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.

Ran the La Verkin Loop this morning 3 miles easy.  I wore my five fingers this morning, my PF has been bothering me a little again.

Sunny and Jansen rode their bikes and I pushed Jarren in the stroller we did just two miles around La Verkin.

3 miles this morning

I started a tempo run, but bagged it after two miles.  A combination of heat, wind, and feeling drained did me in.

I did a two mile warm-up, then started over at the real estate sign.

1-6:05

2-6:15

I then did 1 mile easy and thought well I will just head back and do another 2 miles at tempo, however that didn't workout

Anyway, still got in 9 miles total, so I guess that is good.

Ran with Bill from the Bowling Alley out around Sand Hollow, stopped and watched some of the Ironman swim, then got back down to the Bowling Alley and watched the some of the bike.  We saw Mike go by which was cool.

The run was ok, 13 miles my foot starting hurting about mile 11.  It was kind of a strange pain on the top of the foot.

3 easy miles this morning around town.

Well, I don't really know how to describe this workout.  I was planning on doing a 5 mile tempo run on the loop through Hurricane.  I did a two mile warm-up and then got into the tempo

1-6:07 felt pretty good

2-6:20 not feeling too good, made the mistake of drinking some kool-aid before the run.

3-6:24 my stomach was really hurting so I stopped at the end of this mile

18:55 (6:18 average)

I jogged one mile to try to get my stomach feeling better then did another faster mile

1-6:37 didn't feel very good

Jogged another mile easy, then finished with one more fast mile

1-6:09 I felt better, but this mile was also a gradual downhill which was nice.

Finished with 1 mile jog home, then took Jarren on a 3 mile bike ride.

Played basketball this morning.  Planning to do around 7 miles tonight and then a longer run tomorrow

Run up to Cholla Creek Entrance then back home for a total of 4 miles, watched Jeopardy, then ran 3 miles over to Hurricane and then Sunny picked me up.  The legs are feeling tired and my hip is a little sore from softball last night.

Did 20 miles down the course this morning.  I didn't really feel that good.  Rode up with Clyde, Dave and Bill.  I did the first 10 miles at 7:20 pace then I did a 10K at a faster pace.

After that I pretty much took it easy back to the old store.  I'm glad I got out and got the miles in, but I'm still wondering how things are going to go at Utah Valley in a few weeks.  This week I did hit 60 miles which is the most miles I've ran in a week since last August, so that was good.

Good 70 minutes of basketball this morning.  Ran 9 miles this afternoon, cold and windy.  I went over 600 North then cut down through the subdivision by the wash.  I had to make a pit stop at McDonald's but then made it home with no problems.  I averaged 7:44 for the run, but struggled.  I haven't been feeling that great the last few days.

Basketball this morning.

Ran 3 miles on the treadmill and then when it stopped raining for a bit I ran over to the Hurricane City Park and then back home.  The last two miles were in the rain again.

Did a little over 19 miles down the marathon course this morning.  The first 10 I mainly ran with Ty and we averaged right around 7:30 pace.  I then picked it up pretty good until about a mile from town.  Once I hit town I really struggled.  I'm not really sure what happened, I think probably just a case of being dehydrated or not having enough fuel.  Anyway, I was pretty frustrated with the way this run ended, but I guess I should still be happy I got the miles in.  I am a little concerned with Utah Valley Marathon right around the corner, hopefully this was just one of those runs that didn't go very good.  Considering how busy I've been the training so far this spring hasn't been too bad.

Basketball for 70 minutes this morning

Great workout this evening.  I had Sunny drop me off out at Sky Ranch then I ran home right at 10 miles.  I had the goal to try to average under 7:00 pace.  I felt pretty good and ended up with an 6:38 average and really didn't feel like I was ever pushing it too hard.  I was happy with this run especially compared to how disappointed I was with the last few miles of the run on Saturday.
