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.

I had planned on running with my niece and nephew after work but I got held up at work and then I had parent soccer meeting to attend and I never got out. I know I sound like a broken record, oh well there's always tomorrow.

See you tomorrow.

I ran the Payson Park loop but I cut out the rollers and I didn't extend to the park, it was a beautiful morning and it reminded me how great the morning runs can be if you will only give them a chance. I felt okay, better on the inward half than going out and my average pace was 8:36 with a total time of 53:37. After the run I did my upper body weight training, just real lite, one set of each exercise. Ethan has his first High school soccer game today, I can't believe the season is here already it seems like we just finished last year but here we are again.

See ya tomorrow.

Another morning run and I ran the Mini GU Corner loop via canal road, I felt pretty good on the way out but then with a couple miles to go I had a fight with some stomach issues and I lost that fight... After the VPB I really felt horrible my legs were rubbery and I slowed way down to like a 9:15 pace, I could barley move. I felt like before I left that I was coming down with something so I don't know if this is just the start or what but I feel like I have been beat with a bat. My average pace was 8:48 with a total time of 53:48, I hope I'm not getting sick...

 

See ya tomorrow.

I felt a little better this morning so I ran out past Mini Gu corner and then back to the house, I felt pretty good considering the cold that I have been fighting the last few days... My pace was upbeat at 8:16 average with a total time of 50:18, after the run I did some one legged squats, 2 sets of 15. I have the Spectrum 10K next Saturday so that should be fun, I'm not expecting to much just get some tempo miles in and get it done, its my last race of the runners series to get me into SGM. My goal is get back to being more consistent next and the weeks following, I have been way lazy the last month.

See ya Monday.

I ran after work today, I'm feeling a little better from my cold but still not great but I felt like I had to get out today. I ran 4 miles and then I meet my Nephew Jake at my house because he wanted to run a few miles, so we ran out past the old barn and then back to the house. It was pretty windy so it was a struggle at times but we kept the pace honest and just did our best. My average pace was 8:19 with a total time of 50:42, after the run I did my upper body weight training and then finished up with some push-ups. I felt pretty darn good today, still a little weak from my cold but pretty darn good.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran with my two nephews, Jake and Jeff, we ran out past the stake center and out to the "T" in the road and then back to the house. My legs are feeling pretty good right no for some reason , they seem to want to run but I have been holding them back as not to over do it, after dropping them off I ran out to the old barn on canal road and then back to the house to tack on a few more. My average pace was 8:13 with a total time of 45:28, I hope my legs stay like they are now, ready to run, I would like to have a good race on Saturday even though I've been a little lazy as of late.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran the Spectrum 10K this morning down in St George, it was a beautiful morning and conditions were perfect. I warmed up for about 10 minutes before the race and then the gun went off.

Mile 1. 6:39 Way to fast and I do this every year...

Mile 2. 7:04 this is more like it. Feeling okay.

Mile 3. 7:00 Good.

Mile 4.7:13 I was starting to have stomach issues here, I have had a cold and my legs were feeling a little rubbery, having a hard time breathing too. A little up hill on this mile.

Mile 5. 7:28 I really died here for some reason, I couldn't work through the stomach issues and my lungs just couldn't get enough air.

Mile 6 7:43 I'm really dissapointed with this mile, I was not feeling good, this mile cost me a 10K PR.

.20 7:13 Recovered a little bit here but not enough.

I feel okay with the overall race considering I was in bed on Sunday and not feeling well, I need to get more consistant with my training and re-dedicate myself.

Course PR buy about 30 Seconds. I'll take even though I died towards the end.

Average Pace was 7:11 according to my watch.

See ya monday.

I went out for a morning run and I ran out past the Stake Center and towards Mini GU, Legs felt okay at the start but after a few miles they really were hurting and non responsive... The last few miles were pretty brutal, especially the last mile, I felt like I was crawling. Average pace was slow at 8:58 with a total time of 36:31, I did some stretching after word, I don't know if I will run tomorrow or not I will have to see how I'm feeling, my calves were really sore and just hurt, that must be from the downhill portion of the race Saturday.

 

See ya Later

Nothing today as my legs and both my calves have some serious stiffness, I will run tomorrow but only what my legs will let me. I'm not sure why it is taking so long for them to recover from a 10K but it feels like I ran a marathon, kind of depressing actually.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran late morning today and I ran out past Mini GU via canal road, I felt a lot better today than Thursday it seems all the little pesky stiffness has subsided my pace on the way out was way to fast at 8:11 so I toned it down on the way back. With about 2 miles left I felt a knot in my right calf, I was able to run through it and it loosened up but I hope this doesn't hold me back any. My average pace 8:17 with a total time of 50:24, the weather was perfect too! Now its off to see if I can still swing a golf club, its been a good 8 months since I have played, thats the longest I've every gone in my life. I have just been to busy with other things, mainly kids and work but today worked out so I would have a chance so I'm going to take it!

See ya Monday

It was such a nice afternoon that I had to get out and enjoy the great weather! I was able to hit the road a little after 3-pm and I ran out past mini GU and then back to the house via canal road, I felt pretty darn good and I had NO calve issues so that was a good thing. The pace was upbeat and my average was 8:16 with a total time of 50:21, it was the first day of this tear that I felt hot and it really loosened up the old muscles. I'm really glad i got out and now its off to Ethan's JV soccer game.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran after work again today and I ran the Payson Park loop but I cut out the rollers, my legs were in a strange funk the first 3 miles and then felt better the last 3 so that was a good thing. My average pace was 8:40 with a total time of 54:09 so about 3 minutes slower than yesterday do to the slow first 3 miles, but that okay because I wanted to go slower today anyway so it worked out all right. I'm glad I got out today and the rain had stopped so it turned out to be pretty darn nice!

See ya tomorrow.

I ran after work hoping that the weather was better, I had a little bit of everything rain, hail, snow, and sunshine... I headed out to Mini Gu and I just tried to keep things steady, average pace was 8:40 with a total time of 52:30, my legs were a little trashed but other than that I seemed okay. I just wasn't real fluid with my stride today, a little choppy, but it was still good to get out.

See ya tomorrow.

HR Average 146.

I went out mid morning and I ran out past Mini Gu via canal road and what a beautiful morning it was, I felt pretty good considering I walked 18 holes of golf yesterday at Hobble Creek golf course. I carried my clubs the whole way so it was a pretty good work out, I used my watch one to track the mil.eage and its just over 5 miles. My average pace was pretty steady at 8:23 with a total time of 1:00:35, I still have some tenderness below the navel when I run but it's tolerable, I really don't know what is going on there I have been fighting it for about 5 months now. I hope it gets feeling better soon., it was a great run today and I am glad that I was able to get out.

See ya tomorrow.
