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.

8 miles with a mile pickup. I just ran with Dad because JoJo is on a campout. Josiah ran 6 miles with William, and Nathaniel ran 4 miles with Stevie and MoMo. We ran a bit under 6:00. My legs were kind of tired, but not too bad.

Race: USATF Developmental Meet (0.932 Miles) 00:04:40, Place overall: 3, Place in age division: 2

3.502.506.00

I ran a USATF track meet today. It was in Nephi. We had some trouble getting there. Dad drove William down early so he could do long jump, the plan was for Mom to drive Stevie, MoMo, Bonnie, and I to the race later, but our van's brakes broke so she couldn't get us there. Luckily Dad was able to drive back home, pick us up, and get us to the race. We got there pretty late though so Stevie and MoMo missed there race and Bonnie and I only had a couple of minutes to warm up. Bonnie and I ran the 1500. I started out with Cole and Truman. We ran 70 for the first lap. I slowed down to 75 in the second lap. The third lap was 77 and I ran 57 for the last 300. My time was 4:40. That is an 8 second PR. For some reason it didn't feel like a real race, and I was hardly tired at all afterwards. It was weird. I was third behind Truman and Cole. Cole got another State record with 4:24. I was close to Truman, he ran 4:37. Bonnie ran 5:39. William jumped 3'71 in the long jump. That is pretty good, it was the first time anyone in our family has done a field event. Later in the evening Stevie, MoMo, and William ran the 1500 at Orem High because they missed their races. I was supposed to pace William but Stevie was ahead so I paced him. I ran the first lap in 85, Stevie was right behind me, then we ran 87 or 88. William was behind with MoMo. Our next lap was 87, Stevie and I had 4:00 flat with 400 to go. He ran 5:28. That is a huge PR for him. He ran 5:58 in the 1600 last week, so this is a very big improvement. MoMo slowed down a lot when he saw Stevie pulling away. I don't know what time he ran. William was sore from long jump, he was a bit ahead of MoMo. Benjamin ran the Utah Valley Half Marathon. He had a good race, 1:06:33 in 4th place. We hired a motorcycle driver and cameraman to film him. This is the video of the last 2km of his race:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6eQtITh3XM

8 miles with a 2 mile pickup. At about 800 I took the lead for a little and kept pace, that made JoJo panic, so I slowed down and went behind. Dad and I stayed behind while Benjamin and JoJo put a gap on us. I feeling pretty frustrated. Every time I pass JoJo I have to slow down. So I feel like I'm not getting any training done. Dad is going to have me start doing workouts by myself on Wednesdays, but not this week because we are running State championships. JoJo runs much better on the track than in the canyon, maybe he has a mental block or something. Dad and I ran a little under 12:00. JoJo and Benjamin were a couple seconds ahead.

Race: USATF Utah Association Championships (1.864 Miles) 00:09:54, Place overall: 3, Place in age division: 2

4.502.006.50

JoJo,Bonnie, William, Stevie, and I ran the USATF Utah Association Championships today. It was at UVU. Bonnie ran before the boys race. She got 12:13. Everyone else ran in the boys race. It was hot, around 80°. So Dad told JoJo and me to pace a bit slower. He said run 82's until the last kilometer, then speed up. I started out a bit fast for the first lap. It was 79 high or 80. Then I slowed down to 82. JoJo was still with me at that point. Cole was prety far ahead. Then Simon Barlow also might have been ahead. Corbin Randall was ahead of Simon but behind Cole. At about 1400 I sped up to 79's and 78's. I passed Simon and caught up to Corbin by about 1600. I stayed with him and ran 81's for 2 laps. I should have put a gap on him. I feel like I could have, but I didn't. With about 600 to go I put a 2 or 3 second gap on him. He kicked and put a 4 second gap on me. I ran a decent last 400, about 78. My time was 9:54. I'm really happy with that. The weather wasn't good, but I still got a 6 second PR. Corbin won the 15-16 division in 9:50. Cole ran 9:37(he won the whole race even though he's in 13-14). JoJo ran 10:19. He had a hard time when I sped up. Full results here: https://www.runitgreen.com/meet-results. William ran 11:34. The heat was getting to him. He ran a good first mile, but couldn't keep the pace. Stevie ran 12:29. He also had a tough time.

