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 up to the H and back down. Had a pitbull and a lab come up to me when I was up on the hill.  I was a little worried, but nothing bad happened.  I got pretty tired going up, had to walk quite a bit.  I felt ok coming back home, went down through Pah Tempe.  My body felt ok, hip flexors hurting which is an area that hasn't bothered me for quite sometime.

Met up with Bill, Mike, Scott, and Tyler was down from Spanish Fork.  I wanted to run the new St. George Half course, so I would have a better idea what to expect new weekend for the race, even though I don't have any goals and I'm treating it just like another training run.  Anyway, we all started out together the first few miles, then Mike and Bill picked it up a little, but nothing too crazy.  Tyler, Scott, and I just kept it easy, we cut off the last three to only make it 10, but I was fine with that.  Averaged 7:52 and felt pretty good.  I feel like I'm making some progress.  Today's run put me at 40 for the week, which is good for me right now.  Next month I'm going to try to increase to 50 miles a week.

Good job man. Just keep grinding it out and increasing mileage when you can. You'll be back in shape by summer.

Thanks Dustin for setting a steady pace. I probably could have gone a bit harder but that wasn't going to prove anything for me anyway. You kept it just right so I didn't have to take any walk breaks!

Week 1 of the 18 week build up to Ogden Marathon.

Ran over to Pah Tempe and attempted to do a few hill repeats.  The plan called for 3, but I only managed two and neither one was that great.

2 mile warm-up

1-2:21- trouble from the beginning with coughing and struggling to get in a rhythm going up the hill

2-2:26- this repeat was worse than the first one, I pushed all the way to the top and then died.

2 mile cool-down

This wasn't really how I was hoping the workout would go, but at least I tried.  I will be back for hill repeats in a 3 weeks, hope it goes better.  Next Monday will be 1000's, then the next week mile repeats, then back to hill repeats.

Well, don't really know what to say about this race.  I wasn't planning on doing this race, but Bill and Mike talked me into it, saying it would be a good training run, so I agreed.  I'm overweight and still way out of shape, so I really didn't have any expectations going into the race.  Since the marathon in October my only long runs have been a 13 miler and a 16 miler a few weeks ago, so going in I knew I didn't have much of a base as far as endurance.  I did a 3 mile warm-up with Clyde and Dave, which probably made me tired before the race even started.

I think what really frustrated me with this race, was the fact my splits were all over the place.  The first 4 miles were probably too fast and then I struggled the rest of the race getting into any kind of rhythm.  The new course is challenging, but I actually liked it and hope they don't keep changing it every year, like has been the trend the last few years.  There was some rain and a slight headwind at times, but the weather wasn't too bad.  Looking back I was probably over dressed, I wore my duofold tights and shirt.

Anyway, I'm glad I finished the race, I was tempted to turn around at my 4 and just run back to the start.  I had the same thought when we got by the bridge at mile 9, I thought it would be a good place to just cut back to the beginning, but I didn't.  The last two miles were somewhat respectable.

Pretty decent run this morning on the Dogtown Half Course.  I had never been on part of the trail, so that was fun running somewhere new for a change.  I actually felt a lot better than I did at the St. George Half two weeks ago and my splits were quite a bit better.  I think if I would have pushed it a little harder at the end and ran 1 more mile I would have been about 4  minutes faster than my race time from two weeks ago.

Drove over to Coral Canyon, did 4 miles tempo from the start of the Dogtown Half down to the intersection of the Virgin River Trail head.  I did ok on the tempo, especially considering I did no warm-up to start, just jumped out the truck and started running fast downhill.

The average was 6:22

I was happy with the tempo, the next 4 miles however weren't quite as enjoyable.  I took the trail 12% uphill grade over to Telegraph, then climbed that road to the top and back down to Coral Canyon then ran another 2 miles uphill to the Harley Store.

