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 ran the Payson park loop after work and it was good enough to run in shorts, I felt pretty good, I'm still fighting this darn cold and my cough but it seems to be getting better, the air quality doesn't help. My average pace was 8:53 with a total time of 55:25, it was a good start to the week, I would have ran this morning but I had to take my mom to the doctor so it kinda screwed up my plans. But all is good.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past Mini GU corner and then back to the house, I ran after work today again as I slept right through my alarm this morning, I don't know what happened there but I must be getting old! I felt okay but the last mile was a little labored, but all in all it was a good run and I'm glad that I was able to fit it in today. Two days in a row baby, I'm on a roll, my average pace was 8:46 with a total time of 53:09, I was able to run in shorts again so that was nice. That is one good thing about the afternoon runs is sometimes it a lot warmer.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to mini gu corner and then back to the house via canal road after work... I felt okay but not great. Average pace was 8:56 with a total time of 54:15, lighter day tomorrow, maybe. I might just go the full amount. I'll see how I'm feeling.

See ya tomorrow.

I got off work early today and decided to run the Payson Park Loop and extend down to the park, I felt good lung wise but my poor legs were shot from the get go, very tired with no zip. I'm okay with that as today was about covering the distance and not speed. My average pace was 9:12 with a total time of 1:06:04, on a good day I would run this route in under 60 minutes but I need to build up to that and I know I'll get there. Very happy with this week so far and tomorrow will be another easy run and just get in 6 miles minimum maybe more, it will depend on how my legs feel.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to Mini GU Corner and then back to the house via canal road, I felt a little choppy on the way out but then on the way back I started to get into a pretty good rhythm... As I got back to the house I was feeling pretty good so I tacked on another mile and it was my fastest mile of the day, I felt like I could have gone more but I didn't want to over do it as I have ran 30 plus miles this week. So a good end to the week, my average pace was 8:57 with a total time of 1:03:38. Not real fast but I know as I increase my mileage the pace will start to come down, and as I lose the weight hopefully that will help as well. My weight before I left running was 174 pounds so I have lost 6 pounds over the last 3 weeks so that's good.

See ya Monday
