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.

I was able to do a morn run today it felt good to get a break from the afternoon heat. I did the Old Bishop Stoerhouse route which gave me mostly an uphill workout today. The felt really muggy this morn so I guess we will see rain this afternoon. Have a great day.

There seems to be more and more runner's each year for this race, it is a challenging 10k the first mile is uphil and the last mile is uphill. Not my best time for a 10k, but it is a pr for this course. Last years time was over 50:00:00, My goal was to try and do a 7:30 pace doing well untill mile 3 and then I went through the dry heave thing. Not sure why that happens but I had to back the pace off a bit and was able to average a 7:54. It was very muggy and warm I think they need to start this a little earlier in the morn.

Very hot and windy run today the wind was out of the southwest so for the last couple of miles it was in my face. I went through alot of sports drink today, my route for today was the golf course loop with the side river trail it seemed alittle bit cooler along the river. For the most part my legs don't seem to be to whacked after sat race which is surpriseing so hopefully they will continue to hold together. I did do 25 min of Bowflex on my upper body and finished with 200 crunches.

Wow another very hot and windy run, that's ok I like it. It is better than running in 9 degrees. I did the Bishop Stoe house route today, felt ok for the most part the heat kind of whacked out my energy.

My legs today felt whacked, zapped, and Hacked. I just had to go very easy today plus it was on the hot side again. But it was still a great run, I did the golf course loop today and the road crews have out down a fresh layer of tar and rocks. It made for a difficult run today. I did do 25 min of Bowflex on my upper body and finished with 200 crunches.

I was able to hit the road at 5:30 am this morn, it felt good to get in an early morn run for a change. It was a very muggy one though and I went through lots of sports drink. Felt good for the most part, I had a little 2 point buck jump out in front of me. scared me to death. Oh well it was a great run and veru injoyable. Oh it is my 30th wedding aniversary today.

My legs felt ok today considering my long run on sat. They seem to recover ok, I did the golf course route, I got out kind of late but thats ok. It was still a great run and very injoyable. And then I came home and dug trenches for my sprinkling system so I am very tired now.

I just got done digging more trenches for my PI irrigation, I am extremly whacked. Trying to keep up with training and putting in a yard is exhausting. I did do 25 min of Bowflex on my upper body, and finished with 200 crunches.

Not as warm but still the sweat was pouring out of the old body. I did the golf course loop again with the little river trail and back home not a whole lot very exciting happened just a nice run in the river bottoms. No cross training today instead went out in the yard with the pick and shovel and dug another trench. I do have the Speedy Spaniard 10k on friday should be interesting. My legs of the past few weeks have been whack.

Todays run took on the Bishop Storehouse run, first mile flat and warm up 2nd mile down hill finally felt like pushing a few miles today, miles 3 and on rolling up hill. So mile s 2 and 3 I did feel like pushing and then kind of coasted the rest. I will take tomorrow off and do Speedy Spaniard race on friday and then a long run on sat.

Nice early morn run very muggy though but still very injoyable. I seen all the Spanish Forkers amd some Salemites out this morn they were all going fast as usuall. I went out over Harry's Hill into Salem then back to GU Corner. I then did a Golf Course loop back to GU Corner and then home. My legs were a little on the whack side from yesterdays 10k race but not bad. Have a great weekend.