Well, I guess this race was a step in the right direction.  I was really hoping to be under 1:30, but I struggled on a few of the sections.  Last month I ran the STG half in 1:40:17, so I took almost 8 minutes off of that time today.  I know what I need to do, I just need to get out there and get to training better.  I also need to clean up my diet.  I felt pretty good the first 6 miles, might have gone out too fast for the shape I'm in, but I just felt like using the downhill miles at the beginning the best that I could.  I'm looking forward to doing the Spectrum 10K and maybe another half next month.  The key race for me this spring will be the Ogden Half Marathon in May, so I'm going to keep working at getting back into shape.

Trying a new 10 week half marathon training schedule.  I started today and hope to see some results when I do the Ogden Half in 10 weeks.  Today the schedule called for 800m repeats @ half marathon goal pace with 200m recovery.  I just figured I would stick with whatever pace felt like I was getting a workout.  I did 1.5 warm-up then got into the repeats over at Hurricane High School's track.

1-2:56

2-2:56

3-2:54

4-2:54

5-2:52

Did 1.5 cool-down then called it a day.  My legs were a little sore before I started the workout, still feeling the effects from Saturday's long run, so I didn't want to push to much and get injured.

Well, this was an ok race considering where I'm at.  Last year I ran 37:26, so I was hoping to be close to that.  This year we had a decent headwind for much of the race, so it slowed me down some, plus being out of shape.

Did 3 miles of warm-up

1-5:32 Always a fast downhill mile, just tried to hold back

2-6:10 Legs feeling dead already

5 miles down through Confluence Park, stopped for a bit and took a swim in the river.  The horseflies were really bad, which was frustrating.  One interesting thing happened I saw two deer down by the pump station.

Ran 2 miles this morning around the condo by myself.  Then I went and did 2 miles with Mike and Bill out around mile 10 and 11 of the marathon.  We got back to the truck and I went and did another 2 miles into Huntsville, they picked me up right before a big thunderstorm came through.

Later in the day we went to breakfast at Village Inn and then over to the expo.  At the expo I talked with Adam Goucher and Tim Catalano from Colorado.

After the expo we went back up to Eden and played some pool and the "PIG" on the basketball court.

In the afternoon I did 3 miles from the condo down to Eden, then Mike and Bill came and picked me up.

Well today's race was a pretty good experience for me.  I have been working to get back into shape, still have a long ways to go, put at least I left this race feeling a little better about myself.

So far this year I've ran 1:40:16 at St. George Half and 1:32:36 at Dogtown Half, so I was really hoping to see some improvement in my half time today.  I sat out with the goal of around 1:25:00 or 6:30 pace

I started off very conservative and just warmed up the first 4 miles and really didn't start picking it up until the canyon.  Down the canyon I kept everything under control and I was probably most pleased with the last few miles on the trail where I thought I would struggle, but didn't too bad.

Met up with Tyler at the start and did half a lap around the Eden park and then straight to the starting line.  A little chilly at the start, but once we started running very nice temps

1-7:10 Nice and easy, kept forcing myself to slow down

2-6:54 A little up hill, still warming up

3-6:44 Still having to hold myself back

4-6:46 Feeling ready for the canyon

5-5:56 Maybe a little too excited but this mile drops a lot

6-6:18

7-6:19

8-6:11

9-6:09

10-5:56 I was pretty pleased with how things were going at this point, really wanted to get in at least 6 good miles,

11-6:28

12-6:51 Lack of endurance starting to effect me.

13-6:36 Pretty decent last mile

.25- 1:26

Everyone I talked with had the course measured long on their Garmins by about.10, so if that were really the case then made you could take off 45 seconds.

Anyway my chip time was 1:26:04 (6:34 average) so I was pretty happy with that.  Best thing I didn't feel totally beat up, like after most races.  I was able to run 2 miles after the race.  I went and helped pace Bill the last half mile of the marathon.  He ran 3:13 and Mike ran 3:06.  Steve Olsen did a 1:20 in the half and Tyler Shepard had a great race 1:19:11, so I was happy for him.

This race has gotten me excited for a good summer of training and racing.  I'm signed up for the St. George Marathon, but plan to do 2 or 3 more halves this summer, plus some 10K's.

