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 came home from work and finished the running around with everything and then I found time to run 3 miles out towards the stake Center, total time for the run was 27:51 and average pace was 9:09 and my HR was hanging around 150. My hip was a little bit of a bother but I was able to get through the run, after I finished the run I headed downstairs and jumped on the elliptical for 20 minutes and that was it for today... I hope to get out tomorrow but I will have to wait and see how I feel in the morning and then go from there;-) I felt pretty darn good on the run except for the hip, if I can just get that to heal I will be good to go.

See ya tomorrow.

Warmed up on the elliptical for 10 minutes and then did the program 6 on there and it is a tough one. It takes you from 1 on the resistance level all the way up to 10 which is the max it will go and then you wind back down and it takes 30 minutes to go through the whole program. After that I continued for another 10 minutes with the RPM  between 95 and 100 and then I finished with a 10 minute cool and then some stretching, so 60 minutes total on the machine and I felt like it was a pretty good workout, I like running better though. My hip was to sore to run today so I opted for the elliptical, I'll have to see how tomorrow goes.

See ya tomorrow.

I actually got myself out of bed and got my workout done in the morning as opposed to after work. I did a 10 minute warm up on the elliptical and then I did the Fast Track which tops out at 7 on the resistance but you have longer intervals at that resistance and it pretty much kicked my butt! I then did 10 minutes at about 90 on the rpm and then I did a 12 minute cool down and then I finished that up with some stretching and some push-ups. My hip felt real good I felt like I could have run but I resisted, maybe I will try some miles tomorrow depending on how it is feeling, but my groin seems to be healed up nicely so that is a good thing. Its My son Ethan's B-Day today the big 12 and he will receive the priesthood on Sunday so that is extra cool;-)

See ya Tomorrow.

I ran a mid afternoon run today, 3.45 miles in 31 minutes and then I jumped on the  elliptcal for 33 minutes; 10 minutes warm-up and then I did the fast track on the program for 20 minutes and it kicked my butt!!! I finished with some stretching and some push-ups. My hip did okay running, it hurt a little but it was tolerable, it felt better once I finished the elliptical.

See ya tomorrow.

My daughter had a basketball game early this morning at 8 o'clock so I had to do my workout after that. I started with a warmup on the elliptical for 10 minutes and then I did the back country program on the elliptical which is 30 minutes long and it took me as high as 7 on the resistance, longer intervals, and it was brutal! I then just kept it nice and steady for another 20 minutes with the incline at 20% for 5 minutes and then I finished up with some stretching. After the stretching I jumped on the treadmill for 1 mile at a 3% incline for 3/4 of a mile and then I cooled down for the last quarter mile. Hip was a little sore so I stayed inside on the elliptical and tried to get it loosened up, I am hopeful that by the end of the month I will see some improvement, with limited running and lots of cross training I'm hoping that it will fully heal up;-)

See ya Monday.
