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.

I ran in a track meet at American Fork High today. I did the 800. It was almost 80 degrees, so I'm glad I didn't do the 3000. Bella, MiMi, MoMo, Stevie, William, Bonnie, and JoJo also ran. I was trying to run about 66 or 67 for the first lap and then not die too badly. The first lap was pretty good 68. I was behind Cole and another kid. In the third 200 I slowed down a lot and I was having a hard time breathing. I don't know what I had at 600. I got passed by 3 people, one was JoJo and I don't know. I started kicking after I got passed for the third time. I passed JoJo and one other kid but I couldn't catch the last kid. I got 2:23.39. It was okay, but I was a little disappointed. I felt like I couldn't push hard enough, my muscles weren't even hurting much after the race. Here are the results: https://usatfutahyouth.weebly.com/uploads/6/5/6/7/6567024/may_1st_results2.pdf. In the evening I added a mile. I wanted to see how tired I really was so I did the last half mile as fast as I could. I ran 77 for the first 400 and 73 for the last. So I still had a lot in me. Next time I'm going to try to really give it all I got.

We did 200s at the track today. JoJo, Me, William, Stevie, and MoMo all ran a 200. JoJo and I ran together. I ran 28.8 and JoJo ran 29.9. It was a good time. I basically ran my 100m record twice. William ran a little under 33 I think. MoMo ran a bit under 35 and Stevie was about 0.1 seconds behind him.

We did 300s today. I ran without a watch so Dad timed me. I got 45.0. JoJo ran 46.8. William ran 52.9, Stevie and MoMo ran around 55. It was good, but I felt like I wasn't really sprinting. I need to learn how to use more of my strength.

I ran 7 miles with Dad. We ran up the canyon to get the car. We did a fast last mile. My legs were tired and feeling strained so I paced unevenly. With 400 meters to go I kicked and ran 75 for the last quarter. I got 5:25, Dad ran 5:44. I didn't feel very good but I still had a good kick.

Dad and Benjamin went to a race in Portland so JoJo and I did a lighter workout by ourselves today. We ran 4 miles up the canyon then turned around and ran 2 fast miles. Our first mile was 5:58. Then William joined us. We sped a little then slowed down. At 2800 we had 10:28. Our last qaurter was 90. We ran 11:58. I felt good, it wasn't very hard. JoJo and I ran just under 1:00:00 for 8 miles.

300 meter time trial again today. We were going to run in the USATF track meet but we registered too late. I ran 44.4, JoJo ran 45.5. Both are PR's.  William broke 52. Stevie and MoMo were a bit under 55 I think. I felt like I wasn't reaching my top speed again. But it was faster than last time, so that's good.

7 miles up the canyon with a mile pickup at the end. JoJo's ankles were hurting so he only ran 5 miles. Dad, Benjamin, and I ran 7 miles up the canyon. We did a mile pickup at the end, Benjamin ran at his own pace. I paced the whole mile. We were running pretty fast. 87's or so. I felt good and pretty strong even though I was tired. In the last qaurter I kicked pretty hard. I ran 16 for the first 100, then I slowed down a little. I don't know what my splits were but my time was 70. I ran 5:23 for the mile. Dad ran 5:33 with the last qaurter in 80. Benjamin was under 5:00, but I'm not sure what the exact time was.

8 miles today.  I ran with Dad. We ran pretty easy but the last couple miles were faster. My back was hurting, but it wasn't too bad. We ran the last mile under 7:00 so we could break 1:00:00. My legs were pretty tired. We ran around 59:58.  I added a mile with MiMi later in the evening.

8 easy miles. Dad and Chad ran a half marathon tempo run. JoJo, Me, William, Stevie, MoMo, and Bonnie ran easy. I ran 5 miles with everyone. At the end we kicked and my heel started hurting again. I added 3 miles with JoJo and it stopped hurting so I think it's mostly better.

I ran the 1600 at an Orem Rec track meet today. JoJo, William, Stevie, MoMo, and Bella also ran. It was windy, maybe 8mph. The first lap was very good. JoJo and I ran 72, I felt good. We ran 74 for the second lap. JoJo and I were still together. In the third lap we slowed down and we ran somewhere around 80, maybe 81. I was tired but I kept pushing. I don't remember 800 to 1400 very well. It was kind of a blur. JoJo passed me at some point, so I started kicking. I think I ran the last 200 in 36. I ran 5:04.51, that is a 3 second PR. JoJo ran 5:07. We both ran well. William had a stomachache, so he only ran 6:03. MoMo had a good race, he ran 6:02 and got outkicked by a girl at the end. Stevie ran pretty well, 6:07. Bella ran 9:14. MiMi fell at the start of the race and got over so she didn't run. I'm happy with this race.

