun at the Top of Utah :-)

Taper - total of 8, 6 + 2. Did another 2 mile tempo down the canyon in 11:48. Felt a bit stronger and more relaxed, which is encouraging.

Joseph and Jacob did 4, William 3, Stephen 2 - tapering for the 5 K. Otherwise, usual distances for the kids.

As my mother likes to say, an elephant died (in other words an extremely rare event happened). My blog is current the day before a race.

Taper - only 6 today with one tempo mile down the canyon in 5:52. Joseph, Jacob, William, and Stephen are tapering for the 5 K tomorrow - 3 for Joseph and Jacob, 2 for William, 1 for Stephen. Otherwise usual distances for the kids.

Top of Utah Marathon, 8th overall, 1st master, $300, 20th year in a row - every year they had it - in the top 10. Details to follow.

This race was an experiment. I felt that last year my performance was being limited by my adrenal glands, and believed the reason they went downhill was 20 mile long runs in August combined with 10 mile half-uphill/half-downhill tempo runs mid-week. So I felt I did not really have a choice - I had to be very gentle with any type of training that would put any significant strain on the adrenals. Through the fall and the winter, my tempo runs were usually limited to 2 miles with very occasional 3-4 mile tempos - all downhill. I almost completely eliminated the 20 mile long run - had just a couple that happened on accident. My typical long run was only 16 miles. However, I increased my daily mileage to 12 doing it usually in two runs - 8 + 4.

After 1:16:33 Utah Valley Half, which was not terrible, but not stellar, I felt that my heart needed some longer tempo stimulus. So I increased my tempo running on Saturday to 5 miles - all downhill.

The week before the race, I made sure to take a short nap in the morning or afternoon every day. I also tapered differently, reducing the mileage less than I normally do, but doubling all days except Friday, and running mini tempos all week - 3 hard on Monday, pacing a time trial on the track at roughly the marathon pace on Tuesday, then 2 at marathon pace down the canyon Wednesday and Thursday, and just 1 at marathon pace on Friday . I felt that the evening jog improved my digestion and helped me absorb the carbs better.

Based on the results of today, I am going to conclude that a) something worked, and b) long runs are overrated - at least in my case.

On two the race. I started out with Jason Holt, Matthew Williams, and Spencer Palmer. We ran the first two miles in 5:39 each. I felt good, but not good enough for the effort to be wise at the start of a marathon. So I gradually eased off to just a bit faster than 6:00. I ran the rest of the race after 2 miles alone. Mile 7 was a bit slower as it is flat while still at about 5000 feet. Things were going great until mile 10 where all of a sudden my right Croc strap clip came undone.

When I got home, I conducted an investigation and realized what mistake I had made. I had two identical pairs of Crocs. One was good, and had a bit under 900 miles on them. The other was bad and had over 1500 miles on them. I had retired the bad one as the clip on the strap on the right Croc started to get loose and caused a problem during a training run. However, the sole of that Croc was still in good shape, so it looked just like the other one with only under 900 miles. So I mixed them up running in one Croc with under 900 and the other with over 1500 that had a loose clip.

I turned around, ran back to the fallen Croc, reattached the strap, and kept on going. My mile split with all the trouble ended up being 6:20.

Then in the next mile I became aware of the magnitude of the disaster. The problem Croc came off several times. I tried running without it, but quickly realized did not have enough of Abebe Bikila in me. What do I do? If this had been any other race I think I would have just dropped out. But I was running this for the 20th time, and I had made top 10 in the 19 previous races. I had to do something. So I prayed. Then a thought came to me - press on the clip firmly to make sure it properly clicks. Then run shifting your weight towards the front of the right foot while doing the normal swing with the left. This will be slower and look and feel funny, but you will avoid the pulling back on the strap, which is what is causing it to keep coming undone, and this will allow you to finish the race. I did just that, and the strap after than came undone only once near mile 15 - which I was able to fix quickly as I was a pro at this by then.

Even with the modified form I was able to stay in the 6:00-6:10 range until mile 17, followed by 6:14, 6:18. The half split was around 1:19:04. Then came the TOU Heartbreak Hill, which to my surprise I did in 6:40. I was hoping for just sub-7:00. Then it flattened out and even dropped a bit, allowing for a 6:26 mile. Then mile 21, which is mostly downhill in 6:28.

I began to realize what was happening. The fallen Croc modified form hardly caused any slowdown on the uphill, but was costing me probably around 10 seconds per mile on the downhill. What was absolutely wonderful, something I should be very grateful for, was that I had enough strength in the back and in the calves to take the modified form for many miles without developing any sort of injury - only minor calf fatigue. I was gradually getting more and more tired from the miles, but was running quite a bit faster than last year. I was almost a minute ahead of my last year self before the Croc fiasco. Then by the half I was a minute behind instead due to the time lost on fixing the Croc combined with the inability to run fast on the downhill.

However, once I passed the half, and with the help of a flatter course, my current more energetic self, started to overtake my last years adrenal-fatigued body with vengeance, and by mile 20 I was almost full minute ahead!

The pattern of good uphill miles, and not so good downhill continued. The course was slightly different compared to last year, so not all the miles match up exactly, but the uphill/downhill pattern was preserved. It is interesting to observe that over the last 10 K all of my uphill miles were at least 10 seconds faster than last year, but the downhill ones were really a bummer - 13 seconds slower on mile 23, and only 1 second faster in mile 26.

With about half a mile to go, I experienced a sign of adrenal health. I realized that it was very unlikely that either Nate Hornok or Merrilee Blackham would catch me. I was concerned about Nate, as he was worth some circuit points and cash as a master. But it would have been particularly embarrassing to get chicked by a master while winning the masters division. I was worried about it the whole race. So when I realized it was not likely to happen, and also that the whole fallen Croc ordeal would be over soon, I felt some excitement, and I could feel the adrenaline rush, a mild one, but still a rush. I tried to speed up, but quickly ran into a problem. The heart felt weak. Well, something always has to be the limiting factor, and this time - aside from the fallen Croc form - it was the heart. It could pump enough at the pace I was running, but could not pump any harder. Something to work on over the next year.

Usual distances for the kids for the most part. William was not 100%, ran only 3 miles. Matthew is feeling better, but still not 100%. Bonnie was able to run all of the miles today, but slower.

I did my first post-marathon tempo - 2.5 down the canyon in 14:49. Felt very sluggish at the start, the first quarter was 94, then I gradually got going. This may have had to do something with a small stomach bug I caught that made me lose appetite - so I have been eating less.

Track workout today. Usual distances for the kids. Joseph was sore and tired. So I did 4x100 with Jacob. William tried to get his PR in the mile, but it was not his day - all he could do was 5:58. Stephen and Julia did 2x1 mile.

Ran in LA, did 1 mile with Julia on the track in 6:37, then did a 3200 tempo in 11:38, then more distance to make the total of 8 for the AM, and 4 at home in the PM. Total of 12 for me, usual distances for the kids.
