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.

15:22. Last quarter was 1:15. Was tired because I only got 4 1/2 hrs of sleep but I am driving up to Arizona for nationals so I had to do it before I left.

Couldn't really run anywhere and I wanted to save energy for tomorrow.

Today was Nationals and I got 11th out of about 60 girls. I did pretty good but I know that I could've worked way harder to train. If I want to go to Worlds I need to seriously train, so running will not be a priority.

About 1 mile, around 8:30 pace. I wanted to run 3 but I am still in Arizona and it was almost 100 degrees after dark.

14:38. About half an hour later I did a half in 3:05. My lungs hurt pretty bad after the last half. It's probably because I have ran barely any and maybe since the air quality is very bad.

1 with Mary and Stevie, I think 8:56. 1/2 with Bella. 2 by myself at midnight, 15:04, last quarter was 1:15. It was way easier running in Orem than at home.

Last night I ran 2 miles at midnight and then went to bed at 4am. I got up at 7:30 with a total of 3 1/2hrs of sleep. Also, all week I had not gotten enough sleep. I thought my run would go miserably, but I had a crazy amount of energy. (All Sunday I had a ton of energy also, but finally crashed on Monday).

With some of the Pachevs. 1 mile warm up and 3 miles after the 2 fast. I did 2 fast and my goal was sub 12:40 but I got 12:25 so I was happy. I think my first mile was 6:15 but I am not sure.

Even though it was rest day, I had no time to rest because of church and church classes. the only nap I could fit in was during a Skype call with the Pachevs and I accidentally fell asleep during their conversations for about 20 min. Too bad I wasn't able to go to bed though till midnight.

Some where around 23:00. Last half was 2:58. I felt fine but I could tell I needed more rest because I had a lack of motivation for everything.

22:58. Last half was 2:57. I ran at night so I had more energy built up. I could tell I was burnt out a bit during the day because I felt unmotivated and lazy. Looking back on today I realized all I needed was sleep.

My run was very good though, and I am extremely thankful for the blessing and privilege to run. I love how whenever I am not in the right mindset, when I go on a run I am back to normal. Running isn't the funnest but it is one of the most liberating, healthy, and rewarding thing I do. It is my therapy and it blesses me in every way.

27:17. First 2.5 was 19:50. Fast half was 2:57. Even though it was on a different course I had the same splits as yesterday for the half, 1:38 and 1:19. Since the first quarters for the fast halves are significantly slower, I think I should push a little harder on the first split to make it faster. Cool down was 4:30. Again, I am thankful for running cause it made me feel a lot happier.

27:35. First 2.5 was 20:00. I tried pushing harder for the first quarter and did 1:30, my plan worked well and I got 2:51, although it was harder. Considering I took no stops (I usually do before the fast half), I did good. I might be a bit faster on a better course though because half of it is kinda uphill and I have to turn around halfway and there is a turn. But there is no good spots where I live. Cool down was 4:44.

I Procrastinated and went out the door at midnight only to find a deer 100 meters away from the house. I did not want to have a deer stand-off so I went back inside. I was thinking of just not running then, but I have gotten a lot less stubborn and disciplined lately and it has made a bad effect on me, so I decided to run anyway.

 
So for my run I ran around my backyard. 6 laps is about a quarter, so I went around my backyard 48 times in 15:32. I learned a lot of lessons from this but mainly I have to stop procrastinating.

46:37. The last mile was 6:22. The splits were 1:34, 1:34, 1:41, 1:33. The last half of it was a bit uphill so it was hard. I felt like I could have pushed harder though.
