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:

...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.

Another day of croup. Now my turn to get sick. Had a fever in the middle of the night, but was able to get it down. Felt terrible the next day, frequently thought of Brigham Young and Heber C Kimball going on a mission, that helped me feel better. Dragged myself through 8 miles, felt like singing "and if we die before our journey's through..." every step of the way. Jenny did 3, William 3, Joseph still too sick to run, Jacob 4, Stephen 2, I think Julia 3 or 4. Sarah is hanging on, doing 2.5 a day.

Starting to feel better, but still coughing some, and can feel that I would like to be able to suck in more oxygen at faster speeds.

Slippery again. Got total of 12 in. Found a dry stretch near the house on the hill and did a hill workout with the kids. Joseph, Jacob, and I did 6x0.155. William and Bonnie did 4, Stephen did 2. Jacob stayed with me on all except falling back a bit on the first. Joseph was there on all, except he got dropped on the last one and ran 54. William was running his starting in 54 and eventually digressing to 57. Bonnie did the first in 52, I think, but then by the last one she was behind William. Stephen ran his in around 1:05.

Salt Lake Track Club 5 K, 18:14, 19th overall, 7th master.

Jacob 18:06 (16th), Joseph 18:07 (17th), William 19:39( - all got PRs. William split 9:51, 9:48 by halves.

Conditions were 30 F, sunny, no wind. We wore pants.

I thought with the fallout from the cough I got I would run about 18:20. So I was pleasantly surprised when I saw 3:28 at 1 K and 5:39 at the mile. Was not quite as happy to see 8:53 at the turnaround, as I knew I slowed down. Jacob was following me, Joseph fell back and had 9:00.

Then my wheels fell off. Jacob noticed , passed me and took off. I got passed by Nan, and then Dennis, then Joseph, as well as a couple more runners. All I could do was about 6:00 mile. I did have some semblance of a kick at the end, though, which is a good sign.

Afterwards, we all went for a cooldown on the race course. Later I added 4.9 miles after helping a co-worker move taking care both of the transportation and the distance to run.

Usual distances at home for everybody else who did not race. Jacob added 1 more mile taking Matthew for a run.

Jacob ran the second interval with me on the same stretch, and we did 5:49, 5:48. Both Joseph and Jacob struggled some, not fully recovered from the race I think.

Stephen did 4 miles, Jacob about 7.5, Jenny 5, otherwise usual distances.

Usual 12. Did a mile pickup down the canyon in 5:29. Usual distances for the kids.

Started doing a workout with weights. 3 sets consisting of lifting 40 lb over my head while wearing 40 lb vest, not sure what the actual weight lifting term for it is, followed by 40 hops with 40lb vest. Have been doing it for a bit over a week.

SLC Track Club 10 K, 37:14 (18:32, 18:42), 12th overall, 6th master.

Joseph 37:53 (18:34, 19:18), Jacob 38:42 (18:49, 19:53), William 41:16 (20:20, 20:56). All got PRs - for William this was a debut, so whatever he ran would have been a PR, but it was a good performance.

28 F at the start, tail wind going out, headwind coming back, strong enough to notice and make you slower, not strong enough to stop you dead in your tracks, though.

I felt better this time, got more sleep, though not that much more, but the cough is almost 100% gone, and some fitness came back. I was happy with the result given the conditions and my level of fitness two weeks ago.

Thanks to Dennis (I followed him most of the race), my splits were a lot better than last week as well. I was not happy with two 6:05 miles in the middle, but that was all I could do into the wind in my current state of fitness.

At the end, I did not quite have the gear to outkick Dennis (even though he is 56 years old), but his kick has improved in spite of him getting older.

Total of 15+. Did 2x2 down the canyon. Part of it was covered with snow, so the times were slower. I did the first one with Joseph in 12:07 (6:13, 5:54). Bonnie and William ran the first mile with us finishing a bit behind, maybe 6:14-6:15. Stephen ran the first 0.5 falling back a bit, so around 3:08. That was the slippery part.

On the second one, which I did with Jacob, I was more used to the snow, so I was able to go faster, and he kept up. We ran 11:54 (6:02, 5:52). He struggled a bit towards the end.

Overall I felt it was a good workout.

SLC Track Club 15 K, 56:24, 10th overall, 5th master. Improvement over two weeks ago, I think - 10 K split was 37:22 vs 37:14 10 K race. 25 F at the start.

Jacob ran 1:00:29, Joseph 1:00:35, William 1:05:05.

I ran with Chad for a bit more than the first 5 K (18:24), then a bit in no mans land until Dennis caught up to me around 4 miles, and then Mark caught up to us shortly after the turnaround, and the we caught up to Jon Gauthier. We all ran together like this, 37:22 at the 10 K. Then Dennis fell back with about 2 miles to go, and Jon and Mark dropped me with a surge at around 1 K to go. Results, top 20:

I was happy with my result, it was an improvement from the last two races. I was only 8 seconds slower through the 10 K than my race time, and I kept going at a decent pace to the finish (19:02 last 5 K).

For Joseph, Jacob, and William this was more of an experiment. I did not really know what to expect, but I was surprised at how much speed they lose when you go from 10 K to 15 K. Makes sense, though, as their daily distance is 6 miles (Joseph and Jacob), and 5 miles (William).

Did 4x0.25 with 0.125 recovery with Joseph and Jacob down the canyon targeting 75, but we did 71.3 and 70.2 on the last two. Joseph stayed with me on all of them. Jacob fell back on the last one and got 72.8. Bonnie did the first three, stayed with us on the first two, the last one I think she had around 75. Stephen did a few 100 meter stretches, total of 5 miles. William ran easy 5.

Matthew set a new mile PR on the little boy course - 7:05.6 - splits 1:48, 1:49, 1:46, 1:40. Finally his quantity of fast runs translated into quality.

Total of 16. Was tired today. Did not want to run, but made myself go. Ran the first 4 miles with Joseph, Jacob, and Bonnie - they did a total of 8. Said a prayer during the run, asked the Lord to help me learn to enjoy running. Somehow managed to have run for 34 years without enjoying it. When I was younger, I had more raw willpower, and it did not matter that I did not like running that much. Now that I am older I need to learn to like it to keep running.

In answer to my prayer Armando showed up. He was able to run the first mile of the 3 mile tempo with me. I was tired, my legs were not moving, could barely run sub-6:00. It was raining/snowing, but not so bad to justify struggling so much to run so slow. But I did make it through the tempo, though I just wanted to stop after the first two miles.

Then I ran to the house with Armando - we shared some knowledge - I told him how I thought he could get faster and recover better, and he taught me how to properly say it in Spanish. 5 more with William and Stephen, took a nap, ate dinner, and ran another mile with Matthew.

Maybe look for some different running routes and explore? It always helps me when I get that way.

Total of around 12. All intervals down the canyon. Did 3x0.375 with Joseph and Jacob (1:53.8, 1:51.2, 1:50.6) - 0.125 recovery. The target was 1:52.5 - 5:00 pace. We are working on getting used to that pace so we can break 5:00 down the canyon first. Then, once successful, we will try to repeat or at least get close on the track. Bonnie and William did 2x0.25 in around 77 or so - they both were not 100% today.

Also did Stephen's workout with William - 4x0.25 with 0.125 recovery with the target of 90 seconds - we were a bit faster.

William and Stephen ended up with 7 total today - somewhat on accident.

