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.

I really didn't want to run today and made a lot of excuses not to, but in the end my guilt won out and I found my way to the treadmill.  My plan to run 5 or until the baby woke up which ever came first.  It was a LONG run (didn't really enjoy any of it) and I made it to 5 miles and then almost instantly the baby woke up - perfect timing!  Glad to have it done.

Did an hour of aerobics/toning and then walked one mile on the treadmill.  I have absolutely NO upper body strength - it's pretty sad!

Quite sore this morning from all the toning yesterday.  I like being sore because it makes me feel like I have really worked my body.  Walked 3 miles on the treadmill and finished "The Last Lecture"  an excellent read.

After a weekend of eating everything in sight, I got my fat behind on the treadmill this afternoon.  It felt good to work up a sweat and to push myself to run a little faster.  5 miles felt great!

Started out just walking on an incline because my right foot hurt all day yesterday.  Quickly got bored with that and started running.  Happy to be on my way to St. George for the long weekend!

Can I just say that I LOVE running in St. George. Went out with my mom and her friend this morning. We started out up in Kayenta and then ran through Ivins and to Santa Clara. It was beautiful! There's nothing quite like the smell after rain in St. George - wonderful! So happy to have reached 6 miles today - a record since my pregnancy.

Had a wonderful Easter/Spring Break weekend in St. George with family.  It's hard to be back in the "real world" today.  Got the boys' off to preschool and the baby down for a nap and put in 4 miles on the treadmill.  Wore my new shoes (my birthday gift from Matt and the boys).  They felt good, but different.  It may take a few runs to really feel comfortable in them.

Decided to try my new shoes again today - added my insoles and they felt better.  Had to jump off the treadmill a few times to solve problems with the kids.  The baby woke up as I was finishing my last lap - how's that for timing.

Had a quick trip to St. George for the weekend to judge a dance competition.  After all that sitting my legs were in serious need of a workout.  Did 4 miles on the treadmill and felt great.  Started picking up the pace a bit, which is nice to see.

Told myself I was going to go hard this morning.  I ran 5 miles in 53:52, which a a PR for me since having my baby.  It felt good to push a little harder and I was thrilled to end with that time.  The new shoes are starting to feel better, which is good.

Planned on doing an easy 3 miler today, but got busy cleaning the house and it never happened.  Finally tonight the kids wanted to watch a movie so I walked on the treadmill.  At least it's better than nothing!

So excited to run outside this morning.  It was a little wet, but no rain.  However, there were so many gross worms out that it was hard to avoid them all - yuck!  Just 3 of us this morning and I felt like we kept a pretty good pace.  Now I'm off to soccer - should be entertaining!

Was excited to get up and run this morning.  Ate way too many tacos at my sister's house last night!  Had all three kids  playing while I ran, and they did amazingly well.  Finished in 43:11, which is okay.

Got up and going earlier this morning.  Felt good to be on the treadmill at 8:00 instead of 10:00.  Ran 5 miles, however had all 3 kiddos and had to jump off a few times to help the baby.  Was rather sore from my circuit training yesterday, but felt good.
