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.

Good progression run with Joseph, just a good push, nothing too crazy. Started at about 6.30 pace, and got down to about 5.45 by the end, although it was downhill at that point.

a really good progression/tempo run. It was my fastest one since the marathon. First mile was 6:04, then 2 miles at 6 min pace, next one at 5:42, last one at 5:40. It was a good run for me to get a feel of where I'm at, and encourage me to keep improving. Hopefully in the not so distant future I'll be able to crank out 7 miles or so at a 5:40 pace

Enjoyed a nice long run today. I'm pretty stiff right now, and my legs were feeling pretty heavy, probably because of a long ski day yesterday. I ran just over 6 miles of the run with Anna, and helped her out with her fartlek workout, so that was good.

Just a rough day to be honest, most of it spent studying for/taking an ochem test

Great run today! I ran with a guy named Daniel, first time running with him. Pretty cool dude from Georgia, ran D2 XC and track, and he's out here looking to run for BYU here in the near future. He'll probably be a regular running buddy, so that's good stuff!

Good progression run today with Joseph. Actually kind of a weird progression run. The splits were as follows: 6:30, 6:20, 6:25, 6:00, 6:10, 6:25, 5:55, 5:45

So the plan was to start out at 6:30 pace and drop 10 seconds every mile, but Joseph got a little antsy mile 4, he also didn't have a watch, so he couldn't really gage his pace super well. Then coming back there was a bit of a headwind, and he was just beat, and actually dropped out after 7, poor dude, he was really hurting. I was glad to get a good push and go hard the last couple

good run, longer than I expected. I was planning on just going about 8 with my new friend Daniel, but ended up going much longer, as we explored some new roads and found a fun little loop. I finished just in time, otherwise I might have pooped my pants

Nice run today. I ran the first 6 with Sam, then the next 6 on my own. My legs were super tired, but I didn't let that affect me too much, because I went skiing the whole afternoon. Good day!

quick, chill 7 mile run. I ran into Jacob Zufelt at the end of the run, the dude's getting married this weekend! How crazy!

I went a different direction this time than I normally go, a little more hilly, but it was fun to mix it up

It was late when I started running, but I ran the 6 miles pretty quick because I wanted to watch the second half of the Jazz game, but man, it was such a dissapointing loss... Hopefully they can win the next one!

Good fartlek workout with Joseph today. It was a 1,2,3,4,5,4,3,2,1 pyramid type workout, with a recovery time of half the previous fartlek time. Between the 5 and second 4 minute reps, Joseph wanted to do a 10 minute tempo at 6:20 pace, so we did that as well. Each fartlek was ran at 5.40 pace or faster, so I was pretty happy with those results

Super good to be down in St. George. I met up with Coach Fielding that morning and we ran the bottom 18 miles of the marathon course, with 8 miles of it being a progressing run. It was a great workout, and my last 3 miles all being right around or under 5.25, so that just felt great. The confidence is high, and so is the motivation to keep working hard and get even more prepared for race day. The only downside to the workout was that I felt like I had to poop almost the whole time, and almost didn't make it to the bathrooms at the park... haha, a little awkward, but we've all been there
