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.

So, I finally got sucked into the whole"blogging" community. I have been running 5 miles a day since the beginning of December. Thought maybe this would help my times get a little faster, although I really only run for fun and weight loss! Today I got up and ran 4.5 on the treadmill with little girls watching TVand a sick baby crying- had to cut it a little short.

Dave drove me out 5 miles and I ran back through Middleton home. Pretty good run and great weather. Ended up with avg pace of 11:35, which is faster than I go on the treadmill. Quite a few more hills than the 1% incline on the treadmill!

Got up at 6:30 and ran on the treadmill. I was only going to go 5 but I felt really good, and 2 of my 3 girls were still sleeping, so I felt like going longer. It took me 1:09:00 but I think I have only gone 6 one other time, so I feel good. It feels so good to get up and run!

Up at 6:30 again and ran on the treadmill for an hour. Average pace was 12. Felt pretty good but I am tired.

Woke up to run at 6:30. Probably easiest morning to get up in a long time. Decided to run 6 since the girls were being good. It took me the same as the other day, 1:09:00.Feels good to push myself  and go a little further!

Decided that 6 is a little better for me to go consistently. Its not too much more but it gives me a little extra. My shins started to hurt yesterday afternoon and a little this morning, so I think it is time for some new shoes! Guess I will go make Steve a visit at the store.

Ran outside today! Did a 6 mile loop around Washington. Mile 5 was pretty much up hill the whole thing so I walked a bit. My legs were tired. I think upping my miles this week was good but today was hard. I did get some new shoes yesterday from Steve. They felt really good on the run. Thanks Steve!

Ran 5 on the treadmill today. My shins were hurting so I thought I should go a little less. I want to go 6 tomorrow. Kind of a boring run. Mondays are always hard for me.

Got up early and ran on the treadmill. Didnn't go yesterday because my shins hurt, and I didn't want to make them worse. Ran 5 pretty slow miles today. It sure is hard to go when you only miss 1 day. Felt good to run though.

Decided to run later this morning. After my dad and sister and nephew left (very sad) I ran 6 on the treadmill. I felt really good and decided to go 6 today and 5 tomorrow since Saturdays I am usually tired. Now, I just need to pick up Rylee from school and then I get to clean my house!  Time 1:08:40 (better than the other day!)

Another 5 miler on the treadmill. I feel like I am in a slump and not really wanting to run. Not seeing the results I want to see. Oh well, I will hang in there. Maybe next week I can get some more miles in.

Well, I have a renewed energy. Decided to get ready for the Spectrum 10k. My plan this week is to run 5 Mon, Wed, Friday- then go 6 on Tues, Thurs and Sat. I felt really good this morning, actually  excited to get up and run. My sister and Dad are coming down today for the week. I am excited to spend time with them, maybe even get some runs in outside! Glad to have Dave home today!    Time: 58:00

Probably the best run I have had in a while. Ran 6 on the treadmill in 1:10:00. Not too fast but I feel good. I am glad I did it!

Didn't quite get to my 5 mile, had a crying little girl that wouldn't let me finish. Oh well. Felt pretty good other than my churning stomach from probably eating at Chuck-a-rama last night!

Not a great morning. I was dead after being up all night with sick kids, only getting 4 consistent hours of sleep. I will be so glad when cold season is over! Only had the energy to run 3 and it was all I could do to do that much. Bad morning. Maybe I will get a chance later to run a little more.

I don't know what the deal is with me lately, but I have no desire and energy to run. I know it will pass. Tomorrow I will make myself go 5. Better night with sleeping kids did help, now I just need the desire back.
