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.

Started at the Dixie Center and headed into the Springs. Dave and I ran with the boys and Jason with the girls. I had to stop on two different occasions to loosen my shoes, if I don't my calves and shins hurt. Mixed in mainly with Coleman and Porter. Once we flipped for the negative split I had a hard time moving with the boys. My legs felt so heavy, from what I'm not sure. So then I stopped and stretched and finished with the girls. Extended with Brinley and Brooke. 10.1 miles

AM- Hill Circuit with the crew. Ran the first one with Macy. She was really struggling to keep it together but ran well on the actual up and down hills. Then ran with Kennis, Boston, Elder Lunt, and Holt on the 2nd uphill. Then tried chasing the boys on the down. Ran back to the school. Seems like a lot of kids are tired and others are running really well right now. Ran into some past PV runners in Haley and Megan Frodsham. 6.32 miles

AM- Was looking forward to running with the girls this morning but I saw Holt and Jason were already planning on running with them. I am surprised Jason is running with the girls more. I did my best to stay up with the boys but my body takes 2 miles to warm up for their speed. Once we started the uphill towards the Dixie Rock I slowed down a bit. Luckily Coleman and Parker were struggling too. I ran with them until it was time to flip. Then I ditched them for Porter, Grant, Gaige, and Carson once we started the power run. My legs struggled to respond and I was verbally yelling at my legs. My legs usually don't feel so weak. I was able to grit it out and hit some strides. Added a couple of minutes to get up to 75+. 9.33 miles 

PM- Sandstone grass running with the boys. 2.52 miles

60 minutes mainly with boys. Once it came to the intervals I felt slow (not a good grass runner) so I mixed in for a couple of minutes at a time. I ran with the back of the pack boys and also ran with Laney, Macy, Brecken, and Amelia. Kids looked strong! 7.01 miles

AM- Turkey Farm with the boys.....kind of. My leg calves were not having the hill. I had to stop and relace my shoes for a looser fit. I tried passing up the girls to get back to the boys but it was a slow process. I did better once the uphill diminished some. I knew I probably just catch the boys once they flipped. Did some easy t, tempo, and threshold with Parker, Porter, Grant, Kyler, and Coleman. It ended up working out despite my early struggles. 9.39 miles 

PM- Monday afternoon mess around. 2.41 miles

Slept in to be with Marieta and Ava. Then went to an ultrasound. I might have to do more days like this so my girls know I'm there for them. 
 

Afternoon in the heat. It was a grind today and we lost some kids mentally and physically. Proud of the ones that were strong and persevered. We did 2 sets of 4x2 minute intervals with 1 minute recovery in between. All at cv pace. I mixed in with top girls and the boys that run at a similar pace. It was hot but we endured it well. I'm glad Holt talked to and pulled Kate because she was struggling towards the end. I'm proud of the efforts today. Cool. 6.21 miles

AM- Spent too long on the toilet so I got to practice a minute late. Parked down the road and jumped in with the boys. Chilled in the back with Parker, Porter, and Coleman. My quads felt hammered heading out. Once we flipped at 30 we added some more kids like Ben, Tyler, and Gary. Our power run was solid. I helped push the pace and my legs weren't feeling it with 2 minutes to go. I endured and was slow on the striders. Sad to see Oak Grove burning up. 8.8 miles

PM- Gave a talk on anxiety. Not sure if I did a good job. Then got out for the normal Monday afternoon chill 20. 2.29 miles
