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.

First Loafer Canyon run, I didn't go all the way to the gate but almost... I should be good to go all the way to the gate next week. I took it easy on the uphill and the downhill but I seemed okay both ways. Stronger on the uphill for sure so I have some work to do on my dwonhill training. I finished up with some lower body weight training. Average pace was 9:28 with a total time of 59:48.

See you tomorrow.

Usual Saturday route. I felt pretty tired most of the run and the legs crashed again but not as bad as last Saturday, the last 3 miles I seemed to have more energy which was a nice surprise but I still have a long way to go. My average pace was 9:11 with a total time of 2:36:53.

See you Monday.

My average pace was super slow this morning at 10:01 with a total time of 1:21:17, I finished up with some upper body weight training and some push-ups.

See you tomorrow.

Out to Payson Park and back via canal road. I felt just horrible. Weak and tired and just no energy at all. My average pace was 9:24 with a total time of 1:07:37, i finished up with some upper body weights and some push-ups. I'm not sure what to do at this point. I am not improving at all really, I'm not getting stronger or quicker. Its just frustrating. Oh well. Maybe this is what old age feels like... if it is then it sucks!

See you tomorrow.

I finally felt good for a change this morning! Pace was up beat and steady and my tunrover was a lot better. My average pace was 8:28 and my total time was 1:01:01, I finished up with some upper body weights and some push-ups. I had an 8:10  and 8:15 mile pace on a few of them which is trending in the right direction. Not sure what tomorrow will be like but I will enjoy today and hope for the best.

See you tomorrow.