Took it easy today, total of 13. Did a test on Julia to see what her HR is doing at a faster pace. Even though at 8:30 pace her HR is around 170, for the life of her she could not get it above 188 when we picked it up, and she could only run 6:50 down the canyon. So sounds like weak adrenal glands, need to figure out what to do about them. One thing I told her to do is to make sure she gets to bed early and takes naps. Matthew insisted on running on the track. I told him he had to run the first quarter in under 1:45 if I took the trouble to drive him there, or he would not get his standard popsicle for the run. He agreed to the deal. His first lap was 1:38, then he still ran decent - 1:48, 1:49, and all he had to do in the last lap to PR was 1:46, but he just said he did not want the record and coasted in with 1:51 finishing in 7:09. Afterwards, we had a discussion about not letting a bird fly away when you have it in your hands.

11 total, paced Sarah to 7:40 mile down the canyon, then in the afternoon did a workout with Joseph and Jacob - 2x0.5 with 0.25 recovery down the canyon. Joseph and I got 2:27.5, 2:29.8. Jacob had 2:28/2:33. Bonnie and William did 2x0.25 with us. Bonnie kept up, William was back a couple of seconds. Stephen had sore throat, so I just had him run easy. More or less usual distances for the kids, except Joseph, Jacob, and William did an extra mile with Matthew.

Chess tournament in the morning - Utah Elementary Chess Championship. Results:

Jacob 4.5 out 6, 6th place in 6th grade. Managed to hypnotize his opponent into giving him a stalemate in a losing position.

William 4 out 6, 14th place in 4th grade.

Stephen 3.5 out 6, 27th in 2nd grade. Again pulled off a draw by repetition while losing. Maybe he will be a good businessman. Knows how to reach a compromise, good at managing inventory.

Matthew 3 out 6, 15th place in kindergarden. No compromise, goes for the win even when he is losing. Was a queen down in his last game, but hypnotized his opponent into giving it back, and eventually through his persistence won the game.

Running-wise I did a total of 12 miles. 3 with Jenny, 3 with Joseph, Jacob, William, and Stephen - 1 of which was with Matthew on the track, and he ran a PR in spite of the post-chess-tournament fatigue of 7:00.6 - almost broke 7:00. I also did a pickup for a mile in 5:34 down the canyon to catch up to Julia, and then ran the last 2 miles of her run with her.

Special day for Matthew today - he broke 7:00 in the mile with 6:56.7 on the Orem High track. William, Stephen, Joseph, and Jacob paced him. I was having back pain issues, so I lagged behind a bit in the first lap, then caught up at the end of it once I was better warmed up. His splits were 1:36, 1:46, 1:48, 1:43. I ordered him a laptop today.

Today also was the second day of the Utah Highschool/Junior High Chess Championship - results: Jacob 2.5/5, Joseph 2/5, Julia 2/5.

I was able to get in 14 miles in spite of the back pain and the chess tournament - but no tempo running.

Total of 13. Did a 3 mile fartlek with Jacob down the canyon in 17:40 with the fast intervals 3x0.625 + 0.75 at 5:36 pace, and recoveries at 8:00 pace for 0.125 between each. Joseph made it only through part of it.

Otherwise, everybody else ran easy except Matthew. He has been on a track obsession, insists on going to the track every day and trying for some kind of a record. Today he tried for 400, but missed it by 1.1 - he was on pace at 300, but then when I told him to kick he started talking back "I am already kicking!" and that cost him the record. It is better to struggle to learn to accept feedback at the age of 6 than to never develop the skill :-)

Total of 13. Julia did a mile on the track in 6:48.2. We are trying a new method to try to repair her adrenal glands - 3 miles a day, twice a week 4x60m with 3 downhill and 1 uphill, and 1 mile time trial on the track to see how well the method is working. Today was just to establish a baseline. Her HR gradually climbed to 187 on the third lap, but then had a dip to 185 during the last lap. She was able to get it up to 190 over the last 50 meters but it was very hard for her.

Matthew ran another mile PR of 6:54.8 - splits 1:39, 1:43, 1:46, and 1:44.

In the afternoon, paced Bonnie with Joseph and Jacob through a 2 mile PR down the canyon of 12:00.5. They picked it up in the last 0.5, but did not have much juice - Joseph ran 2:41 (11:43), Jacob 2:47 (11:49). William did the first mile with us in 6:00.

Stephen ran a PR of 6:09.8 down the canyon in spite of a headwind and a side-ache. He is getting tougher.

Did 10 before the first session with Chad. Joseph and Jacob did 9.5. Chad and I did a 5 mile tempo down the canyon in 29:09 (5:57, 5:57, 5:49, 5:50, 5:36). Joseph did the first 3 (17:43), Jacob last 3 (17:14 as he started a bit later).

Then in between the sessions did 5 with William and Stephen, and 1 more with William and Matthew between the afternoon and the Priesthood sessions.

Total of 12.5. Did a workout with Jacob - same as last week, 3 miles total in 17:32 alternating 0.625 targeting 5:36 pace and 0.125 targeting 8:00 pace, with the last interval being 0.75. Our pace on the fast intervals eventually migrated to around 5:30 range, and we were pretty much right on target on the recoveries. Jacob did the whole workout. Joseph struggled through the first two intervals, but kept up, got dropped in the middle of the third and ran 3:41 on it, then he was done. We need to work on mental toughness for him - short recoveries especially at a brisk pace mess with his brain, which is why we are practicing this workout.

Stephen ran only 2 miles today - his foot was hurting. William did 4. Jenny 5, Julia 3.

In the evening I ran with Matthew. He wanted to go to the track and try for a record. I tried something different with him. I told him I would run the pace for his record as evenly as I could possibly manage it, and his job was to stay ahead of me. That seemed to work - even though it was late, dark, and wet, he ran 3:14.6 800 PR (1:35, 1:39).

Total of 15+ miles. Did a redemption workout with Joseph - same as Tuesday, except only two miles. We did it in 11:33.9, and he hit everything on target or better. Last 0.5 in 2:41, I was happy about that. To motivate him he raced William over two miles who was running a steady pace, and Jacob was pacing him. Unfortunately William was in a bad mood today and after the first 1.25 at a bit over 6:00 pace he just eased to a jog and finished the 2 mile stretch in 12:27. Jacob maintained the tempo pace and finished in 12:03.

Ran with Chris Luciano in the evening.

Joseph, Jacob, and Julia took the ACT in the morning today. So I did 10+ on my own in the morning with a 5 mile tempo down the canyon in 28:52 - splits 5:47, 5:50, 5:44, 5:49, 5:42. There was some headwind, but it was not terrible.

Then I ran with Mary, and then took all of the boys including Matthew to the canyon for a run. First we paced Matthew through 3 miles down the canyon in 22:30 (7:19, 7:28, 7:43). Then Sarah picked him up, and I ran back to the car with the rest of the boys with the exception of Stephen who ran home (total of 5). Joseph, Jacob, and William ended up with a bit over 6.

Total of 12 today. We did an interesting workout. Jacob (pacer) and William started on a 2 mile tempo 30 seconds ahead of myself and Joseph. Joseph had the target of 2x0.625 + 0.5 with 0.125 recovery in between. He could run the recoveries as slow as he wanted, but he had to hit 5:36 pace on the intervals or else he lost the race automatically. William just ran steady. So William split 6:00, 5:52 to finish in 11:52. Joseph and I caught him with 600 to go and we ended up with 11:14 for 2 miles.

Jacob was strong in the first 2 miles, but then struggled in the last mile. So I did not think I was going to run 29:00, but then he kicked in 36 for the last 200 and we caught the 29:00 guy at the very end.

