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.

7 miles with a mile pickup. It was warm today, very nice weather. First I ran 3 miles with JoJo, Dad, MoMo, Stevie, and William. Then 4 more. From mile 2 to 3 we did a mile pickup in 5:48. With about a mile left we caught Jenny and ran with her for the rest of the run. I felt good on the pickup.

Track workout today, 5X400 in 72 with a minute recovery. At least it was supposed to be a minute, we made the recoveries longer for most of them. The first one went well, JoJo and I ran 72, Dad ran 73, on the next interval JoJo didn't do so great, he fell back and was feeling pretty miserable. I ran 71.8. Dad ran 77 and had us do a 400 meter jog for our recovery. JoJo quit in the third interval and Dad ran the first 200. In the third and fourth I ran 71 highs, then in the last one I really pushed and ran 70 low. MoMo and Stevie ran some 200's. Stevie did all 5 and MoMo did 2 or 3. This workout wasn't easy but I felt strong and I was able to push through it.

Easy run today, Bella ran a new mile record, 9:34. She is only 4, so she's pretty fast. This was her first time running under 10:00. I ran a mile with Bella, Dad, and Stevie, then 4 miles with MoMo, Dad, and William, then 2 more with Dad.

Workout in the canyon today. 12X400 in 80 with a 200 meter recovery. JoJo, Dad, and I ran mostly 78's for the first 6 intervals. Chad ran 2 or so seconds ahead.My joints were feeling cranky and I was pretty tight but I warmed up by the 6th interval. For the next 4 intervals I would stay back for the first 300 and then kick in about 18 to catch Chad. In the 11th interval we slowed down to 80 to keep JoJo with us. In the last interval we really went all out. I ran 33 for the first 200, JoJo and Chad weren't far behind. Then Chad sped up a little and passed me, I passed him back and held him off by a bit. We ended up with 66, JoJo ran 69 and Dad ran 73. I'm happy I was able to kick so fast, usually I ran a lot slower in the second 200, but this time I was able to run even splits. Overall, I think it was a good workout.

Easy run today. I was in a hurry to get somewhere, so I ran 5 miles without Dad, 2 with William in a little under 15:00 and 3 with MoMo in under 22:00. After that I ran 2 slower miles with Dad and JoJo.

We thought there wa going to be a race today, but it turned out to be on Monday. Easy run today, 7 miles, 3 with MoMo, Stevie, William, and Dad. Then 4 more with William and Dad. William only had 2 miles left, but he had to run extra due to not solving his math problem fast enough.

9 easy miles. It was snowy/slushy today. It wasn't terribly cold, but the ground was to wet to do anything fast so Dad just had us run easy. First I ran 4 miles with Dad, JoJo, Chad, Stevie, Benjamin, William, and MoMo. Then I ran 5 more with Dad, Benjamin, and Chad. JoJo turned around at 1 mile because his knee was hurting. We ran with a couple of the Roadrunners for a bit. 9 miles didn't feel too hard, probably because I didn't do anything very fast this week.

Workout in the canyon today. 12X400 with a 200m revovery. Target pace was 80. I got a bloody nose a little before, and I didn't have any toilet paper or anything to stop it, but I was okay. I ran with JoJo, but he dropped out after 5 intervals beacuse his knee was hurting too bad. We ran 78,81,79,80,81 for the first five intervals, then JoJo dropped out. I got a little excited and ran 71 for the next 3 intervals. I ran about 35 for the first 200 and then 36 for the last 200 for those quarters. Then I ran 72, after that my stomauch started hurting really badly so I slowed down to 78. The next quarter was 81. In the last interval I wanted to break 70 so I started out in 16, I couldn't hold the pace though and finished in 73. It was a good workout. Musclewise the 71's didn't feel too bad. It was a little hard on my lungs though.

Workout in the canyon today, the goal was to run 2 miles in under 11:00. I haven't run that fast since October so I wasn't used to it. Dad ran the first mile with JoJo and I in 5:30. Then we slowed down a little and JoJo dropped out. I had a hard time keeping pace alone but I managed to run 5:45 for the last mile and ended up with 11:15. Dad ran somewhere around 11:40 I think.

Easy run today, I ran 4 miles in the morning and 3 at night. I ran 4 miles with Dad(pushing the stroller with Leigha), Benjamin, JoJo, William, Stevie, and MoMo. Then I added 3 miles with Dad and JoJo later that evening. I think its good to split up the run sometimes.

