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 again. We've been doing a lot of faster miles lately. I ran with Dad and JoJo. We ran 5:54 for the pickup.

Race: Murray Fun Days 5K (3.107 Miles) 00:17:42, Place overall: 5, Place in age division: 2

2.893.116.00

Almost my entire family ran in the Murray Fun Days 5K today. Dad, Mom, Benjamin, Jenny, Nate(Jenny's husband), Julia, JoJo, Me, William, Stevie, MoMo, MiMi, and Bella(only 4 years old!) all ran. It was pretty hot at the start. Maybe 80º. I started out conservatively. The pace for the first mile felt pretty easy. I had 5:46 at one mile. That was too slow, so I sped up to about 5:30 pace. I saw Cole in the distance so I was trying to catch him. He started out with his Dad and had about 5:14 at one mile. At two miles I had 11:14(5:28 mile split). I passed Cole a little later. But as soon as I passed him, he passed me back. I got really tired after that and slowed down a lot. I think I lost motivation when Cole passed me and started gapping me. I ran pretty slow until about 1K to go. I thought maybe I could still outkick Cole. I got pretty close to him but didn't kick quite fast enough. At three miles I had 17:10. My total time was 17:42. I got 5th overall, 2nd in my age division. Cole was a bit ahead with 17:38. He's way faster than me in the mile. Last week he ran 4:36. That's faster than my 1500! I was only 4 seconds behind him so his endurance is not super great. 17:42 is a good time for the conditions. I'm happy with it. Benjamin won the race, I think he ran under 15:40. JoJo had a pretty hard time, he ran somewhere around 18:00. William ran 20:22. MoMo ran 20:50. Stevie's foot really hurt, he could only manage 25:00. Nate ran pretty well. He got 23:31 I think. Jenny has been injured for a while, so she hasn't run three miles straight for a month or so. She ran about 24:30. This is MiMi and Bella's first official 5K. MiMi ran around 27:30, and Bella ran 32:00 I think. Mom and Julia paced Bella and MiMi. Dad paced MoMo for the first mile and then sped up. I'm not sure what time he got.

Workout today. 2x1 mile, first interval and the second one downhill. Dad paced William. Jojo ran about the first 800 with me in the first interval. I started pretty fast, split 2:49 at 800. Then I basically held that pace to the end. I ran 5:39. Jojo fell back and ran around 5:50. William and Dad ran 6:30 I think. The next interval was interesting. I can't remember the exact splits but I ran a pretty good pace. In the last 400 I got confused, for some reason I though it was the third 400 but when I realized that it was my last quarter I sped up a lot. I ran 45, 36 for the last quarter. My time for the mile was about 5:27. I need to overcome this mindset of running slow in the third quarter, or in this case what I thought was the third quarter. This workout was better than last week, especially for William.

I ran in the USATF Region 11 Championships today, it was basically a repeat of state(same venue and same time), but it was about 10º hotter. JoJo, Stevie, and William raced as well. I started out running about on pace 82 for the first couple of laps. There were two guys ahead of me from the gun but I gained on them a little. I don't remember my exact splits, but they were somewhere around 3:30, 3:37, and 3:38 by kilometer. I felt good for the first kilometer, but the heat got to me after that and I couldn't go any faster. My time was 10:15. I got 3rd place(out of 4 people in my age division). I think I could've run 9:45 in optimum conditions. But it was a good race for how hot it was. JoJo ran 10:43, William 12:10, and Stevie ran 15:02. His foot was pretty bad.

I did a mile time trial today, it was our traditional pre-birthday mile. I was really hoping to break 5:00 today. Benjamin started out in 74.6, it felt pretty easy, I was relaxed. The next lap was a bit slow, 75.6, Benjamin said he kinda fell asleep because it was hot. When I saw I had 2:30 at 800 I surged and ran a 16.6 for the next 100! That took Benjamin by surprise, I let him take back over the pace. He realized I had a lot more juice than he thought. At 1000 my legs were starting to pay for the surge but I kept on pushing. We split 73.3 for the third lap. I started my kick with about 250 to go this time instead of 100. I'm glad Dad yelled at me to start my kick. With 100 to go my legs really hurt but I kept pushing. I had a 17 second last 100 and finished in 4:57.6. I'm really happy I could break 5:00! Thanks to Benjamin for pacing me and Dad and Stevie for cheering me on. Almost 6 years ago I broke 6:00 in the mile for the first time, it has been a long journey from sub 6:00 to sub 5:00.