However, he was not having a good day, so Joseph and Jacob caught him around 1.25 mark. I decided I would be more helpful if I ran with Joseph and Jacob at that point, so I went with them. Joseph ended up with 10:56 (5:29, 5:27) - new PR, Jacob 11:03 (5:29, 5:34), missed his PR by 4 seconds. I got 11:37 for 2 miles.

Total of about 13. Did a 3 mile tempo down the canyon with Chris, Joseph, and Jacob. We went through the first mile in 5:34. Then Joseph started struggling. We slowed down, but he was still struggling. So I told him to slow down to 6:00 and coast to the finish, but instead he slowed down to 6:20 and stopped at 2 miles. We went ahead. Our second mile was 5:46. After that Chris sped up and ran 5:20, 5:25 for 2 more. Jacob and I ran another 5:40 finishing in 17:00.9, which is Jacob's PR by 5 seconds on that course. It also was my fastest time of the year, and a course PR as a father of 11!

Total of 13+. Joseph's redemption run - 3 miles down the canyon. I paced him, while Jacob paced William. William had a 75 second head start. Joseph and I went through the first mile in 5:36, then the next quarter in 83. So far so good. Then he started struggling, but seeing William in front slowed down only to 5:50 instead of a complete disaster. 11:22 at 2 miles - 5:46 for the second. By that time we were 3 seconds behind William. Smelling blood in front, Joseph upped the effort. Not wanting to be devoured immediately on the spot William upped the effort as well. This rebooted Joseph and got him back on pace. He started running 85-86 quarters, kicked in 79 and ended up with the last mile in 5:36 and 16:58.5 for the 3 miles beating Jacob's record and getting a 16 second PR for himself as well. William ran 18:38 (6:09, 6:25,6:04).

Total of 19 miles. First did 10 with Chad (Joseph and Jacob did 9.5) including 5 down the canyon in 28:31 (5:53, 5:50, 5:40, 5:40, 5:28). The plan was 5:55, 5:50, 5:45, 5:40, 5:35. Joseph did the first 3 in 17:23. Jacob did the last 3 starting 1 second behind, so he got 16:47, which is his new course PR. Joseph's last quarter was 81, so we took a break after that in 88, but then got back to pace. Jacob found 77 in the last quarter, which gave us 5:28 for the last mile.

Then I took Julia to the track while we were getting the oil changed in the van. She ran 1 mile in 6:43, and then 2x400 with full rest in 89 high.

Then later I took Matthew, Jenny, and Stephen to the canyon. First we ran 3 with Matthew - then Sarah picked up Matthew, Jenny and Stephen ran home, and I ran back to the car.

Did a workout with Joseph and Jacob - 2 down the canyon with 0.625 intervals and 0.125 recovery, last one just 0.5. Tried 5:20 pace today, it was too hard for them. Jacob was OK on the first 2 intervals (3:17, 3:22), then faded on the last 0.5 a bit and ran 2:43. Joseph gave up in the middle of the second interval and slowed down to 3:34, then ran the last 0.5 in 2:47.

Then ran some distance with Jenny, and then decided to try a fast mile uphill to see how I would handle it. Was able to run 5:51. Ran with Matthew and Stephen in the evening, we got wet.

Raced 1500 with the kids in the AM at Orem High, then ran 8 more miles, then 4 more in the evening. Total of a bit over 14.

Race results:

Joseph
4:56.27, Dad 4:56.74, Jacob 5:00.23, William 5:26.59, Bonnie 5:27.65
(PR), Jenny 5:37.85, Stephen 5:55.76 (PR), Matthew 6:16.48 (PR),
Julia 6:35.75. Matthew also ran an en-route 800 PR of 3:11.

I was the happiest about Matthew's race. He opened with 1:30, then slowed down to 1:41 (PR for the 800 en-route), 1:45, and then 1:20 (1:47 400 pace) for the last 300. This is 6:46 mile equivalent.

In my race, I struggled from the start (77 first lap felt hard), but then it really did not get worse, and I just kept doing 80s. Could not go much faster, but at the same time was not slowing down. Happy to still be under 5:00 in the 1500 as a 46-year-old father of 11, but of course hope to improve it. Last year I managed 4:46, but not without some specific middle-distance preparation. This year I have been focusing more on tempo runs.

Joseph and Jacob struggled today, but still held things together. William just did not know how to run alone. Bonnie ran a great PR. Stephen had a good race with a 10 second official PR and 6:23 mile equivalent. I was happy with Jenny's result given her latest problems with the rib pain. Julia is struggling, but is still running and trying to hang on.

Laura Bluth (maiden name Young), a 15:51 5000 runner, caught up to us and we picked it up and ran with her for a bit over a mile until it was time for us to turn around. She was going around 7:20 up the canyon. I encouraged her to race in the UVM half. Then we turned around and for some time kept the effort, which gave us a sub-7:30 average for 6 miles.

Hey wait! Is it the Laura Young that ran for BYU? If so, thatís pretty sweet! Sheís awesome.

From Sasha Pachev on Sat, May 18, 2019 at 13:39:30 from 72.250.218.114

Yes, she said she just finished running for BYU. I like to guess people's PRs based on how comfortable they look running at whatever pace we are running, so I guessed out of the blue without knowing who she was 16:50 on a track in California. She said she had run 16:10, but then I looked up her profile, and she had actually run 15:51 indoors which she forgot to mention. So I was actually a minute off, but I have a good excuse - we were going slow enough that it would be hard to tell a difference between a 15:50 and a 16:50 5 K runner.

From Sarah! on Tue, May 21, 2019 at 10:52:43 from 73.63.54.46

Wow thatís so cool that you can guess paces based on how they run! I think thatís very impressive that you were able to guess her PR within a minute of what it actually was for the 5k. I wouldnít have known :)

Paced Sarah in the morning, met Steve Ward on the trail and did a mile with him down the canyon in 5:28, then raced 3000 with the kids in the evening at Mountain View track in Orem.

3000 was a death march in 85 F at 4:30 pm. Results:

Joseph 10:41.48, myself 10:44.57, Jacob 11:05.96, Bonnie 12:03.10 PR,
William 12:16.43, Julia 14:47.56. In the 800, which was in cooler
conditions, but after some wait, Stephen ran 3:00.06 and Matthew
3:15.71. This is Matthew's official PR, but he split 3:11 in the 1500
a few days earlier. Then Jenny ran 1500 in 5:33.8 (they still have not
fixed her automatic time, so this is my hand time). Her side was
bothering her a lot, and we seriously considered not having her race.
Then she said a prayer, and we had a thought - try a stride at 6:00
mile pace. She did it, and it did not hurt - yet. Then I said - why
don't you start the race, and see what happens? She was able to run a
1500 PR.

The first quarter was in 73 high, then we all suffered. Chad did 5:13/5:27, Jacob and I had 5:20 at the mile, he pulled away from me in the last quarter (81 vs 84).

Matthew ran 23:56 3 miles on the big boy course (with hills). Mary ran a PR for 0.5 in 4:31 (no hand, no stopping) - splits 2:19, 2:12.

Ran with Sarah, then did a pickup uphill for 0.5 in 2:54, then we went to the track and did a race between Jacob, William, and Joseph. Jacob and Joseph ran the mile, while William ran 1500 - all starting at the same time. I paced William. The race highlighted our lack of preparation for the mile/1500 - William did the first two laps OK - 84, 86, and then all he could do was 93 for the third, and he ended up with 5:30.9. Joseph and Jacob opened in 74, but it proved too much for them. They were OK in the next lap - around 80, and then they fell apart finishing in 5:21 (Joseph), and 5:25 (Jacob).

