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 down through Confluence Park, then over past the gravel pit.  I felt ok, ankle still buggin', just the typical out of shape feeling.

Ran up to the Substation this afternoon, then did a two mile tempo back to the cow field.  I wanted to see where I'm at with my fitness and establish a baseline.  I was hoping to be able to average 6:30 pace for the two miles, and I was actually pretty close.

1-6:27

2-6:39

13:06 (6:33 average)

This is quite a bit slower than what I usually do on this 2 mile tempo, but this is still good because it gives me an idea where I'm at

Today I did Nephi's Twist trail.  I had a hard time especially going up the steep hill section, still glad I got out and got a few miles in.  Everything has been a struggle lately.

Went and played basketball this morning.

This afternoon, I went and ran up the Overlook Trail to the top.  The first mile over to the trail head was good, but the second mile of climbing was absolutely terrible.  I kept experiencing lots of pain in my back, once on top things were a little better.  The only problem up on top of the Overlook was dealing with a very strong, cold headwind for about two miles.  The last two miles were ok.

I did a run tonight from the Overlook Road over to toward the Gun Club and then out on some jeep trails.  I didn't have a lot of time, so I only did 4 miles.

Ran over to Walmart, this was not a good run at all.  I was really struggling the whole way, plus I had to deal with a cold headwind most of the way, no fun.

Drove out to Utah Hill with Mike, Bill, and Scott.  I didn't feel very good from the start, didn't help that everyone took off like rockets.  I hit the first 3 miles with a 6:30 average, I'm just not in that kind of shape yet.  Anyway, I struggled bad on this run, ankle problems, a blister on my right foot, too hot..then too cold.  Bill was nice and came back to help me make it through.  Anyway 2011 was a year to forget running wise, I'm going to work harder this next year and hopefully it will be better.
