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.

Today was day one of my.....retraining ha, I haven't ran since november so I knew this would be hard, I wasn't even sure how far I would go. Luckily I have someone to train with me (John Coles).  Woke up this morning pretty anxious this morning then looked outside :( After a little self argument on whether to run or not, there was a little rain and looked very cold, we decided to run. John is in much better shape than I am hopefully I didn't slow him down too much. I was actually a little surprised at how I did, don't get me wrong it was super slow but...suprising.  Ended up running 6.3 miles, mile splits were as follow; 7:09, 7:01, 6:42, 9:02, 7:45, 7:26, 2:29 for an overall time of 47:34 which is a 7:33 mile pace average. Our fourth mile was pretty slow because I had to ask John to slow down and we had a hill during this mile. No excuse just saying ha. Then later tonight went to the gym with my cousin to lift (Chest, Triceps, Abs)- I have been lifting with him for about a month now every monday wednesday and friday. I think this will definitetly help in the long run. Theres no pun there either ha. After lifting we did a little cardio cool down, I just ran how I felt for 10mins and got a 1.33 miles, after I felt really good, haven't felt like this at all after lifting, I really believe its because I started running this morning, Oh I also threw the challenge down to my bro who is a frosh at Bingham and running some awesome times, he is in much better shape than I am, but i think I can take him at the SLC 5k in May before I leave on my mish!

woo hoo my first run back. Official! I ran once as you know but then got sick :( I doing a lot better now. So im counting today as my first official run back. I just barely got back. I was planning on doing 20mins easy but i ended up getting a little too far, so instead did 24:35 for 3.37 miles. Its not bad and right now i really don't care I just know this sucks cuz i am butt slow now and wish i hadn't stopped running! Average pace is 7:17 and my miles were as follows; 7:55, 8:16, 5:47 ha, and the last .37miles in 2:36 (which is 6:59 mile pace) way consistent there right?! Oh well, it just felt amazing to run again! I just ran around the neighborhoods next to mine, mild hills not too bad. Wasn't too cold, although im going to try to force myself to run in the mornings. My mission call should be here next week! Last night my friend read his to Bilbao, Spain! Kinda ironic but everyone bet on where he would go I guessed Barcelona, Spain and won twenty bucks yay!
