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.

Met up with Bull, Bigfoot, and The Shepard.  We did a nice run from above the Volcano, down through Snow Canyon State Park, then out to Ivins and back on Old Highway 91 to Mike's house.  Overall pace was 7:15, I felt ok, note to self don't have Cafe Rio the night before a long run!  I had stomach troubles all morning.  Did some faster miles the last 3.

Trying a new 10 week half marathon training schedule.  I started today and hope to see some results when I do the Ogden Half in 10 weeks.  Today the schedule called for 800m repeats @ half marathon goal pace with 200m recovery.  I just figured I would stick with whatever pace felt like I was getting a workout.  I did 1.5 warm-up then got into the repeats over at Hurricane High School's track.

1-2:56

2-2:56

3-2:54

4-2:54

5-2:52

Did 1.5 cool-down then called it a day.  My legs were a little sore before I started the workout, still feeling the effects from Saturday's long run, so I didn't want to push to much and get injured.

Basketball this morning

Well, this was an ok race considering where I'm at.  Last year I ran 37:26, so I was hoping to be close to that.  This year we had a decent headwind for much of the race, so it slowed me down some, plus being out of shape.

Did 3 miles of warm-up

1-5:32 Always a fast downhill mile, just tried to hold back

2-6:10 Legs feeling dead already

3-6:07

4-6:25 Stopped for a moment at the aid station

5-6:50 Walked for a bit right after the mile 4 marker.

6-6:36 Still struggling

.2-1:02

38:43 (6:14)

So this was slower than last year, but still good to get out and push myself.

Did 4 miles cool-down from Mike's up to his old house and then back.

I didn't get a workout in today. Had a meeting after school, then mowed the lawn, then off to Driver's Ed until 8.  I got home and spent time working on a paper.

Not a very good run today.  I had no energy and motivation.  This has been a pretty busy and stressful week.  The workout I did Tuesday was positive but everything else this week has been just average.

Not much time as I had to get to driver's ed by 4:30.  I did 2.5 miles up the La Verkin twist in like 21:54. I really didn't have a plan to run fast back down but I was feeling pretty good so I hit 6:08 and 6:05 then took it easy the last .5.  This was a good little run.