8 miles with a 1.5 pickup. I ran with Dad, Benjamin, and JoJo. Benjamin ran a 1.5 mile pickup at his own pace. JoJo, Dad, and I ran together at a little slower than 6:00. I was feeling good for the first half mile with a slight sideache. Then a biker was in my lane and wouldn't move and my sideache suddenly started hurting way more. For some reason when I panic my body hurts way more than it should. I was able to keep running the same pace but it was a lot harder than it should have been. I don't know what time we ran. Benjamin ran 7:06.

I ran the 3000 at a USATF track meet today. JoJo, Bonnie, William, Stevie and MoMo also ran. It was at Corner Canyon high in draper. Corner Canyon is a pretty windy track. The wind wasn't super bad though. JoJo and I planned on running even 80s. The first lap was good, 78 or 79. I was tempted to go with the leaders but I ran the right pace. At 800 we had 2:37. Then we ran 2:40 for the next 800. JoJo fell back at 1600. I kept pace pretty well though. I don't remember my exact splits, but I ran mostly even 80's for the next couple laps. But I slowed down with 2 laps to go and at 2600 I had 8:42. 2 seconds behind pace. I had a good kick but just barely missed breaking 10:00. I ran 10:00.16. That is a 20 second PR. I'm very happy with it. Cole just barely broke the state record in 9:35. There were also 2 other kids ahead of me. JoJo ran 10:13. A small PR. MoMo, who was running the 3000 for the first time, ran 12:01. Stevie ran 12:21, also his first time running the 3000. William ran 11:28. Bonnie ran 12:15. Hopefully I can run 9:40 or 9:30 at Nationals.

Race: Provo Rec Track Meet (1 Miles) 00:05:12, Place overall: 4, Place in age division: 2

4.501.005.50

I ran in the Provo Rec track meet today. It was pretty hot. 81 degrees. As the annoucer said, "perfect weather". He obviously didn't know what he was talking about. JoJo, William, Stevie, MoMo, MiMi, and Bella also ran. MiMi and Bella ran first. Bella ran 9:15 I think. MiMi ran 3 laps and thought she was done, so she stopped. It took a couple of minutes to convince her to keep going. She ended up last behind Bella. The boys raced next. At the start a couple of things went wrong. First, I started in lane 3 behind a little kid so I had to do some manuvering to get into the lead pack, and second, my watch didn't start. After the first lap my mouth was really dry. I stayed with JoJo, Logan, and Sam through the first 2 laps, then they put a bit of a gap on me. I slowed down a lot in the last 2 laps, I wasn't feeling very motivated for some reason. I finished in 4th with 5:12. JoJo won in 5:02. That is a big PR for him. Sam was second with 5:03,  and Logan ran 5:05 in third. William ran 5:50, Stevie ran 5:58. That is a big PR for him. MoMo mostly gave up after Stevie pulled away from him and ran 6:12. It wasn't a good race for me, but I'm okay with it. At least JoJo and Stevie had good races.

I ran 8 miles and helped pace William through a fast mile on the track. The goal was for William to run 2:56 through 800 and then speed up and hopefully run under 5:50. MoMo ran a fast mile as well. Dad and I paced William and MoMo through about 600, then William and I sped up so we would be on pace at 800. At 800 I had 2:55, William was a bit behind. After that he fell back more and more. He ran 5:59. MoMo ran a PR though, 6:03 I think.

9.5 miles with a 5 mile tempo run. I ran with Dad, JoJo, and Chad. JoJo did the pacing without a watch so Dad could see what an honest effort was to him. JoJo ran a lot better than a month ago. He ran 6:09 for the first mile, then pretty even 6:00's for the next couple of miles. He struggled a bit in the last mile, but never gave up. We ran a bit under 6:00 for the last mile and ended up with 30:03. My legs were pretty tired. I felt like I could have gone a bit faster and maybe kept pace for longer, especailly with fresher legs.
