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.

6- Ran up the La Verkin Twist on the trail, then veered off on another trail, went up 2 miles then came back down, then ran along 100 east over to the cow field then back home on the state route.  I just took it pretty easy.  I haven't been feeling very motivated lately.

Just an easy run down through Confluence Park, feeling very out of shape and over weight.  Too much junk food over the weekend.

Basketball this morning

6- Ran down and did Nephi's Twist.  I really struggled going up the steep hill once on the top I hit the downhill miles of the La Verkin Twist pretty hard.

I'm still feeling the same, not a lot of energy lately, still struggling with a cough, PF always hurting, and over weight.

2-Did 2 miles easy before basketball this morning

Basketball for an hour.

6- Ran up the Overlook Trail, never easy going up that way.  Once up on top and took a few minutes like always to just look out across town and over toward Hurricane and St. George.  It was really windy this afternoon and threatening to rain.  I came back down on the La Verkin Twist trail.

Did a run this afternoon from the Staples on Kolob Road down through Virgin and the La Verkin Twist.  I did this run back in April, so it was interesting to compare splits.

Today                       4-22-11

1- 6:36                      6:53

2- 6:40                      6:40

3- 6:32                      6:32

4- 6:47                      6:41  

5- 6:43                      6:38

6- 7:34                      7:14

7- 7:53                      7:13

8- 6:33                      6:27

9- 6:17                      6:10

10- 7:02                    6:52

1:08:46 (6:52 avg)      (6:44 avg)

So I was a little slower today than in April.  I especially struggled on the uphills.  Anyway, glad I did this run but I'm still feeling pretty worried about STG.  Probably just try to go with the attitude of having a good time and trying to run with friends, not worry about a certain or place.  I know that might sound lame, but that is kind of where my attitude is right now with running.

Ran 1.5 miles around La Verkin, then got in my truck and drove up to Rockville. I ran 10 down from Rockville and then met up with Sunny.  I felt ok on this run, expect I wore the compression socks and my feet were on fire, they really were bugging me, not hot like a blister, but more like athlete's foot or something?  They were also bugging me last night before bed.  Anyway not sure if I will wear the compression socks during the marathon.  I might go get some of the sleeves.  Ok back to the run.  I actually did this same run last year on this same weekend.  Comparing the times, I'm not as far off as I thought I would be.  Last year I averaged 6:50 for 15.  Today was 6:59 for 10, but I also never felt like I was pushing the pace.  Also last year I was 10 pounds lighter, so I'm sure that makes a difference

Ran over to Sky Mountain Golf Course, then came back on the highway and through town.  I did ok the first 7 miles, but the last 4 were a struggle.  I'm not really looking forward to next Saturday.

Sick stayed home from work.  This is not a good week to be sick, with the marathon coming up on Saturday.  Been throwing up, feel dizzy, and I have a headache that won't go away.

Slept much better last night and got up feeling pretty good, so I went to basketball.  I'm planning on doing a run this evening and then one tomorrow morning and Friday.

Did the La Verkin Loop tonight, felt ok.
