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.

Back from our trip to Colorado. The running didn't go to good. My hip was really bothering me Friday, so I only did like 3 miles, and then didn't run Saturday or Sunday of course. We had over a 10 hour drive home today, but I was able to go and do a 6 mile run this evening. The hip felt a little better, but I ate way too much junk food over the weekend and I felt terrible on the run.

Did 2.5 mile warm-up then 4x1000m repeats. Three weeks ago I did 5, but I wasn't feeling to great on the third one today, so I only managed 4, but I was still pretty pleased, as the times were quite a bit faster today than a few weeks ago.

1-3:28 New PR

2-3:27 New PR, the 3:28 didn't last long

3-3:32 Hurting here

4-3:38 Didn't try to push it too hard, as my hip was starting to get tight.

1 mile cool-down

I'll do some more miles tonight. Right now my running hasn't been going that great, there are lots of other stresses going on right now in my life, but I will continue to try to train and make running enjoyable again.

La Verkin 5k loop plus a little extra. Still really hot out.

Pretty good run tonight, went from the house over 600 North to Sky Mountain, then down to Brentwood Bowling. I ran the trail section a lot faster than normal, hit the water stop at 4 miles, then ran the last 4 all under 7 minute pace. Overall pace was 7:20, so I was happy about that.

Basketball this morning, got up late so didn't play as long.

La Verkin 5K loop with Sunny, pushing Jarren in the stroller. Then I extended over to the bridge and back.

5 easy miles tonight over to Hurricane, past Maverick up to the Middle School then home, dinner was not sitting good at all very slow and hip pain again. I'm going to give it a shot in the morning with the club run.

18 mile run down the marathon course this morning with guys from the club and Marcie. Glad I forced myself over to the run, even though it took me a very long time to get moving this morning. The run went alright, the first half I felt pretty good, miles 9 through 13 I tried to pick up the pace a little, and then I struggled some after mile 15. My hip started really bothering me again, once we hit the steeper downhill sections. I stopped right at 18 miles and my time was 2:11:45 (7:19 pace) which is ok, considering the shape I'm in right now. I walked .5 miles as a cool down to the store.

Last year I was doing 20 mile runs in the time range I ran today, so still much work to be done.

On a positive note I hit my mileage goal for the week of 60 and next week I'm going to shoot for 70.