Afterwards for a test Joseph, Jacob, and I did an 800 with the target of 75/80. Joseph lead us through the first 200 in 35, but then he was out of juice and could not hold the pace. Jacob struggled as well, but not as much. So I got 2:35, Jacob 2:41, and Joseph 2:47.

I think with William it is mostly mental, but with Joseph and Jacob, we need to do something different in training. We are going to try doing 4+2 instead of all 6 at once, and some more specific mile race pace workouts.

Did a points workout with William and Stephen today. The idea is that you take your goal mile pace and try to run the mile at it. If you make it, you score 10 points and you are done. If you do not, you get partial credit - 1 point for being on pace at 0.25, 3 points at 0.5, 6 points at 0.75. Penalty of 1 point per second. You do not have to finish the mile to get the points, and for each interval you get the best points - e.g. you were on pace at 0.5, but then totally fell apart by 0.75 - so then your points are counted by 0.5 split, but if you were off pace at 0.5, but then sped up and caught up, then your points count from the further split. You keep doing the intervals until you have 10 points total.

William's target pace was 5:36 (84s). He missed it by 2 seconds, and then made up with 4x0.25. Stephen had the same target pace, except all of his intervals were cut in half. He ran 2:07 for the first 0.375 (I gave him a bonus second as a compensation for my mis-pacing), and then did 0.25 and 0.125.

Did a points workout with Joseph and Jacob in the AM with the target of running 1 mile down the canyon in 5:00. In the first interval, Jeff made it to the mile in 4:58, Jacob and I made it on pace to 0.5, then both of us fell off and had 3:50 at 0.75. At that point I stopped, while Jacob kept going and finished the mile in 5:10. Joseph stopped shortly after 0.5.

Then Jacob and I made up the points with 0.25 intervals and two 0.5. Joseph did only 0.25. I did a a couple of extra intervals with Joseph.

Ran 6 with Bella and Leigha in the stroller in the evening with Stephen joining me on foot for 4 miles, Matthew for just 1 (he was not feeling well), and Mary 0.5.

Jenny ran 8 miles. Julia did 3, I think, still recovering from the wisdsom teeth removal.

Benjamin came home today. We met him at the airport. He was tired, and had a cold. He came home, took a nap, then jogged 1.5 miles, and went back to sleep. Joseph picked up a cold today, jogged a couple of miles. Jacob and I tried to do a points workout, started with a warm-up 0.25 in 74.9, that felt too hard, then we started the mile, but after the first quarter in 77 I felt we should do a different workout, so we coasted to 0.5 in 2:37, jogged back to the start of our 2 mile tempo and ran it in 11:16/11:17 with the first 1.5 at a bit slower than 5:30, and then we tried to run 5:20 pace for the last 0.5, but Jacob did not have it, so we only managed 5:28 pace.

Total of about 12. Did Sarah's 1.5 tempo + also did 0.5 with Stephen in 2:49.5 down the canyon. Joseph ran about 5.5, Jacob I think did 4+2. Benjamin did 6 + 2, his first real training day since he got back. Still recovering from the fatigue of travelling and the cold.

Eventful day. We are hosting two Ukrainian runners - Sergei and Ruslan, who came here for the Utah Valley Half Marathon. They had some adventures getting here - they were driving from Las Vegas, and hit a 3+ hour traffic jam caused by the fallout of the wrong way drunk driver between Cedar City and St. George.

Jacob and I did a fast finish 2 mile tempo run down the canyon. We started at the same pace as Tuesday, but both of us shifted gears much better in the last 0.5 and managed 2:35 - 11:08 for 2 miles.

Benjamin ran 6.25 with Sergei and Ruslan in the evening - Joseph did 6, William and Stephen 4, Matthew 2, Julia I think 3+2, do not remember what Jenny did.

Utah Valley Half Marathon, 1:18:28, 19th overall, 3rd master, $50.

I thought I'd be able to run 2 minutes faster, but long story short, I could not. Some of it is perhaps just getting a year older, some of it missed sleep, some maybe the day was not as fast - although the conditions - while not 100% perfect - were not terrible. And perhaps my recent experiment of 6+6 backfired and made my legs cave somewhat after 8 miles due to the lack of longer runs - though I did find a 5:56 mile for mile 12 when I focused. So maybe it was just the low adrenaline again.

We were not sure what kind of condition Benjamin was in after his flight, with a cold, having traveled cross-continent, and after two years of only 45 minutes of running a day with some missed days due to various contingencies + reduced sleep. But based on how his runs were going on his mission + how he felt in the easy runs this week I figured he should be able to keep up with me, and I was more than right. At 6 miles he told me he wanted to go faster, so I told him to shift gears at the 20 mile mark of the marathon (about 6.9 in the half) and he did - hitting 2 miles at 5:20, then after 9 he started running out of juice some and slowed down to 5:40 finishing in 1:15:28 in 13th place with the last 10 K in 34:38 (measured from the 20 mile mark of the marathon to the finish).

He told us at the end of his mission that he was dreaming of being able to run straight and as fast as he wanted - on his mission he had to be with his companion 24x7, which meant either running something no faster than 8:00 for a couple of miles, running on the track, or back and forth in front of the house. So I signed him up for the UVM half :-)

Stephen got an almost 8 second PR. Julia and Jacob improved her time from the last meet. William ran about the same - except he started out even faster - 78. We need to do something about his third laps in over 90. I do not think it is physical. Clearly if he can run 78 thinking he has further to go, then after an 88 break he should be able to run at least another 88, if not 84-85. But I think what happens is that it starts to hurt and he starts feeling sorry for himself, and then just stops trying at 100% effort. Similar problems with Matthew, except Matthew is a temperamental 6 year old, so all bets are off :-)

Did a tempo run with Benjamin in the morning. He paced me through 2 miles down the canyon with the first 1.5 at 5:40 pace, and then the target was 78, 75. I was able to do 78, 76, which gave us 11:05 for 2 miles. Then I went to get the car, and he - with some grumbling - did the second interval. The original target was 5:20 pace to 1.5, then 5:00 for the last 0.5. He told me he was tired, so I gave him the target of 5:30 pace for 1.5 with some kind of pickup in the last 0.5. Well, turned out he was not as tired as he thought - 7:56 for the first 1.5, and then 2:27 for the last 0.5 - total of 10:23.

Then in the evening we went to the track meet in Nephi. Except by the time we got there it was over. So we just did our own time trials. It was still warm - 80F. We waited some for the sun to set, but we could only wait so long. So Stephen ran a PR in the 800 - 2:52.9. Then Joseph, Jacob, William, and Bonnie ran 3000. I paced William. Joseph got 10:39, Jacob 10:40, William 11:27, Bonnie struggled today and ran 12:29. Joseph and Jacob had a good start - steady pace like I told them to 2000 (3:32, 3:31). Then something really odd happened - they both got lazy, neither one wanted to push the pace, and they ran the next 600 in 2:18. And then they kicked - 78 for Joseph, 79 for Jacob.

William got a small PR. He was doing well in the first 3 laps (89,89,90), but then started to fade (92,95,96). Thanks to 88 in the last lap he was able to pull off a PR, though. We still need to work on the mental focus, drive, and toughness. He really should not be running slower than 92 laps even if he is hurting.

I have noticed from your blog that you do a lot of running down the canyon. Do you feel there are a lot of benefits from running downhill? What is the best way to use downhill running in training, and what grade of hill is the best? I assume that too steep of a hill is not good.

Do your worry about injury to the knees etc. due to the extra impact from downhill running?

