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.

AM-Went for 11 miles up to the Ft Union/Sandy bench via Highland Dr in order to escape atleast some of the goop. Finished out the run with 2x400m stride outs in warm up pants at 1:18, 1:15. Completed on the home stretch with 2% downhill. Feeling a little weak in the legs speed wise and tight in the chest still, but much better energy wise overall. Truth of the matter is that I'm getting older and my speed stamina is slowly going bye bye.  I'm having a hard time coming to terms with that as evidenced by some of my crazy training lately!

Time to relax with Kim now for the rest of the day and finish our favorite DVD set; the HBO series "John Adams".   An awesome production and also one of my favorite founding fathers and patriots (next to Jefferson) in our nation's history.   Happy New Years FRB!

Ugly day today... Recovering from viral influenza, lack of sleep and loss of fitness equals crappy performance. The one thing I am happy about is that I finished this race feeling absolutely spent. Toward the end I started gaining some ground on some of the other guys ahead of me but it just wasn't enough.. This was a deep and wickedly competitive field I would have expected maybe during late summer. But at a cold early winter race on an inversion cast day?  My hat goes off to Scott Keate for an incredible race. Jeez.. The bar was not just raised, it was taken up into the stratosphere!  Still.. It definitely inspires me to do better both in training and racing thats for sure.

AM-Easy run on the parkway trail. 8/min/mile pace.  Sticking with a low key slower training pace approach for a while.  The body demands it and besides I'm kind of enjoying my runs more this way right now.

AM-Easy 4.5 miles at 8/min pace.  7th east/State Street.  Wearing the Skechers lately seems right for some reason biomechanically.
