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.

Yippee! Actually got a run in today.  Only did the La Verkin loop so only 3 miles and they were pretty slow and painful.  The ribs were hurting and the legs didn't feel very good either, but it was still nice to get out and enjoy the great weather.

Decided against running the race this morning, still feeling sick and the body has been sore, but I think the ribs are starting to get a little better.  Also my schedule should lighten up a little the next few weeks which will be good.

Still feeling sick, but getting better.  Ever since the marathon it has been one thing after another.  I've taken quite a bit of time off, so I'm sure it will be hard to get back into training, but I need to do it.

Yeah! I did a 3 mile run.  Finally felt good today, no real pain in the ribs, my cold is getting better even though I coughed and did farmer blows the entire run.  Was also nice because I was able to run before it got dark.  I've been on a pretty busy schedule and haven't been getting home until later, so today was nice.

5 miles this morning, pretty rough going.  My hip flexors were really tight I guess that is probably from not running much the last 6 weeks

  It has been a difficult last few weeks, pretty much ever since the marathon things haven't been going that good for me.  First I had the roof accident which is never good on the body, then I broke a few ribs playing basketball, and then finally I got sick with a cold fortunately not the swine flu.

 Anyway, I'm hoping to get back at it and really hoping I can shake off the cobwebs in my joints.

Good run over to Hurricane City Park and back.  This 5 mile run felt much better than Saturdays.  Right now I'm just taking it one day at a time

5 miles down through Confluence Park.  Not really that great of a run.  My hips have really been hurting again.  It hasn't been as big of a problem this year, but two years ago I really struggled with hip pain.  I hope I can get over this soon.  I'm leaning more toward just doing the 5K again this year at Painter's instead of the half.  Do some 5K's and 10K's in the spring and then run the Hurricane Half in April and then the Ogden Marathon in May.

Basketball

Run up the La Verkin Twist then out toward the Cracks, then back on the highway.  My right hip was really killing me, especially running downhill.  Besides that and a fierce wind it was a pretty good run.

8 miles this afternoon.  I ran 2 miles warm-up around Worthen Park and then the Wildbull showed up we did 6 miles down to the river trail and then back to the park.  My hip pain flared up causing quite a bit of pain.  I had to stop a few times to stretch and walk.

Hip Pain please go away! November was a terrible month for me training wise.  I usually slow down from October to the first of the year, but this year has been worse than others.