From Sasha Pachev on Fri, Jun 07, 2019 at 22:56:05 from 76.8.216.2

Eva:

I have noticed over the course of the years that I run best when I do the majority of my speed on 1-2% downhill grade. There are also some studies that have demonstrated that eccentric contractions (muscle contracting to resist being stretched) develop leg strength better than concentric (normal muscle contraction).

From Eva Splaine on Sat, Jun 08, 2019 at 15:35:22 from 108.61.201.170

Thank you for the information Mr. Pachev. I will do some research on eccentric contraction exercises. Sounds very interesting.

Ran 12+ with Benjamin in the AM - did a 6 mile tempo down the canyon in 34:54 (5:56, 5:58, 5:49, 5:45, 5:50, 5:36). Benjamin turned up the heat on me with about 600 to go, I considered asking him to slow down, but that would have involved talking and I was already out of breath. So instead I said a prayer asking the Lord to give me the adrenaline to keep the pace, and the prayer was answered. The pace became bearable - though I had to keep my focus to keep it, and I was able to run 80 for the last quarter.

Then we went to the track meet at Juah High in Nephi. Results:

Joseph and Jacob had good races, both ran official 1500 PRs in a close race - splits 78, 76, 79, 59/60. Everybody else bombed. Part of the problem was the headwind. Jenny had a problem with her muscles hurting from something. I am suspecting it might actually be a good thing because she has been doing a therapy to correct her neck imbalance which resulted in overrotation when she ran which gave her persistent side pain. Now that the imbalance has been corrected to some degree, she rotates less which makes her use her muscles differently, and I think she is still adjusting to the new form. For William and Matthew I think it was a matter of not having the mental toughness to deal with the headwind. Stephen I think just got too comfortable in the second lap and ran it in 1:41. After that it is hard to motivate yourself to get back to pace in the third lap and to kick - especially when you are only 9.

Joseph, Jacob, and I added 4 miles in the evening. William, Stephen, and Jenny did 2 more.

In the morning did 3x0.625 down the canyon with Benjamin, Joseph, and Jacob - we got 3:19.8, 3:19.1, 3:17.5. 0.25 recovery jog in between. Benjamin after that added a 2 mile tempo down the canyon. His target again was 5:20 pace for the first 1.5, and then close at 5:00 pace. He started with the first 0.5 in 2:31, then dialed it down to 2:37, 2:37 (7:45 at 1.5), then closed with 73, 71 (2:24, 4:48 pace) and finished in 10:09. His pre-mission fitness is starting to come back.

Did 4 more in the evening, 1 with Julia. Benjamin did 2 more, 1 of those with Matthew. Joseph and Jacob did just 5 in the AM with no PM run. William and Stephen ran 4. Jenny did 2+2.

Total of 12. Ran 8 with Benjamin in the AM. He paced me through 2 miles down the canyon in 10:49.8 (5:28, 5:21). The target was 82s(5:28 pace) for the first 1.25, then 80s (5:20 pace) for the remaining 0.75. He started me a bit faster - 80, but then gave me a break with two 83 quarters, followed by 82, so we were right on target at 1.25. Then he wanted to be nice and gave me a break on the uphill, but apparently too much - we ran 85 for the next quarter. Then we sped up to 80 as planned, and did the next two quarters on target. In the last one I found another gear and made up what we lost in the first quarter of the second mile closing in 76. This is my fastest time of the year, also 46 year old, and father of 11 PR.

Ran with Julia and Matthew in the evening, plus some myself - total of 4. Kids were on reduced mileage tapering for the state meet tomorrow.

Joseph and Jacob ran perfectly for the first 2000 - 3:26, 3:26, and then fell apart - Joseph more than Jacob. This has to be mental - how do run 3:26, 3:26, and then fade to 3:36 for the last 1000 ? Or especially 3:44 for Joseph. If 3:26 was too fast for the first 1 K, then the second 1 K would have revealed some signs of fatigue. I think the memory of the last 1 K being miserable overcame both of them. William Horne won the race with 10:21.05, Jacob was second, Joseph third. Jacob missed his PR from Greensboro last year by 0.83.

Our William opened in 3:47, then ran the next lap in 92 and I missed his splits after that. But obviously they were not awesome - barely faster than 96 average. He was not in a good mental state at the start of the race, as evidenced by a classic quote - very typical of William - "You pay for me to run in races, why? So I could experience pain? And why? So I could qualify for more pain!" So in a way I was happy that at least he was not over 12:00. His 11:38 was good enough for 4th. Cole Jameson won with 10:45.38.

Jenny was battling shin splints. All last year she struggled with a mysterious side pain that we now are inclined to think came from excessive torso rotation. She did a NUCCA treatment, which in combination with carrying rocks while running, reduced her torso rotation and with that the mysterious side pain. However, at the same time she developed shin splint, which is probably connected to the change in the form - her legs were not conditioned to run straight. So she came to the race on reduced mileage and in a lot of pain. Nevertheless she managed 12:01, which I was happy about. Bonnie was not 100% either due to much dancing, but still ran 12:02.89, a 0.01 PR. Julia did better. Looks like the work we did with her to increase the leg turnover did something. She got 13:35 - fastest time of the year. However, her first 1000 was 4:12, and then she just got tired of turning over at a higher rate and went back to her lazy stride - so the last 2 K was 9:23, 4:41 average - we need to work on moving the legs for the entire duration of the race, not just the first 1 K.

12 total in the AM with Chad and Benjamin, we did 6 mile tempo down the canyon. I got 34:27.9 (5:55, 5:51, 5:41, 5:42, 5:44, 5:34). Benjamin and Chad pulled away from me in the last 200 and gapped me by about 3 seconds.

Then I took the kids to the Utah USATF championship. Joseph and Jacob did the 1500 - Joseph 4:52.63 (PR, 2nd), Jacob 4:59.90 (3rd). William Horne won with 4:42.30. Joseph had a good race, Jacob was worn out from the 3000 the night before.

In the 800 Stephen ran 2:59.50 (4th), Jonas Clay won with 2:39.72. Matthew ran 3:16.66 (2nd), Luke Foote won with 2:52.34.

Both Stephen and Matthew had a problem mentally engaging in the race. They should have been at least 5 seconds faster.

Afterwards I ran with William and we paced Sarah through a 1.5 mile tempo. It was warm, so I dumped water on her every 0.25.

Did a workout in the AM with the boys. First with 1.25 with William down the canyon in 7:12 - his target was 7:20, closing 0.25 85. Then did the same interval with Joseph, Jacob, and Benjamin at a faster pace. Jacob did everything perfectly, 5:21 evenly paced at the mile, then 76 for the last 0.25. Joseph struggled, decided to DNF after about 0.75, Benjamin tried to talk him into finished, but was not successful. I was able to keep up with Jacob, though I had to work.

After our 2x1.25 Benjamin did 2 miles down the canyon alone. His target was 10:00 - 5:00 pace. He ran 4:51, 4:53 and got 9:44 - his fastest time on the course since he got back and only 11 seconds slower than his pre-mission PR.

Then we paced Adam Moody, Rachael Moody's son. His first 800 was unsuccessful - for some reason he could not even keep up with Matthew who ran 3:11.8. Then I paced Julia through 8:43 2000 while Adam rested, and then Stephen and I paced Adam through an 800, which went a whole lot better - he ran 90, 93 for a 3:03.7 PR by 5 seconds.

Then did a cool down to the house, and then 2 more miles in the evening with Benjamin.

