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 out to my school and did some work, then ran home.  Good to get out this morning, but feeling the effects of not having ran the last few days.

Meet up with Logan, Clyde, Dave, Mike, and Bill for a nice tempo run this morning from Clyde's house.  Did a 3 mile warm-up, even though it was already 82 degrees out.  Then got into the tempo.  Everyone was planning on doing 6 miles of tempo, but I kind of felt for me that might be a bit much, so I just decided to start with everyone, then see how things were going after each mile.

1-6:00- feeling good

2-5:57- still feeling good

3-6:18- starting to struggle, begin thinking about only doing 5 miles of tempo

4-6:27- decide that 4 miles is where I'll stop today.

24:46 (6:11 average) Not bad, I think I can work up to maintaining this pace for the 6 miles or more depending where we run.

I then spent the next 4 miles trying to find my way back to the others.  I took a few wrong turns up in Bloomington Hills, but I think I understand the course better now and look forward to next week.  I'm pretty sure I'll be able to add another mile or two of tempo next week.

8 miles up the La Verkin Twist to the Overlook and then back down.  Going up was pretty slow, hit a few miles under 7 min, coming down but overall a pretty hot slow run this morning.  However, still good to get out.

3 easy miles this morning, did the Pah Tempe Loop.  My legs were feeling pretty tired this morning.  Thinking about doing the 5K tonight.  Where and what time are people meeting?

Did the Chelsi's Run 5K tonight.  There was a pretty good turnout and fun to run a race at 10:00 pm even if it is still 100 degrees outside.  I did a 2.5 mile warm-up then met up with most of the running club guys.

1-5:39 Logan, Dave, and Clyde were out in the front from the start.  I ran the first .5 with James, then he gapped me pretty good.  The start was fun.  Mike and Bill took off like gangbusters, but they couldn't keep up with the 9 year old girl that smoked the entire field for the first 400m.

2-5:53 Felt ok on the second mile running in 5th pace, but then Kimzey (sp?) passed me, so I was in 6th.  I could hear the three Pine View High School kids behind me saying "Hey let's go catch that guy in the white singlet"  I'm pretty sure they were actually thinking "let's catch that fat guy in the white singlet"

3-6:03 The heat starting to get to me, plus the fact I'm running a 5K and I'm out of shape.  I'm working hard but not closing any on 5th place, but still holding off the other two high school kids.

.5- .14

Overall time was 17:50 (5:52 average)

I felt pretty good with this race considering the heat and the fact it was a pretty honest course, not much downhill or uphill, pretty flat and fair.  Looking forward to supporting again next year.

Did 1.5 mile cool-down

8 miles this morning after getting in late from the race last night.  I ran out on 600 north, it was nice this morning with some cloud cover.  My legs felt tired and some tightness in my right hip.

Didn't make it over to run with Bill, Mike, and Scott.  Got up and did the La Verkin Loop easy, now heading up to Pine Valley might run some more up there.
