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.

Slept in a little late and missed the warm up with the kids. Hit some fast intervals on the track. I focused on Laney, Brianna, Kennis, and Elle. They all did well on staying positive (at least when I was running with them). Its funny how me trying to keep these kids positive and not give into negativity has definetely helped me in my own running when I do not feel my best. 4.09 miles

I wanted to get a run in on a great adventurous Sunday. Marieta dropped me off after visiting Ava. I also have a goal to run every day for a year. I need to get back to being a runner that is a little husky. Currently I am a fatty trying to run. 1.26 miles

AM- Started with the lower minute boys until the charge up Sunrise Hill. I quickly fell behind. Then I navigated the downhill on Sunrise and down Foremaster. I closed the gap right around at Maverik where all the boys went in to the bathroom. I got tired after 5+ minutes and saw the girls running by. I joined them until 2450 when I finally saw the boys coming. Rejoined their group and ran some hills and pick ups with them. Kids look fast, I felt good. 7.85 miles 

PM- Half and half with girls. 2.37 miles

A potential storm pushed us to Sullivan Park. We got 10 minutes into our warm up when the rain starting coming down hard. Everyone (that I heard) seemed optimistic about the conditions. Unfortunately the AD found us and shut down the run. I wasn't going to pass on getting more mileage in the rain. So Jason and I headed back up the trail and enjoyed 4 more miles. Perfect weather. 6.53 miles

AM- Finally got our speed work in (since we coudn't yesterday). I learned last week that if I try to do the full minutes on the race intervals I start to fall off. Mainly because I am a fat wuss. So today I decided to hop in 2 minutes into their 4 minute intervals. This way I could really focus on pushing them into their spots and being positive. Yes I still feel like a wuss for shortening the interval but I am more efficient as a coach when I do it. I mixed in with the Carson and his crew, Laney, and Wesley. For the last 2 I ran with the varsity girls. They were fast and pushing hard together. Man do I love October running! 6.47 miles

PM- 40 with Holt and Julien. Talked about traditions and bringing things together. I felt terrible, no energy. 5.16 miles 

 

Side not I am considering signing up for Mt. Charleston because my buddy Derek is trying to convince to do it. I do need something to train for, mainly to help me lose weight.

AM- Hit some mileage with George and Justin (George's bro in law). Justin is training for the Antelope Island Half so he wanted to hit 2 10 minute tempos. We started at the Dixie Rock parking lot and ran up the road. His tempo pace was actually pretty slow at like 7:20-7:30. It was fun to pick it up just a little bit. After the tempos we connected into City Creek and crossed over the road and onto T-Bone and back to the car. Great conversations and the run went by fast. 9.3 miles

PM- Hit 3 400s with the Kennis, Brinley, and Brianna (for a couple). They did 4, I missed the first one. Then 2 fast 200s. The second 200 we went under 40 seconds, which is fast for me. Great short workout with some speed. Cooled and added 10 more minutes with Jason. 6.23 miles

AM- A little warm to shake out a poop. Then 10 miles with Logan, Jason, and Holt. I think I have a plantar wart on my foot so that is feeling pretty sore and raw. Then 2 more miles with the team. 12.79 miles 

PM- Perfect state day! Had some down time to chill at the hotel before heading over to the Regional Alethic Complex. I even took a little nap. The hype squads went all out this year! At the start line the girls started to strip down for the race revealing their “AVA” tattoos. It caught me off guard and had me tearing up a little bit. The girls got after it and ran strong with Brooklyn (4th), Adri (6th), Kate (13th), Katie (17th), and Brinley (20th). I am extremely happy for Kate! She worked through some hard things this year and came out the other side even stronger! I'm glad I could be there for her in her times of need. She was there for me when I needed some positivity. They did it! I’m super impressed with these girls taking on a new course these last 3 years and still coming out on top. I just wish I could’ve seen and filmed more of the race. It was hard to to get to different spots in time. Boys did about as good as one could hope. Trey ran an amazing race and took 4th. Boys took 4th overall continuing a streak of a top 5 finish since 08’ (my senior year). Feel overwhelmed with gratitude for this team. 1.53 miles

I did not think the excitement of yesterday could be matched for a while. Well the Halloween run brought the excitement. The kids were decked out, especially the Mario Kart ones. Some idiot tried to hit Steve Irwin (Dave) and some of the boys. Dave gave the guys car a little slap. The guy pulled into the mall parking lot and starting getting in Dave's face. I think he kicked or tripped Dave at one point? I started to make my way over just as the guy was threatening to call the cops. Dave said "Go for it! I'll be at Arctic Circle!" Which is a very classy line. Then on the return trip the boys helped push start a heavy man on a motorcycle. It took a couple of attempts and some steep downhill to get him going. 2.86 miles

Couldn't pass up on the abandoned golf course while in Vegas. I tried not to look at my watch until a mile split. I found that Aaron Metler consistency doing 3 8:22 miles in a row. Then I picked things up from there with a 7:54, 7:58, 7:38, and 7:26. It was nice just running and trying not to focus on a watch but listen to my body. Added some slower miles while my body broke down. Yesterday I had a hard time seeing things and today my brain is pounding. I can't sneeze or lean forward without my brain blowing up. 10.01 miles
