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.

Ran 7 miles today, all in the morning. First I ran 2 miles with Dad, MoMo, and JoJo in about 15:53. Then JoJo, Dad and I ran 5 miles up the canyon to retrieve the car. My back wasn't hurting very much. We ran 39:27 I think.

Ran the usual Saturday run. 2x2 miles at a little under 6:00. I ran with Chad, JoJo, and Dad. Stevie and William ran the first 1200 with us, Stevie barely broke 4:30, if he hadn't he would've had to run an extra mile. Bonnie made it to the mile in a little over 6:00 with us. I felt very relaxed, and it wasn't a whole lot harder than a normal run. I ran 11:53 with Chad, and Dad and JoJo ran 11:57. In the next interval JoJo paced. Our first mile was somewhere around 5:55. It was harder than the last interval, but I still felt pretty good. Our time was 11:54 I think. Whenever I do these workouts I want to go faster, but JoJo has a hard time so I usually stay back. Later, MoMo was baptized by JoJo. It was JoJo's 16th birthday, so he had been ordained a priest the day before. Stevie and I got to be the witnesses. MoMo's toe popped out of the water the first time, so JoJo had to baptize him again.

Similar run to yesterday, except on a trial in St. George. It was warm and really nice there. I ran three miles with Dad, Julia, and all ny brothers. The trial was pretty good. We played a game where no one was allowed to pass Julia, if you did you got smacked(lightly). After that we ran a mile with Stevie, then another with William and then 2 more miles.

Today we all ran a fast mile in St. George. It was warm, first we measured out a mile. We made marks every 100 meters using the red dirt/chalk. Then JoJo and I ran back to the start. Benjamin paced JoJo and I for the fast mile, William was spaced by Dad and had a 30 second headstart. I ran without the watch so I wouldn't panic or anything. Our first quarter was 76, I felt pretty good. The next one was 78. If I had been wearing a watch, I probably would have freaked out, but I felt like we had held the same pace. The third quarter was 77, this felt a bit harder, but I didn't feel terrible. In the last quarter we passed William and Benjamin said I could get the record if I kicked. When I started kicking JoJo fell back a little. My last quarter was 76. I ran 5:07, which is a 5 second PR. JoJo ran 5:10, just missed his record. I think my time was a bit faster than at home because of the lower elevation, but not by much. I haven't really improved very much since I was 11 in the mile. Almost 3 years ago I ran 5:16 on the track, but I can't seem to get much faster than that. My 5K has improved by almost a minute. I guess I still just have some mental block against the mile. Anyway, it was a good time, and I'm pretty happy with it.

7 easy miles today. I wasn't feeling sore or anything from yesterday's mile. I felt a little sluggish for the first few miles, but after I warmed up I felt great.

7 miles today. First I ran 3 miles with Dad and Benjamin pushing the strollers, Bella and Leigha in one, MiMi in the other. MiMi ran the first mile and a half in under 13:00. All the boys stayed with her, but Mom and Julia fell back. Then we ran home, Bella wanted to earn a prize so she ran part of it with us, then she tripped so Mom took her. Benjamin, William, Stevie, and I sped up to a little under 7:00. William and Stevie dropped back after a while, but I stayed with Benjamin. Then I ran 4 more miles with Dad, JoJo, and Benjamin. We did a fast last 800. The goal was 3:00, JoJo and I ran 2:47, Dad ran 2:53. We started kicking on the hill and Dad couldn't keep up. I felt good during the pickup.

Usual Saturday run today. 2x2 tempo run. Bonnie, Stevie, and MoMo ran the first mile with us. Stevie and MoMo fell behind a little though. Bonnie made it in 5:59. I was feeling good. William fell behind at 1.5 or so. JoJo, Dad, Chad, and I ran 12:00 flat. I felt pretty relaxed. In the next interval, JoJo was having a hard time and fell behind after a half mile. I took the lead and picked up the pace a little. We had 5:53 at the mile. I sped up a bit more after that to 84, 85. My last 400 was 81. Chad and Dad were a little behind me, 5:31 last mile. I felt good running that pace.

