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.

Well back in wonderful warm Utah, Ha,Ha

Vegas was fun to run in some warmer weather. Today I could diffenitly feel the altitutde change as I felt like I was working harder, maybe the colder weather also had something to do with it.

Today it took me almost as long to do the 5 miler as it did the 6 miler yesterday. My time today was 50:27. I did feel very wack today, maybe tommorrow I will do better.

Today I thought I would just go out and do an easy run, and not push to hard, but once I got going I felt pretty good. My first 3 mile split was 26:08, I thought not to bad. I still felt like I had some more energy to give so The final 3 I tried to pick it up a little more and ended with a 24:51, total for the 6 miler was 50:49 almost a 3 min. improvement from Tues. 6 miler.

My right outside bottom of my right foot is still sore, so I took it easy. My time today was 47:50, and I also did 200 crunches to try and strenghten my core. The 3 Bull Elk are still in the river bottoms. Very cool.

I took yesterday off and let my right foot heal up a little. It was still a little bit sore today, so I took it real easy. I am haveing a hard time staying motivated. Everyone in my house this week has had the roto-rooter trots, sick tummies. My wife and I are the only ones who have dodged the bullet, so far. I hope I don't get that nasty stuff. my time today was a very slow 1:01:20.

I have been blessed with a new toy for my running addiction. My wife and Mom gave me a Garmin 205 for Christmas, and today I used it on my run. I think it will be a great tool to help me get better and faster. I am still trying to figure out all the bells and whiseles. I felt pretty good today after taking a few days of to let my foot get better still haveing some problems on the bottom of my right foot, I think it is time for some new shoes. My time today was 46:53. Average pace was 9.10 min. mile.

The morining there was a new inch of snow on the roads, so I did 20 min. of my nordic track, and planned to do 6 miles in the afternoon when the roads were not so snowy. I felt ok on the run, really did'nt feel much like pushing it, so I kept it at a 10 min. pace. My time today was a slow 1:53:00, My right foot is still a little tender, can't wait for the new shoes to get here. I did see 3 deer, and 3 bull elk which was way cool. There was a pretty good head wind through most of my run. Calories burned today 1169 on my 6 mile run, and 250 on my nordic track workout. I have been on vaction for about a week, before my vacation my weight was at 175, this morning I was at 172. I would like to get down to 160, don't know if I have the determination to do that. But will try. I whis I had my wife's will power to stay away from the refined sugar, chocolate is my main weakness.
