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.

7 easy miles with a half mile pickup at the end. I ran with Dad and JoJo. William ran the first 2.5 and then ran home. We ran a little under 3:00 for the pickup. I felt good, it was a lot clearer today.

Workout on the track today. I was trying to run 800 with the first lap in 66. The first lap was on pace, but after that I slowed down a lot and starting freaking out. Dad had me stop. My lungs and throat weren't feeling very good afterwards. It was pretty cold, not a good day for running fast. But I also need to work on not panicking.

Light workout today. 2 miles down the canyon with JoJo and Dad. Target pace was 6:00. It was fairly snowy for part of it. The pace felt pretty hard. We weren't going very fast, but I was hungry and still tired from the workout on Thursday. I started panicking after about a mile. It just got worst after that. I was still running close to 6:00. But I was having a really hard time. JoJo pulled ahead and gapped me by around 10 seconds, Dad stayed with me. Part of the problem was that we had run 4 miles before the workout and gone straight into it. I need to work on not panicking when running feels harder than expected.

I ran a fast 500 on the track today. The goal was to run the first lap in 66 and then get to 500 in 1:25. Benjamin was done with his mileage so JoJo and I ran alone. Our first 200 was 32. Then Dad joined us. At 400 we had 66, our splits were pretty good. Then we kicked and ran 17. JoJo and I were pretty close. Our time was 1:23. Dad was a little behind.

600 on the track today. Benjamin paced me and JoJo. Dad and William ran the last 400. Our first 200 was 32, then we ran 34. Our target was 66 for the first lap and then 36 or so for the next 200. So this was right on pace. We ended up with 1:41.0. JoJo and I were pretty much tied. Dad was a couple seconds behind. William ran 77, so he was 8 seconds behind. It felt good to run fast. My muscles felt tired in the last 100, but I was able to push myself.

Usual Saturday workout. 2x2 miles at 6:00. I ran with Dad, JoJo and Chad. William ran the first interval. Bonnie ran the first mile of the first interval. She ran 5:59. It was pretty rainy when we started. I sped up a little in the last quarter and Chad chased me. I beat him by a second or

. My time was 11:47 JoJo and Dad were about ten seconds behind. It started snowing pretty hard during the next interval. It was pretty miserable. I barely broke 12:00. Chad was a little behind. Not sure how far behind Dad and JoJo were.

7 miles with a one mile pickup. I ran with Dad and JoJo. It was pretty clear with a couple snow and ice patches. The pickup went well. I paced for most of it. We ran 5:45. It felt good, but the ice slowed us down a little.

It was pretty warm today so we did a track workout. The goal was to run 800 meters with the frist lap in 68, and then 70 or so. Benjamin was pacing me and JoJo and Dad and William ran the first 400. We ran the first 200 in about 34. At 400 I had 70. Benjamin was a little ahead. I started fading after that. I'm not sure what I had at 600. In the last 200 I started kicking. Dad ran the last 100 with me. He ran 17.4 and I was dropping him. I probably ran about 17  for the last 100. My time was 2:23. Missed the record by a second. JoJo ran 2:27. He didn't have it today.

We ran 37 for the last 200. JoJo was a bit ahead. We ran 11:24. This is the fastest we have run in this workout. JoJo ran  really well.

Track workout today. JoJo and I paced ourselves for 800 meters. Dad ran the first lap and William ran the last. The goal was to run 68 and 70 or so. Our first 200 was 33. I felt pretty good, then we ran 35. We had 69 at 400. I'm not sure when, but JoJo started dropping back at some point. The next 200 was rather slow, 38 or so. I was feeling pretty tired at that point. Then with about 100 meters to go I started kicking pretty hard, I think I ran 16 low for the last 100. My time was 2:21.8, PR, JoJo ran 2:22, PR as well. I need to run the 3rd 200 better next time, but it was a good run.

Same workout as on Tuesday, but Benjamin was pacing this time and JoJo didn't run, his knee was hurting. The first lap went okay, we ran 69. I was tired though. I slowed down quite a bit after that. The next 200 was pretty slow, and I didn't kick super hard. I ran 2:25. I'm still tired from Tuesday. Also mentally I had a hard time.

7 miles with a mile pickup towards the end. I ran 3 miles with Dad, JoJo, William, Stevie, MoMo, and Benjamin. Then 4 more with Dad and JoJo, we did a mile pickup from 2 to 3. Our first half mile was 2:55, then we ran 2:55 again. I felt good, the pace felt moderately easy.

We were going to do 6X800 today, but Dad had us stop after 2 intervals. Chad, JoJo, Dad and I ran the first interval in about 3:02. My muscles felt tired, especially on the uphills. Bonnie, Stevie, and MoMo ran the first quarter. William didn't run because he's a little sick. I ran the next interval in about 3:02 as well. JoJo was with me, but Dad and Chad were behind. Chad really faded. I did not feel good, my muscles hurt and I was having a hard time getting enough air. Dad has us stop after that. I jogged three more miles with JoJo. Something was off today, might of been the weather, might of been sickness or fatigue. It could have been a combination of all three. I hope I'll feel better next week.
