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.

Got my 5 miles in today. Sunny but cold and windy. Got to start putting days together. Haven't done that in a long time. Sometimes i feel i just need to be in the gym for a while. I think i have arthitus in my left forearm and lifting gets rid of it. I'll have to figure something out. To get those runs in on the same day.

Race: O' Niantic 5k (3.1 Miles) 00:25:00

Freezing -  freezing rain all morning leading up to the race. I eat a little bit to much before leaving my house. Usually I don't like eating anything if i can manage that. The race starts out going up a slight hill but narrow one way street. And i made the mistake of getting way in the back. I didn't reach the 1 mile mark till 8.45 but then the crowd started to open up. I was a little shocked at the first mile time. I guess if you want to get good at this forget the weight lifting so much and get the running in.. no matter what..

Did 5 miles this morning. Weather is starting to warm up.. if mid 30's seems warm. Anyway it went pretty good i guess because i didn't really push myself in that race yesterday. Planning on another 5k next week.

Got a new pair of shoes. Asics Nimbus 9's.. my second pair don't feel as good as my last pair.. i think the laces are a little shorter. Bought 6 pair of Throlo socks.. but i think they maybe to thick.. oh well i'm sure they will come in handy some day especially for my next pair of shoes..

 

Maybe these shoes need a little more breaking in period.

Sunny very cold and windy. I was hoping to break the 25 min but unable to. I went looking for some old races i was in years ago and found one 5k. Time was 26:30 that was 5 years ago. So i guess i'm not in to bad a shape.

The harder 5 miles today. Very hilly. Actually 4 miles of it is probably all going up hill to some degree. Around the 3 mile point gets very steep.. levels off on two occasions for about 15 yards giving me a break. But then coming back into town is very steep also. You have to lean way backward for a good 60 yrds. as your coming down. So that actually slows you down to.. i know a lot of beginner runners getting hurt going down hills.
