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.

The Hurricane Half Marathon was a blast. The weather ended up just right for a run, although there was a pretty good head wind through most of the run. Mile 1 was a warm up mile, just wanted to get the legs loose and ready to go, my split for this mile was 9:06. Mile 2 was starting to find a good rythum and hung with two guys fron out of country, one was from South Africa, the other was from England very nice men. My pace for mile 2 was 8:30. Mile 3 to mile 7 found some uphill and my pace slowed some, still hanging with the two guys from out of country, there goal was to get in under 2 Hrs. Mile 9 found some very steep down hill I was still feeling very good and pace was at 7:47. Miles 10 and 11 some more up hill still feeling strong. Decided to pick up the pace a little and said good-by to the guys out of country, Mile 12 pace was 8:39, and mile 13.1 pace was 8:01. All in all I felt good throughout the whole race, ended up being my second fastest Half Marathon.

Today was another nice day for a run. I did the Spanish Fork Golf Course loop and down through the river bottoms to the Bishops Storehouse and back up around home. Most of my training today was down hill, and I did'nt feel to bad. I feel like I recovered from yeasterdays run in good shape. I am going to start to keep track of my diet a little more and moniter what I eat during the day. I  started the day out with a serving size of oatmeal and blueberrys in the morning, with a yogurt and some grape juice to drink, snacked during morning hour on trail mix and some fruit. For lunch I had a good salad with some chicken and water to drink, and snack on some more fruit. And of course lots of water throughout the day. For dinner tonight will do some spaggetti and a glass of choclate milk. My total time today was 1:37:27, with an average pace of 10:02.

I love sat. long runs early in the morining, there is not much traffic and it feels like you have the road to yourself. I did feel good today, after yesterdays recovery day. This week I feel like I got in a good week of training with up hill work outs and some down hill. I  am very excited for this summers running season, I feel in good health and I hope my Lymphoma dose'nt return. My goal is no radiation treatments this year.I would like to pr on my summer races. In June I am planning on a 10 miler, in July a couple of 10k's, and Aug. a half marathon. Ending in Oct. with the SGM. There were alot of people out training this morning, seen Patrick and his gang, seem like a great group of guys. They are very fast , and I don't know if I would fit in with the group at there speed. My total time today was 2:03:43, with an average pace of 9:47.

Wow what difference a day makes in theweather. When I headed out the door for my run it looked like it my rain, so I took my rain jacket and headed out the door. I got up around the golf course and it started to poor, by the time I made gu corner I was soakin wet. I ended up cutting my run to a six miler, and called it good for the day. I will try and make the mileage up tomorrow. I did feel pretty good today until it started to rain, and it turned cold fast.My total time today was 58:00.

Don't know if I will get a run in today, my girl's have a dance recitale tonight, and we have to be there about the time I would be getting done with my run. Hopefully there will be time after that I can get in a few miles. Oh by the way looks like I will have a C.T. scan next week to check on my lymphoma cnacer. There are some new spot's just below my belly button that are flareing up, sore that wont heal up that kind of thing . Hopefully I won't have to have some more radiation, if so the timeing kind of stinks. So cross your finger's. Catch ya later.
