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.

7.2 miles this evening. I'm leally leally leally sore. As my friend Tosh from Japan would say. He struggles to say his "R's". I was coming around at the end of last week and then took a few steps back on the run on Saturday. I don't regret a single step of it other than some of the ending miles which were a little uncalled for. 

Today I ran up to GS and back home on the trail. Just struggled to get anything going. I'm really looking forward to being able to run again and not being sore and hurt. Forget racing at this point.... I just want to run without pain.

7.8 mile run this morning up into GS the long way and home on the trail. I decided that mileage, pace and the like will all go on the back burner for a while until the body says it feels ready for more. I just struggled through this run. So if I get in 3 or 15 miles a day I really don't care for now. Whatever feels good. I'd really like to feel well rested and fully recovered before thinking about anything else. So unless something big happens soon I'm most likely crossing off any December or January marathons.

4 miles this afternoon. I really didn't want to run again today but I went into the store and got some new shoes and had to go try them out. I've been running on shoes that for the most part are wore out or don't feel that great- and right now as sore as I am I need something that feels nice and plush.

So I just went out and back a couple miles and the shoes felt good.

7.5 miles this morning. GS loop with Middleton extension. I kind of had some control over my form this morning for the first time in awhile. My hamstring is so sore. I think I'm going to need a transplant. 

Good little run as I tried out a new pair of Cumulus- I think they will be a hit.

4 miles on the treadmill this evening. I spent a long day taking care of some business and other stuff in Cedar City today and got home just dead. I've been really stressed out the last week or so and that's sucked too. So todays little quickie on the machine was just that- a quickie on the machine. I guess the only nice thing about it was that I cleaned and rearranged the garage so the treadmill and two cars could be in there and I was excited to see how it worked in it's new spot. It worked great in it's new spot. Now I just have to find a new car... nothing fancy just something for me to run around town in. The bike thing only really lasted 4 months. But I needed to sell my car and get something with 4-wheel drive anyways or all wheel (Subaru). 

So there you have it. I decided if your feeling a real zeal for life and running right now you may not wont to read my blog for awhile because I'm kind of a downer. I'm really not into running right now and just do it out of repetition. Everything hurts and when it stops I'll get bubbly again.

12.15 mile morning run up around the overpass. Actually this was a pretty good little run. I still felt sore in places- hamstring for sure but overall one of the better ones since the marathon. This will most likely be my long run for the week as I'm going up to Orem today and will be up there over the weekend. Maybe I'll catch a run tomorrow morning before going to the BYU game and maybe I won't.

Well no running today up here in Orem. I wasn't feeling that great when I woke up in the morning and then the rest of the day just flew by. We went to the BYU game and it was just o.k. They really didn't look that good. After the game (we left in the 3rd) we went to SLC to Mik'L's uncles house for a little family party. I ate some amazing chili (maybe the best ever) but that put an end to my running thoughts for the day. My stomach was going through World War III- oh yeah the chili was on top of the Brawt and fried onions I had at the game. 

We had a good time up there this weekend but it is good to finally be home. One of the highlights was getting a bunch of stuff for our new nursery. Mik'L is a little shopper and we loaded up. I fact a lot more than we could haul home. So a friend will be brining it down in his truck latter this week.

 So after the no running and eating everything in sight. I think I can hear myself getting fatter!
