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.

letting my fans know i am alive and well, and also getting some decent 90-minute runs and strength training in lately. been super busy with things like work and academics but i'll enter all my training whenever it clears up(should be some point in the next few weeks, probably immediately after tax day). i'm gonna try to do a 30-mile long run the saturday after next and if i get that done i'll definitely be here talking my talk lol. haven't ran yet today because of a pretty nasty storm, but once it clears up tomorrow it'll be 70's and sunny for the next week. i'm gonna get some great runs in.

it rained all night so running on sandy should have sucked. lotta mud, lotta hills. however, i got my new shoes in the mail yesterday, plus a pair of 2" shorts(haven't worn short shorts since like 2017), so i guess that was a recipe for success.

11 miles at 6:18 pace with the last 4 in 24:07, 136 avg HR. felt amazing the entire way, i kept expecting the hills to finally do me in but it never came. a few days ago i felt super good on my second run of the day and ended up running 5:54 pace like it was 7-flat, and ever since then i've just felt great on every mile of every run. i'll probably run again tonight since we're supposed to have a severe storm hit us from basically midnight to midnight tomorrow(i'll say it for the umpteenth time, gotta love spring in the south), so not sure what i'll be able to get in. i might end up running over 100 miles this week for the first time in forever, but only if i can get in something tomorrow, so fingers crossed. if not i'll definitely clear that next week, then workouts start the week after that. 

PM - 5, 6:33 pace. saw ethan running while i was stretching beforehand, he asked if i'd finish his run with him and i figured eh, it's been a while since i ran with someone. took it a bit easier because his breathing seemed labored(he said he ran a 15:20 5k last week so i'm kind of surprised), then once he dropped off after 3 miles ran the pace i wanted to from the start. ended up being about 6-flat, felt easy. good day of training. if i get a few more days like this in before workouts start, i'll be very excited to see what i can do when i really let loose :)

AM - 13 on mural, 6:26 pace. it stormed last night, so not only was the course soaked and windy, but also nearly 70 degrees with full humidity by 6:30am. the run should have sucked, and it did, stayed strong though. after like 4 miles the average pace never got slower than 6:27 or faster than 6:26, so i was running good splits even if i felt like i was about to catch on fire. 

also, if any southern vets have recommendations on combatting humidity on runs, would love to hear it. jogging 7:30's during the hotter months like i've done in the past is one thing, but aerobic runs like this in warm weather mean getting uncomfortably close to that red line, and i'm not trying to cross it on a run meant for recovery

PM - 5, 6:35 pace. i work this afternoon until late so my only chance to run was around noon. since the recovery time was small plus it's been a solid week of decent mileage, decided to take it easy... after running the first mile in 6:01 :)

sotd: stay fresh - j rocc

6-mile jog on the track, 7:12 pace. felt tired from yesterday, i'm pretty sure it's more to do with a lack of recovery than the running itself. feeling a lot better now that i got the blood flowing

AM - 11 miles on sokol, 6:16 pace. sokol isn't an easy course, so flying on it without putting in too much effort is a huge mental boon for that first workout next week. might do some short hills this week, but if i do it won't be anything too hard.

AM - 11 miles on sokol, 5:59 pace. if yesterday was a boon, not sure what you'd call this. double boon? boon squared? boooon? either way, this was awesome, and running it on a hilly course with an avg HR of 139 makes it even better. last 5 miles in 5:58, 5:55, 5:54, 5:47, 5:44

PM - 3 on mural, 6:16 pace. probably would have taken the PM off, but we have a nasty storm hitting us from tonight to tomorrow night so i probably won't get a chance to run in the morning. all i got was 3 before the storm hit WAY faster than expected
