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 was in San Diego all this week. I ran along the bay with dad today. We ran 14 400's with a 200 jog in between. My times were about 1.25-1.38 throughout the whole run. My fastest one was a 1.23. I was dying bad after the first 3 400's. It was good to run though.

Finally got back to XC practice. I ran 5 miles I didn't really run with anyone but I was behind Zac and Ruth the whole time. Run time: 37.10

 

Ran again at 3 to get use to the heat with some of the cross country team. It wasn't way hot but still sucky. We did the D.I. loop and I extended it to finish at my house. It was probably about a 2.4 mile run.

We ran Fire Station Hills today at XC practice. I ran one more than I did last week, so I ran 6 today. I ran hard on each hill and felt really sick on the run back to the school. I think the total run milage was about 3.4 miles, but I don't know for sure.

hill 1:  51. 83

2: 51.96

3: 52.0

4: 50.54

5: 47.73

6: 45.65

 

Another heat run today, same D.I. loop. We got our uniforms today so that was cool. During the run I ran behind Ruth and in front of  Fre. It was really hot today! 2.3 miles: 16.40

I missed this mornings run because I was feeling sick probably from some bad mexican food and lack of sleep. For the afternoon run at 3:00 I ran down to the high school which was about a mile run. As a group we ran to the Wells Fargo bank, and back which was about 2.3 mile run, I took it real easy. After that run I ran back home, and it was still freakin hot!

I woke up at about 7:10 and got up and drank some water, and went back to bed until 7:45. I ran down to the high school from my house which is about 1.1 miles. The XC workout was the Sunrise/Foremaster run, as I like to call it. I started out with Wood, RJ, and Baker, and they all had a lot of ground on me after 1 1/2 miles. Wood kept on going to do the Chuck-a-Rama run. I caught Baker at the top of the sunrise hill, he was dying. I was behind RJ by about 30 seconds for a long while. I caught up to and passed RJ with about a mile to go. I finished pretty strong considering the heat! It was a really good "rebound" run from my last race. It was one of my best runs of the summer.

7.2 miles:  53.15=7.23/mile

 

Afternoon Practice- I ran down to the high school from my house again, I count this mile in my overall distances because I usually run it pretty fast. For the "2  1/2 mile middle school run" I ran with coach pretty much the whole time. He taught me how to correct my form, so I can keep working on it. I was getting dehydrated by the minute during this run, but still ran a decent relaxed run. I walked half of the mile home and ran the last. Distance for this run: 1 mile down to school + 2  1/2 run + half mile run home= 4 miles.

I ran down to the high school again to see how my legs were feeling, they were tired. I lead the stretches because I was the most veteran runner there, it was pretty cool. We ran to the Sunrise hill and ran 4 of those hills. Than I ran home from the hills, and I was way, way tired.

Hill 1:  1.58, Hill 2:  1.51, Hill 3:  1.48, Hill 4:  1.44             Total Distance about 4.5 miles.

 

Afternoon Run-  Ran down to high school, stretched and warmed up. As a team we ran to Artic Circle and back, on the way back I stopped at the bank and got a drink. I was dehydrated again. I walked most of the way home, but ran about .3 back to my house.

Total Distance was about 4.1 miles.

The heat really got to me today, hard! I ran from my house to the school and I was already feeling that today was going to suck. For our 800 meter warm-up I was already dying! Than we went out to do the Chuck-a-Rama run and I started out decent, but as I kept running the worse and more sick I felt. I was having stomach problems too and that wasn't helping at all. I cut the run short by running to my house instead of back to the school, but still got about 4.1 miles in. 

I am excited to do the Wasatch Rendevous race though, if I am still on varsity by then.

Ran a 1 1/2 mile warm up to Hearts and back. Then we ran 4 800 grass loops, I felt really sick. It was probably because I had Jack in the Box today (not going to happen again). After the 8's I ran a 1 1/2 cool down.

Early Morning practice- Ran real easy, but was feeling tired from other days. Ran AC 3 miler.

Afternon Practice- Ran easy again, it was really humid! We were all supposed to run the 4 miler up Green Springs but a lot of people stopped at the Club house. I was going to, then I saw Zac going on so I went with him to run the 4.

I was feeling real tired from staying up real late, and running a lot of miles during the week. I felt like I ran pretty well though. I could have ran a lot faster, I need to start picking it up near the end of races more. I know what I am capable of I just haven't done what I need to do yet.

 

A lot of people(JV) did real well today and I was way happy for them. Some of the kids on our team were talking about taking some varsity runners off Varsity. That's not cool! I want those kids to know its not about beating your teammates. It's about running your own race and helping your team win.

Ran the Arctic Circle run this morning from my house. 3 miler.

After School practice- Baker told me that we were running a 6 miler after school but that wasn't the case. We ran 5 800's instead, I ran pretty well I guess. Before the 3rd one I didn't cool down at all and paid the price in my time. Then I ran a 1 1/2 mile cool down with Ellsworth.

1st 800: 2.43,  2nd 800: 2.48,  3rd 800: 3.01,  4th 800: 2.56,  5th 800: 2.49

Morning Practice- I started running at about 6:07 this morning. I ran from my house and did the Arctic Circle run. I like running by myself in the morning in the dark, I stay more relaxed and think about a lot of things.

 

Afternoon Practice- I thought we were going to do Anarobic Threshold but once I again things changed. We just did an easy run out to the church in Washington. I ran with Jeff most of the way and the last mile I pushed a little harder. I think I have gotten to the point in the season where I feel in shape, but still need to build on it and get a lot faster.

Easy 5 miler mall run today. I ran by Zac, Monty, Kimzey, Baker, and Ruth most of the time. I stopped by Millcreek to get water from Holt. I was dying right before I got to the water, so the water was very nice. I was starting to feel sick near the end of the run, but it was an easy day so its all good.

3 miles this morning.

hot miles after school.

Personal Philosphy- 3 or 4 miles is good enough the day before a race, so I'm not so tired.

I felt weird during the race, I think the elevation jacked me up. I did alright today, but I need to work on actually racing in these meets instead of just running meets. I need to pick people off! It's a work in progress right now. I'm going to grow out my beard for now on. I need it for another movie and it seems that I run better with it, like at Wasatch Back.

Coach gave an inspirational talk to all the boys. It was fantastic! After the speech Monty took off and I followed. I ran behind and by Monty until Foremaster. Foremaster kicked my butt! I couldn't run very far on it because my calves were tightning like crazy.  After this I had a water break at the car wash, and ran it in back to the school. I think I started out too fast with Monty.

Ran to the high school this morning then did the usual Arctic Circle. Total for me was 4 miles.

 

Afternoon Practice- Ran 7 hills today! I was really tired running out there and my first couple of skills were really slow. I had no motor while running the hills. Baker ran by me or near me for the last couple so I ran a lot faster. On the run back to the school I was dying from heat and tiredness! I guess this whole afternoon run was a total of 7.32 miles.

Hill 1- 2.36,  Hill 2- 2.28, Hill 3- 2.39,  Hill 4- 2.28,  Hill 5- 2.14,  Hill 6- 2.10, Hill 7- 2.04.