8 easyish miles. I had to go somewhere in the morning so I didn't get around to running until later and I was by myself. I ran 2 miles in 13:59, then a couple of hours later I added 6 more. I don't know why but I felt like running fast. My first 3 miles were about 22:00 minutes. Then I decided I wanted to run sub 7:00 minute average. So I sped up the pace to about 24 seconds per 100. At 2 miles to go my stomach started hurting. I had only eaten dinner like 2 hours ago so I was still full. I slowed down a bit, at 1 mile to go I was even with 7:00 average. I ran 6:43 for the last mile. My total time for all 8 miles was 55:42. Again, I don't know why I wanted to run that pace, but it felt good. I think that's my fastest easy run for 8 miles.

5 mile long run today. JoJo ran the first 3 miles and William ran from 1 to 4. Dad and Chad ran with me. I felt pretty good, a little sweaty and hot. I got a little flustered by all the bikers and people. We ran pretty even splits, around 6:00 for most miles. William stayed with us for all 3 miles, so he ran well. Dad had me run the last 800 fast. I ran the first quarter in 80, and the second in 78. It would have been 76 but there were a lot of bikers. It was a pretty good tempo run. I might be running a half marathon this fall. I hope I can keep 6:00 pace the whole time.

8 miles. MoMo tried to break 6:00 in the mile. He went out too fast then slowed down a lot. So Dad had him stop at 600.

It's my 15th birthday today! I ran a 2 mile tempo with Benjamin pacing. I was chasing William and MoMo. William got a 1:15 headstart and MoMo got a 1:45 headstart. The goal was to run 78's for the first mile then see what I could do for the last mile. We were right on pace through one mile, right around 5:12. I felt good, the pace felt pretty fast but not super hard. I slowed down a bit for the next 800, 79, then 78. I think we caught MoMo at 2000. He was having a hard time. I can't remember the split from 2400 to 2800, but with 400 to go I think I had 9:08. I had a good kick, 74 for the last 400. My time was 10:22. 14 second PR! I'm really happy I could run this! My splits by mile were 5:12, 5:10. I'm running the 3000 in Houston in a couple weeks. Hopefully in better conditions and a lower altitude I can crack 9:40.

Easy run. Dad and Benjamin were racing this morning, so we ran without them. First I ran 2 miles with Leigha in the stroller, JoJo, William, and Stevie. Then 4 more with JoJo, William, and MoMo. Then I added 2 more miles with JoJo. Benjamin had a great race. He ran 1:05:19, 6th place in the Deseret News Half Marathon. Dad ran around 34 minutes in the 10K.

I had a pretty tough run today. First I ran a 2 mile tempo pacing William. He ran 11:46. He split 5:56, 5:50. Then I ran my own workout. 6x400 at around 66 with a 400 meter recovery. Chad ran about 5 to 10 seconds slower than me. I ran 65, 67, 65, 64, 69, 62. On the first interval I felt good. On the second interval I was a little tired from the 65 so I ran a bit slower. After I ran 64 I was really tired and could only manage 69 for the next interval, Dad told me to run 800 for the next rest. I was more rested for the last interval. I ran 30, 32 by 200. It was a good workout. My legs are really worn out, but in a good way.

8 miles with a mile pickup and 3 fast quarters with William, Dad, and JoJo. We ran the quarters in about 94. William and JoJo were struggling. I ran the mile pickup by myself. Dad told me to run 5:00. I split it 74,76,75,74. It was hard but not all out. We ran up the Canyon to get the car. We thought Mom had driven it up there but she hadn't. So there was no car. Benjamin picked us up luckily.

8 miles with a mile pickup at 5:00. I ran the fast mile with Benjamin. My legs were tired so I fell back a little from him in the 3rd quarter but kicked and caught him in the last 400. We ran 4:57. Today we drove to Denver. JoJo, me, William, Stevie, and MoMo are running in the AAU Junior Olympic Nationals next week in Houston. So we are traveling there right now.
