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 easy miles. I got new crocs today, so I am going to start tracking their mileage. I ran half a mile to the park with MiMi, JoJo, Dad, Benjamin, Stevie, Momo, and William. Then we ran a lap around the park and dropped MiMi off. While we were waiting for Mom to get there, we ran about 1.5 around the park. When Mom got to the park we ran to the trial and finished our runs. I almost felt like I was floating because of the new crocs. My last ones had a good 1500 miles on them, so they were pretty worn down.

7 easy miles, it's getting pretty hot so we need to start running in the morning. I ran all 7 miles at once with Dad and JoJo. We were going pretty quick, ran 52:30 or so.

Workout in the canyon today. 12x400 with a target of 80 and a 200 meter recovery. We woke up early for General Conference. JoJo and I ran the first 6 by ourselves. We ran 79's and 78's for most of them. I was feeling a little stiff and tight, but the pace was pretty easy. After 400 number 6 we took a quick bathroom break and Dad and Chad joined us. We mostly kept pace for the next 5 intervals, never going slower than 80 or much faster than 77. In the last 400 I went totally all out. I started out in 15, then I ran 14! Not only is this almost my record, but it was the second 100. I somehow kept my momentum in the third 100 and ran another 14. I was going so fast that my vision was shaking. At 300 I had 43, I realized I just had to run 17 to get 60. My last 100 was 16. I ran about 59.6. First time under 60! Chad ran 67, and Dad was maybe 5 seconds behind. JoJo ran 80. I'm really happy I ran that time. Especially in the last interval of such a long workout.

Roadrunner race today. It was a 3200 on the Timpview High track. I ran 3 miles in the morning with Dad and JoJo then raced around 4:00 PM. My goal was to run 80s until I couldn't then slow down to around 82s. John Hedengren paced me and JoJo. Our first lap was a bit slow, 82. Then we ran 79, then 78. I felt pretty good for the first  laps. The fourth lap was 80, we had dropped JoJo a little by this point. We had 5:19 at the mile. On the fifth lap I started no feeling so great, so we slowed down a little and ran 83. I had 6:42 at the 2000, PR! In the sixth lap I felt pretty miserable and slowed down to an 87. John was still pacing me. The next lap was worse, I ran 88. At 2800 I had  9:38. I saw I could break 11:00 so I started kicking. At 3000 I had 10:20, another PR! I ran 38 for the last 200 and finshed with 10:58(which is also a PR, but I've only ever run 3200 once about 4 years ago). JoJo ran 11:04. I'm happy with this race, but I need to work on the middle laps. My legs actually didn't hurt too bad, but I just felt pretty miserable. But 3 PRs in one race is pretty good! I probably wouldn't have run as fast without John pacing me. So I'm glad he paced me.

7 easy miles today, all in the morning. I ran 5 miles up to the canyon with Dad and JoJo, then picked up the stroller and added 2 more, also with Dad and JoJo. Then Dad drove all of us home.

5 mile long run in the canyon today. The goal was to run at 6:00 pace. I ran with Dad, JoJo, and Chad. Benjamin ran the first mile as a warmup and then did his own workout. Our first mile was about 6:00 even, I felt good, a little stiff but otherwise fine. I started to warm up a bit more in the second mile, we ran around 5:55 for that mile. JoJo was struggling and stopped at 3 miles. We had 17:55 at 3 miles. I was still feeling pretty good with 2 to go. At around 3.5 a biker wouldn't get out of the way and we had to dodge it. That made me start panicking for some reason. I started feeling really bad so we slowed down to 92's for a coupe quarters, luckily I was able to sped back up and ran the last mile in 5:52. It wasn't easy though, I still felt pretty bad. When I'm running fast little things set me off. I need to learn how to avoid panicking when I'm stressed. I think this is my fastest 5 miles though, 29:39.

JoJo ran a 2 mile tempo down the canyon today and I paced him through the last mile. William was also doing a 2 mile tempo, with Dad pacing. We did a rabbit chase, William got a minute headstart. I ran the first mile with William as a warmup. Then I waited for JoJo to catch up and ran with him. I paced a bit slow for the first quarter, 83 high, so JoJo took over the pace. We ran pretty quick for the next half mile, I'm not sure excatly what pace but somewhere around 80's. JoJo had a good kick but didn't manage to catch William. He ran 10:50, while William ran 11:48. The last mile was pretty quick, 5:19.

Usaul easy run. 7 miles, all in the morning. It was pretty windy today. Nasty headwind for the first 3.5, but a very nice tailwind once we turned around.

2 mile tempo run in the canyon today. I ran with JoJo and we did the rabbit chase with William. He got a minute headstart and had Dad pacing him. We started out a bit too quick, about 40 for the first 200. Then we slowed down and had 82 at a qaurter. The next qaurter was good 83. Then we ran 2:44 for the next 800. At the mile we had 5:28. I felt very good, relaxed and nothing hurt. In the next quarter I sped up the pace a little, JoJo stayed with me. At 2000 JoJo kind of tripped on my shoe, it startled me a bit and I sped up. I pulled a couple seconds away from him. I'm not sure what my next 2 qaurters were. They were probably somewhere around 80 though. I think I had 9:15 with a qaurter left. I saw William and Dad about ten seconds ahead so I tryed to catch them. I ran 72 fro the last quarter, but it wasn't enough to catch them. I got 10:37, new PR! William ran 11:35 I think. JoJo was just off of his PR with 10:42. My last mile was 5:09. I'm happy I was able to have such a big negative split.

