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.

Did 4 Castle Rock Hill Loops this morning with the cross country team. 1-5:16, 2-4:42, 3-4:38, 4-4:36. Did 3 miles easy as warm-up and cool-down. I need to clarify the workout, after reading some comments. The loops were .9 miles long so the times above were not mile repeat times, I just figured in the active rest in between intervals made the distance add up to actually a mile, hence the 4 threshold miles that I recorded.

Ran 4 easy miles this morning. Having some trouble getting going this week, still feeling some soreness from the half marathon. Ran 7 miles tonight over to Hurricane High and did 1.5 miles around the track then back home.

Did .5 mile warm-up then 4x1 mile repeats on the first part of the Snow Canyon Cross Country course.

1-6:00 took the first one a little easy, just to warm-up a bit more, plus I was kind of unsure of the footing and the exact route.

2-5:54 picked up the pace a little

3-5:44 this is positive droped another 10 seconds

4-5:35 good effort on the last one and ran quite a bit faster than the other 3.

Did some active jogging between intervals, and 1.5 miles cool-down at the end of the workout. My legs are still feeling sore, but it did help some getting out and moving.

Ran with the club tonight, was planning on only going about 6 or 7 miles, instead went with Steve, Clyde and Logan 10 miles, ran down River Road then back to the west along the trail up through St. James and did 1 time up Webb hill, which was a killer for me tonight, took it pretty easy on the way back. Legs still pretty tired, but I think I am going to still do the 10K on Saturday, we are going to go up to Pine Valley tomorrow, so it will be nice to relax a little up there at the cabin.

Ran the Enterprise 10K today. Woke up not feeling too great, but felt a little better as I warmed up for the race. I really didn't know what to expect since my legs have been sore all week from the Bryce Canyon Half Marathon I did last weekend. Before the race started I talked a little with Mike Schramm and he to had been sore for most of the week. Bill and I warmed up a little before the race and visited with some other guys David Holt was there, along with Logan, and Jose. When the gun went off Jose took off, ran the first mile in about 4:39, but would later be passed by Logan, David, and Cheston Slater. Anyway more about my race. I started out pretty fast also

mile 1- 5:03 fast downhill but I felt I was right where I needed to be running with the other guys of similiar ability

mile 2- 5:29 (10:33) another good mile and downhill running with Mike and Ryan

mile 3- 5:40 (16:13) still moving along and feeling better than I thought I would

mile 4- 5:43 (21:56) course starts to flatten out still running with Mike and Ryan, but close enough to see what is happening ahead between Logan, Jose, Cheston, and David

mile 5- 5:53 (27:50) at this point Mike and I pick up the pace a little and move ahead of Ryan. Mike and I kept surging back and forth, which I know helped me out quite a bit.

mile 6 and the .2 6:58-(34:49) I tried to stay with Mike as long as I could, but with about 600 meters to go he had one last good surge and finished ahead of me by probably 15 or 20 seconds.

I took 6th overall and 4th in my age group, missed out on getting a medal, but that was ok, they looked pretty cheap, I was more pleased with my time 34:49 is really fast for me, even if half of the race was a decent downhill. This race and the half marathon last weekend have both been positive experiences and I feel like I am on the right track with my training right now.