Kids did reduced mileage tapering for the regionals. Benjamin paced me through 2 miles down the canyon. The target was 10:40, 5:20 pace, and with Benjamin's help I was able to do it. He wisely started a bit slower - evenly paced 5:22. I considered pulling alongside to urge a faster pace, but decided against it figuring perhaps Benjamin was sensing something. This was after all a safe bet - if all I had in me was 10:50, this would get me there, but if I really had 10:40, then I would be able to kick. It turned out to be the latter. We ran 81, 81, 80 for the next three quarters, at which I went from wanting to run faster to just hanging on and praying for adrenaline. In the last 0.25 my prayer for adrenaline was answered again and I found a 76 quarter closing the gap on the 5:20 guy and hitting the target time of 10:40. I was happy about being able to close with 5:18 for the last mile.

This is my fastest time on that course in almost 2 years, a PR for the year, PR for past 46, and PR as a father of 11. Maybe I should add PR as a father of a return missionary as well to keep myself motivated. Benjamin is also working on giving me a chance for decent grandfather PRs - he went on a date right after the run.

In the evening I had a very interesting run with Matthew. He started out complaining he was not feeling good, but still opened the mile with 2:00 quarter. Then in the second quarter a dog growled at him, and he ran 1:53. On the way back that same dog chased us, so the next quarter was 1:45. In the last quarter, he still had the adrenaline pumping from the dog chase, so he ran it in 1:41 with 7:18 for the mile. I wish USATF rules allowed specially trained chase dogs during the 8 and under division races :-)

Jenny 11:55.83 - suffered from shin splints and side pain, but toughed it out. First lap in 92, then more or less even 96.

Julia 13:27.41 - fastest time this year. Another improvement. Splits were around 1:37 at 400, then 3:20 at 800, 5:05 (1:45), 6:54 (1:49), 8:45 (1:49), then 12:32 at 2800 (3:47, 1:53 avg), and then 55 seconds for the last 200. So she still lost a lot in the second half due to the inability to maintain the focus and keep the right leg turnover, but at least she ran OK in the first half. We need to practice making the normal leg turnover natural enough that she can maintain it when tired.

Joseph - 10:27.49 PR. I was very concerned about him after his DNF in a workout on Tuesday and given that he struggles to run his best when his younger brother Jacob is beating him. But he found enough humility in himself today to run a PR. He and Jacob worked together with William Horne to keep a decent pace as they each ran a PR today and pulled Cole Jameson to a PR as well. I gave them the instruction to run 83s which they followed almost perfectly. They had 82,84,81,83,84 for the first 5 laps. Then Joseph and Cole started struggling and fell back a couple of seconds, but hung on enough to get PRs (Cole ended up with 10:29.08). But still, 3:33 last 1 K at altitude is something I am happy with for Joseph.

Jacob 10:21.42 PR - splits were 82,84,81,83,84,84,84, and 39 for the last 200. In the third kilometer he kept the pace hot, and even at one point gapped the pack, but in the last lap due to his small size and a young age (he is still 12) could not kick as well as William Horne (10:16.25 PR) and Tyler Stoker (10:15.85, racing in 15-16 division). But still, great PR, last 1 K in 3:27, nearly perfect splits (3:26, 3:28, 3:27), and some show of character as well as tactical skill in the last 1 K - he knew he would not have a chance in the kick against older kids so he went for a gap at the place where it hurts the worst. With that he was able to run down two kids in the older divisions + his older brother Joseph - though he can outkick Joseph on a good day, but Joseph is behind in growth, so it does not really count quite the same. Things are looking good for sub-10:00 at the nationals in Sacramento for Jacob, and maybe even for Joseph with a little bit some combination of growth spurt and mental toughness.

Our William - 11:28.97, a second off his PR, but this is the fastest he has ever run in a meet. Ran most of the race in no man's land - the kids in front were too fast, and behind were too slow. 2:59 at 800, 6:05 at 1600, 7:37 at 2000. So more or less even 92s after the first two laps, but he should have been able to run 90s based on his workout on Tuesday. But that was Tuesday in a workout in a pack, and today was a meet running most of the race alone. So maybe at the nationals we can get him to run sub-11:00.

Day 2 in Bozeman. I did a total of only a little over 10 so that I would be alert on the late drive back home.

Joseph and Jacob raced the 1500. Joseph got 4:56.25 (3rd), Jacob 4:55.26 (2nd). William Horne won their race with 4:49.80. Both Joseph and Jacob were tired from the 3000 the night before, but they still were able to run respectably.

In the 800 Stephen ran 2:57.60 (3rd). Kenny Briggs won his race with 2:41.63. Matthew ran 3:17.36 (2nd). Luke Foote won his race with 2:58.80. I told Stephen - run with Kenny for the first 300, then do whatever you want. Well he did run with Kenny for the first 300 like I told him in around 1:00, and then he just relaxed and coasted at around 92 per lap pace. Matthew is still struggling with the idea that he either has to be winning the race or else he just gives up. It did not help that he was in the heat where the ages went up to 12 years old. So he did not put in a whole lot of effort once he saw he would not be winning the heat.

Eventful day. Total of about 12. First Benjamin paced me through 2 miles in 10:46 (5:24, 5:22). The original target was 11:00 but I was feeling good and told him 81s (5:24 pace) was OK. Then he did his own 2 mile tempo in 9:41 while I ran with him the first 0.5 in 2:24. I gave him a target of 72s (4:48 pace) "till the standard bearer fainteth". "The standard bearer" doubted some in the middle, but as evidenced by the last 0.5 did not faint. His splits were 71,73,72,74 (4:50),76,74,72,69 (4:51). This was only 8 seconds slower than his pre-mission PR of 9:33.

I suppose some clarification is in order. Technically this 2 mile run is not a tempo run - more of a 2 mile time trial. But I call it a tempo run anyway - while you are running it you are dreaming about being able to run the half at that pace. And it often happens that eventually you get there - because 90% of the battle of the half is to be able to hold your target pace for 2 miles with even splits. Once you can, with relatively small adaptations you can develop the endurance to race the full distance.

Then we ran with Rachael Moody, her son Adam, her friend Amy Thackeray, and our boys. Matthew and Adam raced each other in the mile. Matthew got a PR of 6:52.4. Adam got 7:04. Then we did an 800 where Adam's job was to run all out in the first 400 to make Stephen work, but Adam must have been tired from the mile because he could only run 92. Stephen did 90, 90, but he was suffering as well - not sure from what. Perhaps he expected to run 84 in the first lap, and then relax and coast in the second, and after the first unevenly paced 90 he just was not mentally prepared to work.

Joseph, Jacob, and William ran the 800 a bit faster, Joseph and Jacob around 2:50, William 2:55, all from the second lap.

Total of 12. Did a workout with the boys today. First we paced William through 2 miles down the canyon in 11:58 (5:55, 6:03). He had some mental struggles in the second mile slowing down to a couple of 94s, but then he found 84 in the last quarter.

Stephen learned a lesson today - I hope. Usually when our kids do a fast workout they get a popsicle. After the first 0.5 in 2:56 Stephen started moaning and dropping back. I told him he had to keep up and make it to 0.75 to get his popsicle. He said he did not want one. So he finished the interval in 4:32 and did not get his popsicle. I think it is important for the kids to learn to not to give up on the goal in the middle of trying to reach it.

Then we did another interval with Benjamin, Joseph, and Jacob. The target was 1.25 at 5:20 mile pace. Benjamin paced it. Jacob and I were able to keep up and finished in 6:40. Joseph, however, started moaning around 0.3 and just stopped - even though I told him I wanted him to slow down to 5:36 and finish the interval. So Benjamin and I talked to him afterwards about the importance of enduring to the end.

