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.

Welcome to the blog! How fun to have another running widow on the blog. Great job at Painters, too--that's quite an improvement!

Welcome to the blog. I've been trying to get my wife on, she has been doing 30 minutes a day on the treadmill for the last two weeks, but she isn't ready to start blogging I guess.

Anyway, thanks for being so supportive and allowing Dave to come and run with us.

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!

I am not really ready for track. This years tract season is going be weird, bceause I work. So I can only stay the whole practice three out of the five days. I don't know what I want to throw yet and if I want to do the mile and two mile. I don't really like running in cycles.

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!

You have definetely got in some good miles this week. I bet that was so nice to run outside. I really hate the treadmill but its better than nothing, right?

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.

Did that stuff help at all? Keep using through the week and see if it makes a difference.

From James Holt on Wed, Feb 13, 2008 at 17:05:18

Just dont go more than a day or two not running. Starting up after that is a lot harder. Anytime you want to band practice let us know.

From dave holt on Wed, Feb 13, 2008 at 20:42:58

I heard some sort of band practice on my run today - I was out in Bloom Hills and heard what I thought was drumming, and sure enough in a couple of blocks, there was a full on drumline practicing. Whatever!?

It will happen - you are doing great, way more consistent than most people. The results will show up.

From Mike Warren on Sat, Feb 16, 2008 at 21:03:46

Anything worth having is hard to get! But nothing is better than finally getting it. Your results will come! I feel the same way, especially when I run with Dave, you know slow. But then when I compare my results to 7-8 months prior, it's pretty cool. Hang in there, you are building a good foundation to put those new results on! I know kinda korny, but Dr. Phil gets away with it, why not me too!

I had a fun time running this race. I decided I like 10k's better than 5k's. My splits were 1, 10:00/2, 11:15/3,10:46/4,11:08/5,11:44/6,10:55.  I got under the time that I wanted, so that was good. Dave came back and ran with me from about 4.5 to the finish. That helped alot (mostly because I couldn't walk as much as I wanted to!) I felt really good, and the new songs I added to my ipod sure did help. I really liked the aid stations. The only way those could have been better is if they had a Diet Coke for me!

1.2  Ran with Laney in the jogging stroller while other 2 girls were at school. It was fun and so nice outside, so I had to get out! Pushing that stroller is hard, so we only went a little over 1.

Thanks for the welcoming! Dustin has been bugging me like crazy to get my own blog. Like I said I am just starting so I am slow and low miles. But I hope to get in shape soon!

From Superfly on Wed, Mar 19, 2008 at 20:28:33

Ally I just remembered that I never got back to you about the diet cherry vanilla chocolate Dr. Pepper! What do you mean it sounds gross.... I'm not a diet fan but other than that part it sounds amazing. If I buy one for you will you try it so I can live vicariously through you. I need someone to try it for me and Mik'L won't. Ask Dave if he will?

Anyways sorry it took me so long to get back on this one.

From Superfly on Tue, Mar 25, 2008 at 12:58:44

Just get that guy better...Sorry to hear that he has pneumonia. That's pretty crazy. Anyways I beat you to the Dr. Pepper taste test. I normally don't drink soda but Mik'L's mom had one at her house and I tried a mouth full...

Not bad at all. It's only flaw is that it's diet. The diet left the rotten after taste, but if your a diet fan you might like it.

so, just as I am increasing my miles, I get a dumb injury (I guess you can call it that!) I am taking a WSI class so I can teach swimming lessons again this summer (I taught last summer but I wasn't certified) The class started yesterday afternoon and goes for 2 weeks. I took the class 11 years ago in high school, so I am the oldest in the class, but at least I am a good swimmer! Anyway, we swam laps yesterday and I totally jacked up the back/ side of my knee. It hurt really bad last night and this morning so I am not going to run today. Hopefully it will cooperate tonight at my class and i can run again tomorrow.I have been wintercresting it up all day. That 7 miler  yesterday and swimming for 2 hours did me in!

I decided on Friday to run the Cotton Days 10k. Didn't really train up for it, but I had been running. Ran over with James to the start. Not very many people at all. It was a fun course all except running back up the fire station hill. I ran up half, then walked the rest. I didn't want to wear myself out and not be able to run the rest without stopping. James came back after his big win, and ran with me the last .5. Thank you James. That really helped me. I finished about 3 minutes faster than the spectrum a few months ago. I really like doing 10ks. It is a good distance for me. I had a lot of fun and am looking forward to the next one!

Don't be discourage by the days that it is tough to get up and going. We all go through stages. You hit some great mileage the other week, so running 7 each day will come.

I know some people don’t use the discussion board of the blog so I’m posting this comment on everyone’s blog that has updated in the last few days or so to bring your attention to both the discussion section and the mileage board. Please read the discussion here (http://fastrunningblog.com/forum/index.php/topic,324.0.html) and then vote here (http://fastrunningblog.com/forum/index.php/topic,348.0.html) if you have an opinion.

Good job in getting four in when you didn't want to run at all! I'm sure you feel some great satisfaction in getting four more than most of the world's people out there!

only a tiny 3 on the treadmill. Long 3 miles!  I just have had little energy all week. This is my lowest mileage week in a long time. I will get back into it next week. I have to!

I like running on treadmills when the weather isn't so great. It just always seems that I've run farther than I have. But thats cool that you can find the energy to do that.

From Kim on Sat, Jun 07, 2008 at 21:32:50

Even with low energy this week you still got four days in! Have a nice rest day and then good luck with a new week!
