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.

Bimblin and Stumblin my way through this run... Hip is comming around but the tired legs and slow pace are not... I had to work my but off to just beat the 9 Minute guy again, my average pace was 8:57 with a total time of 1:04:48 and I finished up with some upper body weight training and some push-ups.

See you tomorrow.

Loafer Canyon to the Gate with the Spanish Fork Group, I felt great on the way up but horrible on the way back down... Not sure why other than that is the way my legs have been as of late. My downhill miles are usually sub 7:45 but I couldnt break the 8 minute guy. My average pace was 9:37 with a total time of 1:19:23, I finished up with upper body weight training and some push-ups.

See you tomorrow.

My average pace was 8:34 with a total time of 1:01:10, I finished up with some upper body weight training and some push-ups.

See you tomorrow.

I went to the doctor and had some blood work done on friday and results came back  and everything ewas right where it shgould be. He did say that I am not getting enough protein so I am on Protien shakes for the forseeable future. It sure made a differnece today. I finally felt like a runner again today and I am so excited. I know I have a way to go but hopefully I am on the right track. My average pace was really easy and comfortable at 8:24 with a total time of 1:00:38, I finished up with some upper body weight training and some push-ups.

See you  tomorrow.

Loafer Canyon to the Gate and then towards the fire road. I felt good again on the way up but not very good on the way down, legs are having a hard time turning over fast. Hopefully they will do better the more I run the downhill. I had 3 MP miles at 7:58, 7:39, 7:51, I would like those to be more in the 7:30 range. My average pace was 9:28 with a total time of 1:16:59, I finished up with some lower body weight training.

See you tomorrow.

Usual Saturday route. I went out a little two fast but the pace was pretty steady throughout the run, I was a little tired towards the end but I think that was because of the heat and that I am not use to the pace. Progress! My average pace was 8:31 with a total time of 2:01:09, very pleased with the way that I felt.

See you Monday.

Harry's Hill and then over to Woodland Hills drive to Canal road and then home, I felt good on the uphill but struggled on the downhill again. I felt pretty good on the flat as well. My average pace was 8:52 with a total time of 1:03:51, I finished up with some lower body weight training.

See you tomorrow.

Mini Gu Corner and back. I felt good and the pace was upbeat, picked it up on the last mile and a bit to MP to finish up. I also did some upper weight training and some push-ups.

See you tomorrow.

Loafer Canyon and I crashed hard! I'm not sure what happen but I had nothing on the uphill and the downhill was really rough. I guess it was the short turnaround from yesterdays run,which was really good by the way, but today I hit the wall both ways. Average pace was 10:49 with a total time of 1:27:35, like I said I crashed. Here's to better days.

See you tomorrow.

I slept in and so I just went 10 Miles and I'm glad thats all I went because I really was slow and tired on the last few. My average pace was 8:51 with a total time of 1:29:52, those last few kinda felt like Thursday when I was really hurting. I guess 10 miles is better than no miles at all.

See you Monday.

Out to Payson Park and back via canal road, they have finally finished all of the contruction along this route which is good to see. I felt horrible today... I'm not sure why but it was a slow go the whole way. My average pace was 9:19 with a total time of 1:06:52, I finished up with some upper body weight training and some push-ups. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.

My average pace was 8:23 with a total time of 51:29, I finished up with some upper and lower body weight training and some push-ups.

I ran out to Payson park and back via canal road, I had a negative split on the way back which is a little uphill and mostly flat so not to bad. I had a couple of MP miles at 8:06, 8:09, my average apce waas 8:26 with a total time of 1:00:50, I finished up with some upprt body weight training and some push-ups.