Total of 16. Paced Julia through 1.25 down the canyon in 8:14, then ran the same 1.25 with Benjamin and Joseph in 6:39, then Benjamin pulled me through 3 miles down the canyon in 16:26.9.

Joseph redeemed himself from the last 2 DNFs in the same workout. His attitude was different. Before the start of the interval he asked if we could say a prayer, and he prayed for the strength to do his best. During the interval he struggled, but was able to focus on what mattered and keep the pace.

I was also happy with my interval. Benjamin pulled me through the first mile in 5:27, which did not feel easy. The second mile was 5:30, and it felt hard. I was not sure if I had another 5:30 in me, but I found it thanks to the last 0.25 in 79. Again I prayed during the last mile that I would have the adrenaline to hold the pace, and I was able to find it.

I think I am learning how to ask the for right thing when running. You potentially could ask for a lot of things - e.g. to be able to run the next mile under 1 minute. The Lord does have the power to give you that speed, but in His wisdom does not give it. Why not? Perhaps because it would defeat the purpose of running as a form of spiritual development. It is supposed to be hard. You are supposed to reach deep into your spiritual pockets to find even minor physical improvements. That is why we run. That is why we value being able to run fast. So you cannot ask for something that takes you out of those bounds. To compare this to Nephi's experience, you cannot ask the Lord to build the ship for you, but you can ask where to go to find the ore so that you can make the tools.

It appears from my experience that asking for the adrenaline when I am at my limit falls within the allowed bounds. Not exactly sure why. Perhaps because once it comes, I still have to have the faith to use it. Perhaps also because I have paid the price to know what I need out of my body that is in relatively close reach - though I have tried to get it out in the past unsuccessfully on many occasions.

In any case, this was my fastest time on this course in more than 2 years.

Some of the kids ran in the 1500 at the Orem High meet. It was hot, they all felt sluggish, so the times were slow:

Murray Fun Days 5K, 18:11, 12th overall, 5th master. Teren won with 15:47, Benjamin was second with 15:58.

Jacob got 18:03, Joseph 18:27, William 19:53, Stephen 22:14.

I was expecting a faster time, but just did not have it today. Possibly I need more uphill training as 5:50 was all I could do in the first mile and it wore me out some, and then the uphill at the start of the third mile was hard as well and I never recovered from it.

Joseph and Jacob were with me in the first mile, then Joseph dropped back, but Jacob pulled ahead. Neither one of them was feeling super great either, but Joseph quite a bit worse than Jacob. Hopefully the race will go better in Draper Days for all three of us, as well as William and Stephen.

Benjamin, on the other hand, outdid my expectations. Based on his workouts, and knowing the course, I was expecting about 16:10-16:20. After seeing him get dropped by Teren and Mark Currell, I thought 16:20 would be very nice and that he would not run 16:30 or slower. However, he found another gear after the first mile, passed Mark shortly after two and even started shaking his fist at Teren finishing only 11 seconds back. His splits were 5:12, 5:10, then with the 3 second adjustment in mile 3 - 5:05, and 31 seconds for the last 0.107 (last mile split includes my adjustments, going off the mark it would have been 5:08 and 28, regardless, 5:03 average for 1.107).

Looking at this I am now wondering if Benjamin is having a hard time feeling what he really has in him as his body has experienced some changes on his mission. There ran 6 miles a day most days with some track workouts which were usually 12x400 with the target of 72 or a 3000 time trial which was usually done in around 9:40, fastest 9:28. One time he pulled off a solo 5000 in 16:14. All of this was getting done with an asterisk that he was budgeting his energy for a 12 hour proselyting day ahead, so he never really pushed the workout like he would have under normal recovery conditions.

I think he is quite a bit stronger than he used to be both physically and mentally, but he does not yet know how to properly use his strength.

But clearly, in retrospect, if he could run the last 1.107 mile segment, which is hilly, at 5:03 pace alone, there was no reason for him to drop back from Teren and Mark in the first mile.

Bonnie paced Stephen for her training run and felt the pace was quite easy. Nevertheless, he was having some mental struggles and could not really get going. Hopefully things will go better for him in Draper Days.

Easy runs for everybody, total of 12 for me. Usual distances for everybody, I believe. Matthew ran a big boy course PR trying to show off to our friend Preston who is 16. Preston is athletic, but not a runner. So the pace was hard for him, which our 6 year old Matthew did not fail to notice.

Total of about 16. Did 2x3 miles, first on a loop course in the canyon in 17:35.9, second in 16:55.6 down the canyon. However, split this into AM and PM runs because Benjamin was not feeling good in the morning. He has always had some issues with his nervous system, but I think they got more pronounced after his mission, which was greatly visible today. So in the AM he paced me through a 3 mile tempo going 0.75 uphill, 1.5 down, and then 0.75 back up. The target was 90s on the way up, 84s on the way down. So on the way up we were OK - 4:28. On the way back down, he was not hitting the pace - we got only 8:33, 85 average, but I figured I would need the energy once we turned around, so I did not ask him to up it. Then we turned around, his assignment was to run 75s uphill for the last 0.75, and he just was not himself - could only do 4:19 averaging about 86. At that point, I had Joseph and Jacob take over and pull me, so I ran that stretch in 4:34. I was happy with my finish time, and was rather perplexed - the course was quite a bit slower than Murray Fun Days, and yet I ran the same pace, which means I should have been good 10-15 seconds faster in the race that I was on Thursday.

We originally planned on doing another 3 mile tempo down the canyon afterwards, but Benjamin was just not feeling up to it - even at my pace. So we decided to postpone it until the evening after Benjamin had had a chance to take a nap.

When we got home I added 2 miles with the kids. We had a visitor - Adam Moody. Matthew decided to show off and ran a course PR on the big boy course in 7:07.8.

A nap followed by a date with a girl produced a miraculous transformation in Benjamin. In the evening he paced me for the first 2 miles at 5:39,5:39 and then shifted gears and started going in the last mile. His assignment was to break 5:00 if he felt up to it, and if he really felt up to it, break 4:50. As I watched him disappear into oblivion I timed his first quarter of the last mile and saw 70. I had to do a double take - is that the boy that struggled to run 5:40 pace earlier this morning? So I finished my last mile in 5:37 (16:55 for 3), and asked him if his last mile was 4:45. Turns out it was 4:40 - so his total time was 15:58.

Did 3x1.25 in the AM in the canyon - down 6:50, up 7:37, down 6:47. 0.25 recovery after the first, 0.5 recovery after the second. Benjamin paced me through the first, then ran the second uphill hard in 6:36, then paced me through the third. Jacob ran the second one with me. Joseph scored another DNF - made it only to about half way. He complained that his stomach was hurting, but I still wanted him to end the workout on a good note, so he ran 0.5 down in 2:40 - a bit ahead of me in my third interval so he would at least get something for the day. William did 2x0.5 2:43, 2:41. Stephen did 2x0.25 both in 81.

Jacob and I had an odd experience in the uphill interval. We started with 87, then ran 92, then it got even worse and we averaged 94 for the next two quarters. Then in the last quarter we shifted gears and ran 90. Benjamin had similar issues as well. It did not feel like there was a huge headwind, but for some reason all of us struggled on the uphill today.

Adventurous day today. First we tried a race William against Stephen over 3 miles down the canyon with William starting 1 minute behind. It did not go very well for Stephen as he threw a fit and stopped shortly after the mile - his mile split was 6:33. Jacob and William passed us and I joined them. William - paced by Jacob - ended up with 18:22 (6:07, 6:12, 6:03).