6 miles, I ran less today because I took the ACT test. It is very long and can be mentally taxing. Stevie, MoMo, William, MiMi, and Bella ran a race today. Stevie and MoMo ran the 800 and everyone else ran the 1600. MiMi ran 7:39 an Bella 9:09. Both got PRs. Bella stopped a couple of times because she got confused. They were running with the older girls, grades 6 - 8. MiMi actually beat of couple of them. William didn't have a very good race 5:51 in the 1600. Stevie barely missed his record with 2:52, MoMo was right behind in 2:53.  I ran later in the afternoon. MoMo and Stevie wanted to try running the 800 again because they both missed their records, so I took hem to the track and paced them. Our first lap was good, 85. Then MoMo started struggling and fell back. Stevie kept pace though. We ran an 86 for the last lap. He got 2:51. Which is faster than his 800 earlier but still not a record. MoMo slowed down significantly and finished in 3:08. It was pretty windy, Stevie probably would have gotten a PR if not for the wind. I ran a quick 400 in 74 afterwards. I was fairly sore. We ran home and I added 3 miles. I went pretty quick, 21:46. Did a couple pickups and ran about a 6:30 last mile. It felt good to run fast.

2 mile tempo run down the canyon today. We did the usual rabbit chase, with William getting a minute headstart. I ran with JoJo. I was trying to run 5:20 pace from the start instead of going out slower and then finishing fast like last time. I ran the first mile in 5:21, JoJo was having problems with his knees and stopped at 0.75. I ran a bit slower for the next 3 quarters then picked up the pace and ran a 74 for the last quarter. I caught William and Dad at about 200 to go and then slowed down. I ran 10:39. I think its a pretty good time, not quite my PR though. I had a hard time running by my self, but it was good. Wiliam ran 11:42.

I ran in the Provo Rec track meet today. I ran 4 miles in the morning then raced in the late afternoon. JoJo, Me, Wiliam, Stevie, MoMo, MiMi, and Bella ran the 1600. All age groups ran together, so there were about 20-30 kids. I ran the first 100 in 17 seconds to avoid getting boxed in, but there were a couple of kids ahead of me anyway. The first lap went well, at about 250 meters the kids ahead of me started boxing me in so I did some manuvering and moved to the front. Sam Clayton followed me. At 400 I had 74. I felt pretty relaxed. The next lap was good too, I moved into first at some point, not sure when. I had 2:30 high at 800. I was focusing on staying relaxed and calm for the whole race. I also didn't look back very much, so I don't know how my competetion was running very well. The next lap was slower, 80. I probably could have gone faster. In the last lap I think Sam was right behind me. I had a good kick, 76. My time was 5:06.7. Sam was 2nd, then Logan was 3rd. JoJo wasn't feeling very good, he got 4th with 5:20. William ran 5:44. Stevie and MoMo ran 6:06, Stevie was a bit ahead. MiMi ran 7:47 and Bella ran 9:20. It was a good race, I stayed calm the whole time and won the race.

5 mile long run down the canyon. It was a bit different than last time though. Dad had JoJo do the pacing without looking at his watch, so we went slower than usual. We ran 6:23 for the first mile. I don't know the exact splits for the next miles but they ranged from 6:18 to about 6:30. The pace felt easy, not much harder than an easy run suprisingly. I felt really hungry though. Our finishing time was 31:50 I think. JoJo ran the whole way, that was good. On the way home I got so hungry I could barely run. I've never felt that hungry on a run before. When I got home I ate a bunch, probably 1500 calories, after that I was fine. Benjamin raced in a 5000 track meet today. It was at the byu track. He got 3rd place with 15:13. New PR by a lot. I took a video of it. Here is the link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCET7Tkciy8. Fastest time in crocs that I know of.

We ran up the canyon to get the car today. William ran 2.5 miles then turned around and ran home. We ran about 6 miles up the canyon then turned around and did a mile pickup. I could tell JoJo's knee was hurting so I let him and Dad do the pacing. We ran 5:58.

2 mile tempo down the canyon, I ran with JoJo. Dad paced William who had a minute headstart on us. My goal was to run 5:20 for the first mile and see what I could do in the second. Our first 800 was good, we had 2:40. I felt good so I ran 77 for the next 400. JoJo fell back after that, he knee started acting up because I sped up. At the mile I had 5:17. I slowed down in the next 3 quarters and at 400 to go I was about 4 seconds behind 5:20 pace. I ran about a 36 to catch William and Dad with 200 to go. I kept that pace pretty well and finshed with 10:36. New PR by a second! Mile splits were 5:17, 5:19. It was good but I need to work on keeping pace from 2000 to 2800. William ran around 11:40

7 easy miles. I felt sluggish for most of the run. At 5 miles a biker almost hit me. She was in the wrong lane, but I should have been paying more attention. It got my adrenaline going though, I didn't feel sluggish for the rest of the run. We ran around 53:30.