I ran the Ward Fun Run today. Benjamin, William, Stevie, MoMo, Bella, and I ran. It was a 2 mile out and back course. The first half is downhill and the last half is uphill. I ran 5:20 for the first mile. Then my legs basically gave out after that. I could only manage 11:36. It was pretty bad, but I'm fine with it. I had a good race yesterday. Benjamin also had a hard time. He ran 10:39. His PR is over a minute faster than that. Everyone else ran slower times than usual too.

8 miles by myself with a 2 mile pickup. I ran around 11:30. My first mile was a bit under 6:00. I sped up a bit in the next mile and my last 400 was about 80. I felt pretty good.

Long run with a 5 mile tempo. JoJo was still feeling sick so he ran easy today. Dad, Chad, and I ran a 5 mile long run at 6:00. We ran 92 for the first quarter. Then we sped up to 88's and 89's. At 1200 Dad had to go to the bathroom, so we had to stop for a couple minutes. We ran mostly 6:00 pace for the next 3 miles. A bit faster sometimes. Dad told me to go ahead in the last mile. After 4 miles I still felt good at 6:00 pace, so I thought I could speed up to 5:30 or so in the last mile. I ran 1:00 for the first 300 of the last mile. Then my legs started really hurting. I slowed down to 22 and just couldn't really run anymore. I slowed down enough that Dad and Chad caught up to me with about 400 to go. They dropped me by a couple seconds. Chad ran 82 for the last 400 and Dad ran 83. My total time was 29:49. I think I was low on glycogen, so when I sped up I ran out of fuel and couldn't run anymore.

8 miles with four 400 meter pickups. I ran them in 74, 69, 71, 62. JoJo ran the second one with me and the other ones a bit slower. He is still recovering from being sick. William ran with Dad. I felt good, in the first one I felt a bit tight. But on the other ones I felt good. In the last interval I ran 16,15,15, and then 16. I was trying to focus on having a longer more relaxed stride.

I ran 2 races today. First I ran the 3000, then about an hour later I ran the 1500. I have only ever done two races in one day once, but it was a while ago. It was a pretty small race. Only 10 people in the entire field of the 3000. Top 6 qaulify for the AAU National Championships. JoJo and me  were the only people in my age division. The plan for the 3000 was for me to pace JoJo to 2000 i 6:40, then run 3:10 for the last 1000. JoJo fell back after a couple laps, but I had was on pace at 2K. I couldn't speed up to 3:10 though. I think I ran 82, then 40 or so. My last lap was pretty good, 76. I ran 9:58. JoJo was 2nd in 10:30. William and Stevie had bad races. Stevie especially, he ran slower than 5:00 for the last 1K. Dad told him if he didn't run well in the 1500 we wouldn't bring him to Nationals, that got to him. He ran 5:36 in the 1500, MoMo ran 5:33, a PR for him. JoJo, William, and I raced after them. I actually didn't feel very tired from the 3000. JoJo and I ran the first lap in 74. Then he fell back. I ran 74 for the next lap. In the third lap I really focused on keeping the momentum going. I ran 76. Dad was yelling at me that I could get a PR. So I kicked in 54(equivalent to 72 400). My time was 4:38.39. About a 2 second PR. JoJo ran a bit under 5:00 and William ran 5:29. I'm really happy with the 1500. The 3000 was good too. I didn't feel very motivated in the 3000 running by myself though. Hopefully at Nationals I can go under 9:40 in the 3000 and 4:30 in the 1500.

8 miles with a 2x1 mile workout. The first mile was uphill with headwind. I really struggled. I think I ran the first 400 in 88, my legs were hurting, my last 400 was especially slow. Barely under 1:40. JoJo and William also had a hard time. Dad was pacing them. They were only a bit under 7:00. The second interval was better. I started out in 79 and basically ran even pace to 1200. I kicked in about 77 or 76. My time was 5:16. William and JoJo ran better too. They ran 6:14 with Dad. After the workout Dad had us do a 400 meter pickup. I ran 66, JoJo, William, and Dad ran 83. I felt pretty good about this workout. But I need to work on pushing harder even when the conditions are bad,