Then it was Joseph's chance for redemption in the uphill 1.25, which he did not take. After the first 0.5 in 3:10 he slowed down to basically a jog, and then shortly after - not even reaching the mile - just quit - again. I told Benjamin to pull me to 2 miles so I could get some kind of a workout, and after the first mile in 6:25 we ran 5:51, which gave us 12:16. I was happy that I found 5:51 on the uphill in myself.

Benjamin earlier ran 3 miles down the canyon in 14:54 (4:56, 5:04, 4:54). I was happy to see that except for the 5:04 - his target was 5:00 pace.

Joseph punished himself for his DNF. First he went to the wrong park forgetting where we had parked. Benjamin and I ran back, did not see him, assumed he just ran home. Then came home, he was not there. We assumed he had come home and was hiding somewhere as he often does after a bad workout. After a couple of hours we still could not find him. So we drove back to the Canyon Glen Park, and found him there. He just sat there and waited - instead of running home. He learned that quitting during a workout and then not following Dad and his brothers results in natural consequences - no breakfast :-)

I recall my coach in Russia telling me about how Vladimir Kutz used to coach - drop the runners off 12.5 miles away from the base, and tell them lunch is in one hour. So today somewhat on accident Joseph got a bit of the Kutz method.

Today was the day of redemption for Stephen and Joseph. Which meant some extra fast running for me and Benjamin, and Jenny as well. Stephen's target was 6:40 pace down the canyon for 3 miles. He ran the first one in 6:37, then slowed down to 7:20, and then just threw a fit and stopped. In the evening he behaved better and was able to run 12:55 (6:24, 6:31) for 2 miles down the canyon in spite of the 85F temperature (though it was not as bad in the shade). This was also a good run for Jenny as she has struggled with shin splints and side pain and had not been doing very much fast running lately.

Joseph also redeemed himself by running 7:48 for 1.25 up the canyon.

Jacob and William ran easy. Julia has been trying something new. She runs at around 7:40 pace focusing on high leg turnover. Once she reaches the point where she feels she cannot maintain the turnover, instead of going into a plod, she takes a break for 30 seconds or so, and then continues.

Total of over 18. Eventful day. First we paced Julia down the canyon for 1.25 in 7:58. Looks like her training routine is working, she improved by 16 seconds from two weeks ago. Then Benjamin had the assignment to run 5:00 pace for 3 miles with the idea that Joseph, Jacob, and I would follow him until we could not or got to the mile. However, those plans did not quite materialize. Benjamin pulled us through the first quarter in 76, but then slowed down to 78. Something was wrong. Joseph and Jacob passed him, I hesitated for long enough for Jacob to open a gap, and then passed him also, but could never catch Jacob after that. Jacob ended up with 5:04 for the mile, I got 5:08. Joseph stopped at 0.75 (3:50). Benjamin just ran a bit faster than 5:12 pace for 3 miles and finished in 15:35. He explained later that he felt this was the right pace for his workout today and did not want to open in 5:00 and then either stop or deal with the fallout of having to run the rest of it after this kind of start.

Afterwards we did another 2 mile tempo down the canyon. I initially asked for 5:44 pace, but after the first 100 decided I wanted 5:36. Benjamin pulled me through the first mile in 5:38. I kept telling him to speed up until he finally sped up to 5:20 over the last 0.5 or so. We ended up with 5:27 for the second mile and 11:05 for 2 miles.

Then I ran with Matthew when we got home, and added a bit more than 4 with Jenny later in the evening.

Day of rest. Went to church. My entries for Sunday have been like that lately because by the time I get around to writing the Sunday entry I usually forget the details of that day. However, I can be sure of two things on a Sunday - that I went to church, and that I did not run - except to church if I was late, which is often the case, and was the case this day. It was an eventful Sunday, though. We had a joint family gospel study with one family, and then had friends over for dinner. I felt tired all day, not sure exactly why, but started feeling better at night after drinking some pickle juice.

Total of about 12. 2 mile tempo run down the canyon with Joseph and Jacob. The target was 11:00. I paced it. First mile was 5:27. Then Joseph dropped back (he ran the last mile in 5:44 - 11:11). Jacob stayed with me but was struggling. I think I must have eased off subconsciously because of that - the next three quarters were 83, 83, 85. Jacob fell back a bit. I finished with 80 for the last quarter, Jacob was a bit back with 10:59 - I think he closed a couple of seconds in the last 200.

Benjamin did 3 miles down the canyon in 14:46 - 4:54, 4:58, 4:54. His assignment was to run sub-5:00 pace with the particular focus on not running slower than 5:00 in the second mile. This is only 4 seconds slower than his course PR of 14:42.

Otherwise more or less usual distances at an easy pace for everybody else.

Draper Days ... well I guess 4 K. The police escort made a mistake and led the runners on the short variant of the course. Several GPSs measured 2.5, so we will go with that for the distance. My time was 14:05, 21st overall, 7th master. I ran conversions using Riegel formula, so here is the top 25 of the race:

I ran most of the race with Jacob. First mile or so with Mark Payne, then a bit with Dennis, then when I realized we had taken a wrong turn, I lost motivation, and tried to regain it for the rest of the race. I was able to outkick Jacob at the end - the pace ended up too hot for him. Joseph dropped back I think around the first mile or so.

If we are to accept Riegel's equivalents, we end up with 20:16.44, 16 seconds short of our ambitious goal of 20:00 average time with 8 people. Benjamin got a road and altitude PR - he was with Teren and Mark Boyle about 3 K into the race, then they separated - Mark really moved on the uphill.

In Sacramento. Got whatever runs we could whenever we had a chance.

Matthew ran 3:13.30 for 27th in 7-8 division. Opened in 92.34, then 1:41.06 for the second lap. A bit off his time trial, and also 800 split in a 1500 PR, but as far as a race 800 is concerned, this is a PR. He still does not know how to race and loses focus easily. Obviously if he could run 3:11 and then finish the 1500, he should be able to run at least 3:05, but in order for that to happen there needs to be somebody running 3:08 that he feels is vulnerable enough for him to catch, and the next boy in front of him in his heat ran 2:56.

Stephen ran 800 in 2:57.84, 37th place in 9-10. Opened in 84.34, but then slowed down to 93.50 in the second lap, and missed his PR. We still have a lot of work to do on focus and fighting to the end.

Again ran whenever I could fit it in. Joseph and Jacob raced today in the 1500 (both in the 13-14 division) and both got a PR. They ended up in the same heat and worked very well together. Joseph ended up with 4:47.03, splits:

54.815 (54.815) 2:12.718 (1:17.904) 3:29.623 (1:16.905) 4:47.034 (1:17.411)

Jacob was right behind him with 4:49.08 in 37th, splits:

Still in Sacramento. Measured out a course on the trail near the VRBO with a wheel for intervals. First did 2x0.25 with William - 85 into the wind, 82 the other way. Joseph, Jacob and Benjamin did 78 and 74. Then did 6x0.625 with 0.125 recovery alternating directions. There was significant wind introducing a difference of about 5-10 seconds for the interval (8-16 seconds per mile) between directions. I did 3:31.0, 3:22.9, 3:29.4, 3:25.8, 3:37.8, 3:25.5. Benjamin pulled me in the first 4, then did the last 2 at his own pace - 3:02 into the wind, and 2:52 the other way.

Then we took Jenny, Julia, and Stephen and had them run 0.375 in the aided direction. Jenny did 2:03, Stephen 2:05, and Julia 2:20. Stephen just baffles me - why could he do that in the race two days ago? With that effort he would have broken 2:50. He said he was dehydrated, and perhaps that was indeed what slowed him down.
