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.

I ran 7:01 and he ran 7:02.

Basketball this morning. Struggled getting going tonight, really didn't want to run and after .5 miles I thought about just turning around and being done, legs really sore, especially my right knee.  Anyway I kept going and did a 5 mile loop over past the gravel pit and then down to Trailridge Subdivision, back on the highway and then back over by the gravel pit and home through Zion View Estates.

16 miles down the marathon course.  I really struggled this morning, left calf was knotted up and right knee bothering me again.  I averaged 7:54 not a very good run for me.

Another 4 miles this afternoon ran/jogged/walked dow to the river and soaked for awhile hoping to loosen up the legs.

Today we had Stake Conference, it was pretty good most of the messages were related to Hastening the Work.  After conference, just spent most of the day resting.  Yesterday, I ran 16 miles down the marathon course, not a very good run, later in the day I did another 4 miles down to the river.  Friday didn't do much drove for a few hours after school  Thursday night I went to round table and got some training on rechartering and friends of scouting.  Tuesday I drove after school and then went on a run with Bill and then went to Jansen's football game. Their team got beat pretty good, but Jansen did have a couple of good plays.  Monday I didn't have work, didn't do much.

Pretty decent workout.  Did 6 mile tempo run from Anderson Junction to Riverwoods.

1 mile warm-up in a light rain.

1-6:25 some uphill

2-6:15 not as fast as it could have been, right knee and left calf still buggin

3-6:34 decent mile considering the rolling

4-6:29 most pleased with this mile as it has some uphill leaving Toquerville and is usually slower

5-6:12 good mile, I used to run this quite a bit faster but just kept it under control today.

6-6:42 a little uphill in the middle and then the last .4 on dirt which was a little tricky today with all the rain.

38:42 (6:27 avg) the training plan just called for a 6:43 avg, so I was happy I was able to run a little faster.

For a cool down I ran 4 miles over to the river, which was flowing very fast and out of its bank in a few spots, very dangerous, but also cool to watch.  I made sure I didn't get too close, but still had this weird feeling of excitement.

Basketball could hardy move.

Didn't run tonight, driver's ed went long as I had to change a flat tire and then decided to mow the lawn.  Actually felt good to rest the knee.

Better run for me this week compared to last weeks run down the course.  Last week I did 16 and averaged 7:54 today I did 20 and averaged 7:28 ran 2:29:20 and felt pretty good.  Not really much knee or calf pain.  I did have a weird pain the last mile on the top of my right foot?  Anyway, took it pretty easy the first 4 miles and up Veyo, then a little faster through Dammeron and down the Volcano.  Glad to get this run in and how it turned out.

Today we didn't have our normal church meetings, instead we were able to go and attend the re dedication of the Ogden Temple.  Mckinzie watched Joslin and the rest of us went along with Gary.  After the meeting I spent the rest of the day just taking it pretty easy.  Yesterday I ran 13 miles out around Sand Hollow with Bill, Cody, Mike and Scott.  The rest of the week has was pretty good.
