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.

Well, it looks as if I am done with running for a bit... I have a stress fracture in my lower tibia so that they say is that. Pretty bummed and really having a hard time accepting it but theres not much else I can do. I did get the results back from the blood work and I was way low on my Vitamin D and B which can explain the Stress fracture with low Vitamin D, I'm taking steps to correct both of those.  I don't know where to go from here... Not sure if I am going to continue to try and Boston Qualify or not and maybe just run Half's at this point. probably not a good time to really think about it because I'm pretty pissed off and I don't want to make any bad decisions based on my bad attitude. I can start the elliptical in about a week but not sure if I really want to at this point, but either way there will be No running for 6 weeks, period! I probably won't be blogging much because theres nothing really to blog about!

Have a good one.

Its been about a month since I have ran and I was given the okay to try a run this week, so after work I headed out past the Stake center and then back to the house. My leg felt good, no pain in the area that has been giving me problems, so that's a good sign. After the run I did 20 minutes on the elliptical and everything felt fine there too, I don't know if I will run tomorrow or not, I will have to continue to go slow and take it easy. Average pace for the run was tolerable at 8:36 with a total time of 29:44. it was so good to get out today. I have been going crazy!

I ran out to the old barn on canal road, 2 miles round trip, then after getting back home I jumped on the elliptical for 30 minutes. I did some upper body weight training and then some push-ups to finish up, average pace on the run was way slow at 9:16 with a total time of 18:33.

Morning run today and I ran out to the base of Harry's Hill and then back to the house, I felt pretty good this morning too, I took yesterday off as not to over do it. My average pace was 8:40 with a total time of 39:58, I finished up with 15 minutes on the elliptical, it was a nice workout and I'm glad I was able to do it.

See ya Later.

Went out and ran 4 miles after Ethan's cross country meet. I ran out past the stake Center and then back to the house, my leg is starting hurt again so I'm a little disappointed in that... I will try running again on Monday and then see how it handles it, I might need to take more time off. Average pace was slow at 9:03 with a total time of 37:01.

Later.
