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.

Slept in and woke up to another rainy day. Family still a little under the weather so I headed out for a longer slow run. Can't believe it is Jan 3 and I'm running in shorts and a t-shirt in the rain! Felt nice out there today. Have not been consistent with my running so this half really felt hard.

It has been 1 year since I've raced. Very unbelievable. This has been my longest break since I started running. However, today was my name sake's run so I could not pass it up. I honestly went into this run thinking 80 min wouldn't be beyond expectations and if stars aligned maybe in the 70s. But the weather was perfect and when I step on the line a switch goes off and I'm in the zone. I did approach it the same as last year, starting a few rows back and slowly picking people off the first couple miles. With the field ahead further dwindling as people turn back for the 5K and 10K turnarounds. But after the 10K turnaround and I realized I was in 3rd place something took over. I just pushed and somehow kept pushing. I did drop my glove and one point and thought there was someone within striking distance at 8 miles but by the finish I was running more than solo and the only entertainment was passing the 10K runners. The same Utah guy as last year beat me, this time in 2nd by only a few seconds to a much younger runner. I am so happy I did this race and cannot believe my time, my place, and how I felt while running with what my training has been.

A break does you good, makes you long for something that once was, and makes you hungry for more. Great race:)

Family miles. Girls finished there Mercedes Marathon Jr. 26.2 mile in 26 weeks with the final mile on the Marathon course this morning. It was amazing how they got a few thousand kids to line up and run. They went in waves by grade. With grades separated by 10 min so no one was trampled. I did the mile with each of the girls plus running around before, between, and after. The a full family day.

Well, not the best use of time. Was not very efficient last night but had deadlines so was up until 3AM. Problem was I had to be in work before 6AM... So got what I needed done then came up and did a run with Sandra before a short nap and then worked a bit more. Sometimes it is fun to mix up the schedule.

Glad to see you had a great Saturday.

Heart rate is scary to me. Glad you know what you are doing. My friend had her doctor change her heart meds so she can follow the following. Is it really "good science"?

ORANGETHEORY FITNESS PHILOSOPHY

THE SCIENCE OF THE ORANGETHEORY WORKOUT

The physiological theory behind the Orangetheory workout is known as “Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption,” or EPOC. By providing you with a heart-rate monitor and POD, we can monitor your 5-zone interval training sessions that we call the Orange 60. During the 60-minute workout, you will perform multiple intervals designed to produce 12 to 20 minutes of training at 84% or higher of your maximum heart rate, which translates to Zones 4/5. This program design produces workout "afterburn" effect, which is an increased metabolic rate for 24 to 36 hours after the workout. When combing the amazing workout with EPOC, our clients burn an average of 500 to 1000 calories.

The Orangetheory workout will produce increased muscle Endurance, Strength and Power and if desired, tremendous weight loss. With energetic music, a talented group of fitness coaches and a high-energy studio, you have the recipe for a workout that produces BIG and LASTING results.

Got to sleep in a little, even with the time change. Then church and a little family time before hitting the work. With how much time I give to it you'd think I'd get more done. That said a friend from the church/neighborhood was also working late and convinced me for a late night run in the rain. Luckily it stayed above 50F so it didn't feel bad. Bryan can always push the pace on me though. We did see an armadillo.

Then the day was about as perfect as you could ask for 70F and sunny so we spent the day at the playground and pound fishing. I did have a work dinner tonight but just squeezed in a very very pleasant 5.5 mi in perfect temps, low 50s... Even saw three deer.

Doing well with the usual business of work, family, church, etc. Nearly have two teenagers which makes life challenging but good.

And you?

Can't complain. Sounds like I'm juggling the same balance, but my kids are still in single digit ages. I did just take the day off to go on a field trip with my youngest so that was a good change of pace.

Got some sleep. Then did a 2 mile run with the family before hitting the road for another 14 miles. This was a big day for me mileage wise. Unfortunately when I got back my Garmin did a software update and erased this weeks runs... So not sure what my pace was. I will say it warmed up fast and I was definitely feeling the heat. It is also cool how this neighborhood works as I saw probably about a dozen people during the run and new about half of them from church, school, or immediate neighborhood.

Have a great weekend!

Even though I could have slept in a little because of the 8AM start to the race I still woke up before 5AM. To top it off I have had allergies/cold since Wednesday and a few sleepless nights from coughing. So I was not feeling the best before the start.

Josh drove me to the finish that is were we took a bus to the start. Now in Utah that would mean fast, but this course was anything but fast. It was hilly, misty, and mid-60s at the start. The idea is that we run from the Vulcan statue to the Lady Liberty.

I really wasn't sure what to expect. You can tell by my jacked up heart rate that something wasn't fully firing. My plan was to maintain the pace I had at the 10-miler back in February. That would have put me at 6:37 pace. This is a shorter but tougher course. However, my slightly better training this last month had me hopeful and I really wanted sub-6:30 pace.

 

I did a 2-mile warm-up with some good surges and then was ready to move. I managed to fight for 7th the entire race. With one person passing me, me passing another, and then a third guy going back and forth with me twice but I had the final downhill mile (and youth) on my side. There were kegs at the finish and a jump house for the girls who surprised me by showing up at the finish. So we hung out for about an hour before heading home. Overall it was a good start to the weekend after a tough week. It was a record attendance for the race with their first year over 600 entrants.

Josh, thanks for driving and sticking around for the rewards.

Once the family began to stir we did our usual park loops of a run/bike family affair for 3 miles and then I continued on to meet my mileage goal for the week.

Strange morning out. Very pretty sunrise in a very cloudy sky. The wind was doing some very interesting things with these wispy clouds. It was so humid that it was really raining down just condensing before your eyes. It lead to a beautiful rainbow. With a mile to go it did start pouring the most refreshing cold rain. Happy Friday.

Sounds beautiful. We experienced similar conditions by a waterfall 30 meters taller than Niagra in Quebec Friday.

Slept in but paid for it. Ran in what turned out to be the worst part of the day. Even though the temps were mid-70s at the start the RealFell/Heat index was in the mid-90s. I slowed down considerably over the duration of the run. It was also my longest in awhile. With both those things said it felt good to be out there pushing again.

Sleep again. Then in the later evening went for a very nice run. Mostly loops near the pond. But what was nice about it was listening to the frog chorus while watching an amazing heat lightning storm in a partly cloudy sky. Bright moon with lightening, very nice.

Another amazing rain run. It started just before I headed out the door and lasted through mile 3.5. But since the sun was open in the west I also had a rainbow for 7 of the 8 miles. In fact part of the run had a full rainbow. Overall, much nicer running in the rain than in the humidity.

Love running in Boston. Cooler weather and nice flat course. Although it is really just another out and back. Beacon Hill to Harvard.

Nice race around Pleasure Bay finishing in the castle. The American Diabetes Association is one of the bigger meetings I attend in the 10s of thousands. They have a 5K that is actually very well attended. The course was flat and the weather was nice I just didn't quite have it after the higher mileage since arriving here and altered schedule. Had three people pass me in the 2nd mile and 2 more in the final mile. But it was still a good run. Did a two mile warm-up with Kirk.
