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.

Basketball this morning, feeling really sore and fat after the last few days.  Only two miles tonight, my lower back was really hurting.

Good morning of basketball, no Driver's Ed today after school, so maybe I can get in a longer run.

Not much time, but did 4.5 miles ran down through Confluence Park then back on Main Street, past the elementary school.  I felt pretty good once I got going.

Very rough night sleeping, for some strange reason Sunny started screaming at about 11:00 pm, said some guy was standing next to our bed and was trying to take her, of course her screaming woke me up and I had no idea what was going on. Anyway after we realized it was just a bad dream and everything fine, then we were both paranoid and couldn't go back to sleep. I think she finally fell asleep at mid-night and I ended up watching T.V. for another hour, then laid in bed wide awake for another hour after that. Very strange night, when the alarm went off at 5:45 for me to go play basketball I wasn't too sure if I felt up to it, but I managed to go play. This is just the time of year, when I'm more into the sport of basketball than running. Different form of exercise and probably doesn't do much for my running, but still something I enjoy quite a bit. I'm planning on a longer run this afternoon.

6 mile run this afternoon, not great but at least I got out. I ran up to the substation and then back home, pretty slow going.

Good morning of basketball, lots of running this morning. My weight was back up again over the weekend, once I get back into running more miles, the weight should drop.

Did the La Verkin 5K loop tonight wasn't really shooting for any certain time, but the first mile was 7:33, followed by 7:18, and then 6:38 into a strong head wind.  I guess it was on the last mile that I thought I would try to break 22 minutes, ended up with 22:10.  Just a nice easy 3 miles

Bill came over to La Verkin this morning after Jordan's game and we did a nice 7.3 mile run over past the gravel pit, then down through Confluence Park and back on Main Street, nice pace and good to visit with Bill.

Basketball again this morning.  This week as been all cross-training, probably try to get in a run tomorrow and a couple next week.  After the start of the new year I'm going to get back to more regular training.  I'm planning on running the Ogden Marathon this spring.

Cold morning run with Steve and Bill, they took it to me pretty good. Said I was slow and out of shape and they dropped me like a rock, no comeback from me, all I could do was agree. Good loop from the store over to the new Washington Exit, then back on the dirt trail. I didn't feel very good the entire run, hips, back, knees, and feet all sore, but was still good to get out.

6 easy miles over past the bridge and back home, felt ok but not great. Today's run put me over 2100 miles for the year. Not all of those miles were running, some were cross-training which is always up for debate. How to convert or compare certain cross-training exercises to running miles? I usually don't get too concerned about it, because I run and train when I feel like it and I play basketball and other sports when I feel like doing that and as far as the miles per week, month and year go, all I really care about is comparing from week to week, month to month and year to year.
