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.

Drove back to Tuscaloosa today. Ran for a bit at 5:50-ish pace, then Ethan stopped me to talk for a second. He was about to go do a track workout, so I decided to go with him. Warmed up about 4 miles altogether. I did 8x200 w/ 200m recovery. I didn't feel great because I had some heavy Mexican food for lunch earlier, and a four hour car ride, so I was gonna try to just stay consistent. Went 29 on all of them. I felt pretty good, not sprinting or anything, just keeping a fast pace. After that I cooled down 2 or 3 miles, then ran the last 250m of Ethan's 800's with him for motivation, then cooled down some more and stretched. Ran grocery run after because Lakeside was closed. Good session.

I keep putting the wrong entries for their respective days. This is correct, but Sunday's run was actually yesterday's run. Today I ran 7 miles fartlek. The first 2 were figuring out my classes for the semester(that starts tomorrow), then 5 down to the park and back to the dorms. My classes are all really close to each other, but they're all more or less a mile away so that'll be good for waking my legs up in the morning(the latest class starts at 10AM). I could have done more 200's yesterday, but I think 8 was the ideal number to start because my muscles I use to go fast(glutes and upper quads) were fairly sore. Besides that I felt good, it was warmer out(high 60's) but the 10-15mph wind negated that.

3 mile WU on the river walk. Certain things felt tight at times, but I felt really strong. Ran a 2000m in 6:06. The AC at the rec wasn't working, and I wore an insulated shirt, so I got overheated really fast. Got some water and jogged a half mile. Tried to go for another 2000m and hit 1200m in 3:41-2 but the heat was destroying me. My stomach also felt like I had eaten something hot recently but I don't think I did. Even though I couldn't finish the workout a 6:06 2000m in early January shows I'm pretty strong already. At least I think so. Long CD for 12 for the day, and stretching, core, and strength after.

Morning run so I could have the rest of the day after physics w applied calc to relax/get a head start on homework. I ran on grass for the most part, and that combined with a heavy dinner last night, and a tough workout yesterday(and no breakfast) means my legs had very little life in them. Pace wasn't bad, it just didn't feel natural. My form felt a little off.

A mile between classes, then 2 mile WU to the track after class, and another mile on the track. Workout was 3x(150, 200, 300, 200, 150) trying to hit 20, 32, and 49. Actual times were 19, 32, 47.00, 31, and 20. Next one hit 21, 30, 49, 31, 20. Last set I hit 20, 32, 48.9, 32, 21.1. Normally I'd be happy I ran faster, but I wasn't going hard as much as I was trying to hit a certain pace. Got pretty close to the times on the last set though so I was starting to feel out the pace. Finished with 200m hard. I felt really good on this, form felt good throughout and I didn't tighten up after 100m. Hit 25.9 which is a huge 200m PR for me. I've never even gotten 26's. And in flats! 3/3 great workouts this week. Good conditions out today too. Mid 70's, 6mph wind, sunny... it felt great. Hurdle drills, CD for 12, stretching, core, and strength after.