Same workout as on Thursday, 2 miles in the canyon in 11:00. Dad and Chad were doing their own workout, so JoJo and I ran alone. Our first mile was 5:28. But we couldn't hold pace, I ran 11:04 and JoJo had 11:03. Got to work on the last mile. My legs actually didn't hurt afterwards, so I think the problem is mental as well as in my lungs. There was also a headwind, so that slowed us down by about 10 seconds. I'm glad JoJo was able to finish. Hopefully next time I can go under 11:00. My record is 10:39 and that was set a while ago, so I should be able to go at least 20 seconds faster.

Race on the track today. I thought only Roadrunners would show up but there were some Racecats to. I ran 3 miles in the morning with Dad and JoJo, the race started at 4:30. It was a 1600 which I've actually never done before, I've always run the mile. Their was about 20 people running. I got a little boxed in for the first 100 meters, but I did some manuevering and made my way to the front. JoJo and I were trying to run 75 for the first lap and then hold that pace until we couldn't. Our first 200 was 37, right on pace. At 400 we had 75. It actually felt really easy. JoJo took over the lead and slowed the pace ddown a little. I think we ran 38 or so. I still felt good, but I was starting to get a little tired. Cole Jamison was running around 72's(his dad was pacing him) so he was about 8 seconds ahead at 600. At 2 laps we had 2:33, so we slowed the pace down to 78. I think I took off after that, JoJo might have been behind me. Whenever I run races my memory is kind of hazy. The next lap was 77, I rarely speed up in the third lap, so that was good. The next 300 didn't go so well, I ran 1:00. I was tired and didn't feel like going faster. I had 4:50 at 1500. Luckily I had a pretty good kick, I ran 17 high and finished with 5:08.0. Cole ran 4:48, JoJo ran 5:10, Sam was 4th in 5:13 and Logan Rohtankisky(I don't think I spelled that right) was 5th. I think he's only like 12, so he's pretty fast. After the race I jogged 2 laps. They were doing 4x400, so I decided to do it just for fun. My brothers JoJo, William, and Stevie were my teammates. Stevie ram the first leg in 78, I don't know what William ran, I started out pretty fast, got a bit excited and ran a 15, then my legs started hurting and I slowed down to a 17, I slowed down even more in the third 100 and ran like 19, then I kicked and just barely caught 2nd place. I ran 66. JoJo ran the final leg, but he just barely got outkicked by Jane. Our team ran 4:48. We got 3rd place.

Workout in the canyon today, 4 miles at 6:00 pace. I ran with Dad and JoJo. We ran a 1.5 warmup before we started. It was a bit cold at the start.I paced the whole way. The first mile was 6:00. I had a hard time running even splits, we ran 92,88 for the first 800. After that I settled in to the pace more. Our second mile was 5:56, I started to get a bit of a sideache at 1.75, but it mostly went anyway. The third mile was 5:54, JoJo started struggling a little. The last mile was pretty tough for him, but we managed 6:00. Our time was 23:50. Dad said this felt a lot easier than on Wednesday. I had a bit of side and chest pain, but my legs felt good. I'm happy I was able to hold pace the whole time, especially while leading.

I ran MoMo, Stevie, and WIlliams workout with them today. Dad and JoJo ran with them as well. MoMo and Stevie were doing 4x400 in 86 and William was doing 8x400 in 86. The recovery was 200 meters. We ran on the track. The first four intervals were each a little under 85. Then MoMo and Stevie stopped. We ran 83s and 84s for the next 3. We ran pretty uneven splits, starting in 40 or 41 and then slowing down to 42 or 43. On the last interval we were trying to break 80. We ran the first 200 in 40 then William started to fade. He ended up with 84. This workout felt pretty easy, nothing hurt.

2 mile workout in the canyon today. JoJo and I were trying to break 11:00 again, but this time we had Benjamin to lead us. Dad ran the first 2000. The weather was good, not too warm with a tailwind. Our first 400 was a bit slow, 84. Then we ran 81. We ran the next 800 in 2:44 and had 5:29 at the mile. I felt good, my legs and lungs were very relaxed and I felt good. We ran the next 3 quarters in about 82. Dad slowed down to a little slower than 6:00 after 2000. At 400 to go we had 9:35. I kicked in the last 400 and ran 75. My time was 10:49. I felt really strong in the last 400. JoJo and Benjamin were a bit behind with 10:54.