I ran 1200 on the track today. Benjamin was pacing JoJo and I. I ran without a watch. Our first lap was 74, JoJo was having a hard time with his knee and also had a sideache. Our next lap was 75, it felt hard but I was still doing okay. Our last lap was 74, this was definetly pretty hard and I don't think I could have kept going to the mile. But my legs didn't really hurt, they just felt heavy. I think my lungs are behind my legs, so I'm not getting enough oxygen to fuel them. I'm pretty happy that I was able to run 5:00 pace for three laps. Afterwards I ran home and added a mile with Stevie, then 2 more by myself.

I helped pace William in the 1200 today. His target was 84's to failure. We ran the first 800 on pace but then faltered a little, so he stopped at 1200 with 4:15. I felt pretty tired from yesterday. When we were done I ran home and added 4 miles wih Dad and JoJo. We went pretty slow, Dad had us pull him to a 35 in the 200.

Usual Saturday run today. 2x2 miles with Dad, JoJo, and Chad. William and Bonnie ran the first mile in the first interval. It was snowy so we couldn't see the starting mark. We just guessed where it was. Our first mile was 6:03, then we speed up and ran 5:46 for the last mile. Our next interval was 11:59. I felt more worn out than last time. It's probably a combination of running on the snow and maybe some fatigue from the 1200 on Thursday.

We ran a tempo run with Julia today. Her target was 2 miles at 7:00 per mile. Our first mile was 6:49 and our second was somewhere aorund 6:55. She ran a good time. Afterwards, Dad, JoJo, Benjamin and I ran home. We did a fast last half mile in 2:43. I felt pretty good, but I was tired afterwards.

7 miles at once today. Mostly easy, but we did two 200 meter pickups. The first was 33 high. In th e next Dad told us to try and break 30. We ran 29.8 or so. Myleft ankle started hurting after that. It was injured last year, so I think it flared up again from doing to much sprinting and fast runnning.

JoJo and I ran a fast mile today. Our first lap was 74, we mentally didn't have it after that and stopped at 800 in 2:33. I felt really tired during it. Then I ran with MoMo and Stevie. They were doing 1200 but stopped at 800. MoMo tried again and ran 4:29, but Stevie didn't run.

Stevie was trying to redeem himself today. William also ran a fast 1200. Stevie got a headstart of 100 meters on William. I ran 4:10 with William, Stevie was with Dad. He stopped after 800. We decided to put Stevie in a pacing box, so he couldn't slow down.  It worked, he had a panic attack in the second lap, but he recovered and ran 4:30.

It was very snowy today. We couldn't do anything fast, so we just ran easy. First I ran 4 miles with Dad, JoJo, Bonnie, William, Stevie, and MoMo. Benjamin ran part of it with us. Then I ran 2 more miles with Dad, JoJo, Bonnie, William, and Benjamin. Then 2 more miles with Dad, JoJo, and Benjamin. I was pretty hungry and I felt kind of weak for the first 4 miles. But it wore off.

Workout on the track today. The goal was to run the first lap in 66, and the second in 80. JoJo and I ran with Benjamin pacing. Our first 200 was 33, which is on pace but it would've been better to run a 32. Then I ran 34.7 or so. I was pretty tired in the second 200. JoJo dropped back after that and Dad joined us. I kept the momentum going a little and ran 38 for the next 200. My legs and arms starting feeling really heavy in the last 200, but I still ran 40. My time was 2:26, which was the target time but I ran the wrong splits. My foot hurt a little, but it didn't really affect how I ran..

We also ran out last half mile fast. Our time was 2:55. JoJo kicked a little at the end. I didn't go with him though.

It was very snowy in the canyon today, so the only workout we could do was 6x800 up the hill near our house. JoJo, Chad, Dad, and I ran all of them. MoMo ran 2x0.25, Bonnie ran 5x0.25, Stevie ran 5x0.25 as well and William ran 2x0.5. Target pace was 3:00. We ran around 2:55 for most of them. In the 4th interval we slowed down for William a little, he ran 3:07. I was a little ahead. The 5th was also slower, 3:05 I think. I had a hard time warming up, I actually felt the best in the last interval. I could have gone faster in the last one but I held back so JoJo wouldn't get aggravated.
