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. And make sure to share it with your friends.

Track work with the kids. Most of the kids were running 400s (first 200 race pace, second 200 goal race pace). I did my best to help groups hit that second 200 faster. 

1. 200 with Adri (probably around 37 seconds)

2. 200 with Brooklyn and Brinley (probably around 40 seconds)

3. 200 with Brooklyn and Brinley (38 seconds)

4. 300 with Alli (49 seconds)

5. 200 with Parker, Carson, and Grant (probably around 37-38 seconds)

6. 200 with Brooklyn and Brinley (38 seconds)

7. 200 with Pyper, Jenna, and Kennis (38 seconds)

8. 200 with Brooklyn and Brinley (38 seconds)

9. 200 with Pyper, Jenna, and Kennis (37 seconds)

 

I decided to only do the 200s so I could focus on helping them hit the times better. Had I done the 400s I probably would have been too worn out in my old age. Cool with the girls. 7.21 miles

PM: Won the root beer mile. I knew my years of soda drinking would pay off. Holt, Quinn, Talmage, and Gage made me nervous for the first couple of laps. Glad we can raise money for Boston Gentry! 1.93 miles

AM- Ran all the paved sections on an abandoned golf course in Vegas. Loved the rolling hills. 9.20 miles

Warm, tempo on the track, then cool with the younger boys. Hit a 400 with Jason, 400 with Scottie, 400 with Allison and Sadie, 400 with Maddy. Then Beattie asked for a sub to run with Adri. I ran 6:35-6:40 pace with Alli for about 10 minutes. Then I ran with Scottie for the last couple of minutes of his tempo. 7.25 miles

Ran to the Cove Wash TH from that road down below. Then jogged around waiting for the team. Ran with the girls and kept them from making too many wrong turns. I felt pretty good. I was strong on the uphills (mainly because I didn't want to look like a wuss). Saw Logan and the D-Hells crew. I wonder if Dave sends out little invites or if Logan is tracking Dave's whereabouts. Added some minutes with Pyper, Jenna, and Maddy. Ran back down to my car. 10.27 miles

 

Immediately after running I went biking with my Dad, Jake, and Jared. We cruised down to Rockville from the Gooseberry Mesa TH. Good exercise day.

Wussed out this morning because of some stomach issues. I really wish I would've gotten out and got moving. I felt sluggish and tired all day. Then right after school I had to go to a thing with Marieta. I got out later than I wanted. I still got some mileage but wish I could've got more. Bloomington Ridge. 4.76 miles
