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.

Riverbottoms loop as usual, I felt decent at times today and then not so good  at times... My pace was about like last week slower than normal. Average was 9:01 with a total time of 1:58:29, I really crashed hard on mile 13 so I decided to stop for the day... It was a warmer day for sure.

See you Monday.

I just tired to loosen the old legs up, they were pretty stiff from Planting all the flowers in my yard... 40 plus flats adds up to a lot of squats and bending over and just wrecked my legs, I'm getting to old I guess to do all that in one day. Its wreckes me every year.

 

See you Saturday

I started out feeling pretty decent but then at mile 9 I started to crash supper hard and I just tired to do my best... Legs were still pretty trashed from Tuesday so I kind of expected it. My average pace was slow Mo at 9:18 with a total time of 2:11:21. I had way to many VPB today, I forgot to turn my watch of for one of them so it mess with my time a bit. Oh well... I am hoping for a better week next week.

See you Monday.

I just felt awful... I feel as though I'm getting weaker and slower. Oh well. To top it all off I dropped my fanny pack at the top of my street for a mile and when I came back it was gone. Crazy! Bastards. It was a great end to a tough day.

See you Monday.

Out to Mini Gu Corner, legs were horrible again, Super weak and pace was so off. I guess the short turnaround in recvoery could have been the problem but I felt just rotten. It was a beautiful morning though. My average pace was slow at 9:45 with a total time of 59:48, I finished with some lower body weights. probably not the smartest thing to do after dieing on a run. :)

See you tomorrow.

Crashed hard on the lasy 4 or so miles, Legs just really hurt and were super tired. Knda Disappointing where I had a day off yesterday, I thought the old legs would be ready yo go. NOT! I'm not so sure I can finishe a marathon at this point. If I don't start getting stronger then I might have to rethink running SG this year. Damn covid has just wrecked me. Some days I feel like I'm getting back to normal and then I'll have a day like today. Ouch! My average pace was 9:14 with a total time of 2:37:22.

See you tomorrow.
