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.

Big Workout #9 5 x 1000 CV repeats with 2 min recovery.  Well, this workout was tough.  I'm still here in Colorado so still struggling a little with altitude.  I did a two mile warm-up down to Woodbury Park, this is where I would have kids run intervals when I was coaching here a few years ago.  Anyway a nice park with large grass soccer fields to run around.  However, I do think the grass made my times a little slower than on the track or road.  I did the best I could to measure out a course, but was limited to just using my Garmin.

1-3:41 .62 m (5:56 pace) Felt good, just seeing how the course would work

2-3:41 .63m (5:52) Another good repeat

3-3:43 .62 (6:02) Starting to hurt

Extra recovery here

4-3:45 .62 (6:02) Not feeling good at all

5-3:48 .62 (6:09) Just running to finish

So overall not the best of times or workout, but still glad I did 5, especially for being out of my normal routine and location for doing this workout.  I had thought about doing them on the track at the local high school, but then thought the grass might be a nice change.

Easy 2 mile recovery home.

Had a hard time getting up and moving this morning. Did manage to get in 6.5 miles, will do another run tonight. Legs stiff from the drive home yesterday.

Another 6.5 miles tonight.  Ran up to the 600 North Trailhead, then back home extended a little through Pheasant Glen

Did a river run tonight with the club.  It was 108 when we left. It was fun running through the river, not so fun running through the sand.  I took a little spill, but it was all good.  Bill and I cut the run a little short.  He had to get back to work and I needed to get home. Fun run, but not something I would do very often.

Ran to the church then played basketball for an hour, good break from running this morning.

Ran over to Hurricane City Park and back.  Nice run, a hot still even at 9:00 pm.  Didn't run with a watch just some old school hip hop on the ipod.

Meet up with Mike, Bill and Logan this morning out at Brentwood.  We did the loop out to Sand Hollow.  We didn't go around the lake, just cut across the dam, which put us right over 9 miles once we got back to the car.  Then Bill and I extended another 3.5 miles. I did another .5 around the block once I got home.  Overall a nice morning and glad to have gotten in a longer run.  I need to start hitting some 15 to 20 milers to get ready for the marathon.

I'm doing pretty good with the pop thing.  No Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, or Mountain Dew going on 18 days.  Also been about that long since I've had a hamburger or fries.  I have had a couple rootbeer floats, but overall the diet has been better.  However, I'm still not losing the weight, probably once I start doing some longer runs the pounds will come off faster.