Much better run tonight compared to how I have felt the last few runs.  I basically took Saturday and Sunday off so the extra rest may have helped some.  I was still struggling some with a cough, but overall a pretty good run.  I went over 600 North, then past Hurricane Elementary, down to Classic Sports stopped in for a bit to look at some soccer cleats for Jansen and then home via city park for a quick drink, had to extend some at the end to make it 8.

Played basketball for an hour tonight.  The games were pretty intense and I really felt tired for most of the night, in fact I left an hour early because physically I was just done.

Great tempo run this afternoon.  I did a 3 mile warm-up up to the Substation on 600 North felt terrible on the warm-up, wasn't sure how the body would respond to a 2 mile tempo.  After stretching got into the tempo.  The last time I did this was back on May 8th ran 11:44 (5:44, 6:00) I was really hoping to be somewhere close to that today.

So I was 4 seconds faster which is good.  So far fastest time of the year was March 29 11:29 (5:39, 5:50) had a really strong tailwind that day also.

Anyway did 1 mile cool-down then rode the bike up and down the street a few times to test it out, of course my luck after doing that I already had a flat tire on the back wheel.

Well this was the slowest and worst marathon I've ever run.  I knew going in that I wasn't in very good shape.  However I do feel that I'm in better shape than what my time ended up being.

I woke up and had two pieces of toast and felt ok.  However, similar to Utah Valley Marathon I felt sick on the bus ride up to the start line. It was fun seeing everybody at the start.

I had a plan to go out real easy and I actually felt like I followed that plan pretty good.  My main goal was to try to break 3:10.  I made it to the point where I dropped out last year just above Snow Canyon, pulled over and threw-up for the first time.  I made it ok to Winchester but then stopped again at the top of the hill and threw-up a second time.  Also, my left hip started locking up I've had hip problems especially on the left side since high school, when I injured it my junior year.  I also started getting some major pain in my feet in the arches, for the most part my PF hasn't been that bad this year, but it flared up around mile 18.  Around mile 21 I saw Mike on the side of the road.  I stopped and walked with him for probably 5 to 10 minutes, he was struggling with chest pain, so I was concerned, he told me he was going to drop so after talking with him for a bit I continued on.  I basically knew at this point any chance of 3:10 was already out the window so I was fine with the time I spent walking with Mike.  Anyway, once I made it to town things were a struggle.  I stopped again at mile 24 and threw-up in some guys garbage can.  Also around this mile a lady was sitting there handing out stuff and she gave me a small bottle of coke, this actually tasted pretty good and helped calm the stomach a little.  I was able to shuffle along the last few miles.  Once I got the park it was more vomiting and just feeling sick.  Anyway not a very good day for me.  However, I was happy to see many of my friends have good races.  Bill had a great day and missed breaking 3 hours by 8 seconds, still in my mind I think he is a sub 3 guy.  Most of the other guys from the club ran good.  I didn't stay very long at the park as I was still feeling pretty sick.  I drove home, but had to pull over 1 time to... well you guessed it throw-up again.

A day later thinking about things I don't plan to do another marathon until I've lost about 20 pounds and feel like I'm in sub 3 shape.  There really is no reason I can't get back to where I was at in 2006 through 2009.

Well, you got out there and ran, which is more than most people (including me) can say. Sorry it didn't go as well as you hoped. But congrats on finishing!

Basketball this morning, lots of running today also had both long sleeve and short sleeve shirt playing inside

6 mile run this afternoon went down to Nephi's Twist then up the trail which always kills me.  Had a few good miles coming down the La Verkin Twist.

After the run went to the football game. Hurricane beat Delta 38-0.  Jordan started on the offensive line and played pretty good, also got some time on defense.  Looks like a road trip next week up to Juan Diego, so not going to be able to run Snow Canyon Half or Butch Cassidy 10K I was trying to decide between those two and now it looks like I won't be doing either as we will probably stay up in Salt Lake after the game.
