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.

I ran the Payson Park loop after work, I included the rollers but I wasn't feeling real great just real choppy, I felt a lot better towards the end than I did at the first, I must have forgot to turn off my watch when I got done cuz it was still on after I stretched so I have no numbers on that. Judging by the miles pace it was around 8:45 average or so, I must have zoned out when I finished or I just didn't pueh the stop botton hard enough. After the run I did my upper body weight training and then finished up with some push-ups.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to Mini Gu and then back to the house via canal road, didn't feel real great going out but a little better on the way home. My pace was slower at 8:46 with a total time of 53:37, another good start to the week.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran in the morning today and then plan was to run Harry's Hill, I ran out past the Stake center and then to the base of Harry's and then headed up. I felt pretty good going up and I was about 10 seconds faster than last week, I then hit the downhill and the wheels came off so to speak. I felt like I just hit the wall and it was a death march the rest of the way home, I really don't know what happened, I felt good on the first half and thought this would be one of my better runs but it never happened! Oh well, at least I was able to get her done. My average pace 8:48 with a total time of 56:02, just a real weird run can't explain it at all!

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to GU this morning and then back towards the house, did a mile repeat between Mini GU and the stake center and then back to the house, I was feeling pretty good so I tacked on another couple miles out to the old barn and back via canal road. My pace was good at times and then not so good, but my average for the run was 8:35 with a total time of 1:35:12. I've still been having problems with my abdomen, in fact its really never gone away. It is slightly better than it has been but it is still hanging around, it seems to affect me more on quicker paces and longer runs so it should be an eventful St. George Half Marathon next Saturday. It was a pretty solid week again this week, I didn't run yesterday because my body just kind of said no and I had a pretty good run today so it was good that I listened to my body for a change. Not sure what my runs will consist of next week, it will depend on how I am feeling, probably normal runs on Monday and Tuesday and then do a little taper from there to the race. I ran into my brother and his son Bryan they were out getting there run done too!

See ya Monday
