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 havent' been able to run in a few3 days so i decided to get out for at least a few miles, I ran out past mini GU and then back to the house, I didn't have a watch so I don't know pace or time. I felt pretty good going out but not so good on the way back, but it was a nice day and the sun was out so that was a good thing! Abdominal was still tender so that was a concern, don't really know whats goin on there but I have been fighting it for about 5 months now... I can still run which is a good thing but it hinders my turn over some, oh well I have to learn to take the good with the bad.

 

See ya monday

I ran the Payson Park Loop after work today and extended down to the park, it was pretty nice again and I ran in shorts so that is always a good thing. I felt pretty good today for a change and my pace was pretty up beat I had 3 miles that were sub 8:15 miles so that was fun, I didn't feel to labored on them either. Abdominal is a little tender but not bad, average pace was 8:21 with a total time 1:00:00 even, so it was a good day for a change and I'll take it!

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past Mini GU via canal road, I didn't feel real great on my way out but on  the way back I was able to get into a pretty good rhythm which made me feel a little better about the run. I had a few snow flakes along the way but all in all it was a pretty good day. My average pace was 8:42 with a total time of 53:06, abdominal was about the same but no worse for wear, I do have some tightness in my left hip after a few miles so I'll need to watch that.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past Mini GU corner and half way up Power house road and then back to the house, felt pretty good going out but pretty terrible on the way back, it felt like a death march the last 3 miles. My pace was 8:46 with a total time of 1:02:52, I ran into my brother and his son Bryan it was good to see them out and about. I need to find away to get my Mojo back, I was pretty lazy this week and I need to get back to being more consistent but not over doing it. I was glad that I got out today and it was a good way to end the week.

See ya Monday

I ran out to Payson and ran the payson park loop and extended down into the Park, I was really tender in my lower abdomin again but it was tolerable after I got loosened up. I'm beginning to wonder if Its ever going to heal or is there something else wrong, its been a frustrating injury. I was okay speed wise but I didn't feel real great during the run but then again I haven't ran for 3 days so I can't expect to much. My aveage pace was 8:36 with a total time of 1:01:48, after the run I did some upper body weight training and then finished up with some push-ups. I wish I could figure this darn thing out, It doesn't do any good to lay off the running because it doesn't seem to make it any better, so the plan is to be more consistant with the running and then see how it goes.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past Mini Gu via canal road, I felt okay going out but then on the way back I really had a hard time, my legs were so dead the last few miles were a death march! I'm glad I got out though because I need to get more consistent, my average pace was slow at 9:02 with a total time of 54:58. Abdomen was okay, better than yesterday, but the old legs were not, they were really dead.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out GU Corner and then back to the house via canal road, in the middle I did a 2 mile pick-up and those were 7:50, 7:39. Felt pretty good on each on so that was a pleasant surprise and I felt a little better today which was a good sign, I'm still fighting trying to get my Mojo back. My average pace was 8:25 with a total time of 1:07:58, next week the goal is to start doing some morning runs again and try and be more consistent. Tomorrow is my daughter Abby's Mission farewell, she heads off on Wednesday so that will be a tough couple of days for me as a Dad, I'm really proud of her and she is going to make a great missionary!!! She's all grown up and its hard to believe, time has flown by so darn fast.

See ya Monday

Morning run today and I ran out to Payson Park and back via Canal road, didn't feel real great this morning but I got her done. Last mile or two felt like the classic death march, average pace was slow at 8:53 with a total time of 1:03:44. After the run I did my upper body weight training and then finished up with some push-ups. Abby did such a great job on her farewell talk for her mission yesterday, I am so proud of her! It will be hard to send her off on Wednesday, its so much tougher sending a girl than it is a guy, I guess its tough either way you look at it.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past Mini GU and then back to the house via canal road, I don't know what the deal was today but I felt really good, a total turn around from yesterday. I just keep the pace upbeat and enjoyed the run, the weather was perfect couldn't ask for a better morning. My average pace was 8:16 with a total time of 50:20, after the run I did a couple sets of one legged leg squats. Great run! Abby leaves for her mission in the morning, we have to be at the airport at 4-am so it should be a morning full of tears.

See ya tomorrow.

We had to have Abby up at the airport at 4am so she could catch her flight to the Mexico MTC, so I really never went to sleep... I thought it wouldn't bother me to much sending her off on her mission but I just lost it!!! I have been a blubbering mess all day and I almost can't even function, I am so proud of her andI I know she will make a great missionary but it is so hard sending her off for some reason, but I know it whats she been wanting to do so go get em Sweet pea!!!

See ya tomorrow.

I got home later after work so I just ran over to the Base of Harry's Hill and then ran the pretty little hill loop and then back to the house, I felt really good again today, kinda like Tuesdays run just really fluid. I had one mile that was sub 7:50 so I counted that as a MP mile, my average pace was 8:14 with a total time of 43:25. I didn't get out yesterday because of difficulty of the day, but I am feeling much better now, if you want to know then read my post yesterday. The plan is to run tomorrow morning and I am going to work hard to do it.

See ya tomorrow

I got off work a little early and I decide to run, it was a beautiful day and so nice I just couldn't pass it up! I ran the Payson Park Loop and extended down to the park, I felt okay but not as good as yesterday and the day before that but today was just about getting some mileage in and not worrying about the pace so much... My average pace was 8:35 with a total time of 1:01:34, after the run I did my upper body weight training and then finished up with some push-ups. I was a little lazy this morning and slept in, I've been having that problem as of late and I really need to try and fix that!

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to Gu Corner and then back to the house via canal road, I didn't feel real great going out but I felt better on the way back in, I'm still fighting my abdominal pain but its tolerable. The pain that I'm feeling from that it's on the right side below the navel, if that's not to graphic, I've been dealing with it for about 4 months now. I feel like I had a good week of training, at least for me anyway, and I would like to keep it going now. My average pace was 8:41 with a total time of 1:10:08, I was a little slower this morning but still okay considering I had a late run yesterday afternoon. I had a nice sausage and egg breakfast after the run for my reward for a steady week of training and it hit the spot!

See ya Monday

By the time I got done with work and then over to see my mom at the hospital I had no time to run... I know I hate running in the mornings when it's dark but I have to make an effort to start doing that cause it's to hard to run after work anymore.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran after work today and I ran out past Mini GU and then back to the house, pace was pretty up beat for me and I was angry the whole run,  I just couldn't seem to clear my head. The way  was feeling had nothing to do with run I just couldn't clear my head of life's struggles, lets just say Its not fun being a Stepfather and I'll leave it at that. My average pace 8:16, man I must have been angry,  and then my total time was 50:24,  I did 2 sets of 15 one legged squats to finish up.

See ya tomorrow.

I left work at around 1 today and was on the road running by 1:30, I ran the Payson Park Loop and extended down to the Park. I felt okay but not great, better after a few miles and I was able to loosen up but the last mile or so I felt pertty tired. I guess thats what happens when you take a few days off, I seem to feel better when I ran everyday, you think I would get the message. My average pace was 8:27 with a total time of 1:00:39, I did some stretching after to finish up.

See ya tomorrow.
