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.

My legs were wiped out this morning... I decided to just try and do another recovery run and get through the workout, mile 5 I tryed a marathon pace mile and it about killed me (7:14) so then I slowed back down to recovery pace.. Average pace was 8:39 and my heart rate was 134 total time was 1:01:09. I think the extra mileage last week kind of took its tool on me, but I will continue the same mileage for this week but try and take it easy. I have a 10K coming up next Tuesday on the 24th, so I don't know how well I will do but I will do my best!

No strength training today as I had to meet with a client at 8:00am this morning, so I was up at 4:30am to get my run done, I will try and get that done later tonight.

Asic 2120.

My legs have been dead so far this week, I know it is from the increased mileage of the previous week, but man I am really feeling it. I took it easy today treated it like another recovery run keeping my heart rate down and not pushing it to hard. My average heart rate  was 134 and my average pace was 8:50 total time was 1:10:47.  I am hoping after this week my legs will start responding, no strength training today as my legs are feeling pretty tired and work is calling, so no time. I hope to do Harry's hill tomorrow and get some good hills in and get that heart rate up...

I did the Harry's hill loop today, I did not set any PR's on this route legs are still really tired and I didn't want to push it. I have a little bit of pain in my left shin right when I start my forst step to run and iut bothered me on the way back down Harry's hill, once I get going it feels alright, I hope it is not something serious will watch very closely...My average pace was recovery pace at 8:54 and the heart arte was averaged out at 138, total time was 1:12:42. My heart rate maxed out going up Harry's hill at 155 it is usually maxing out at 165 when I am pushing it hard but I didn't have it in the legs this beautiful morning, so hense the lower rate... I think tomorrow I might do a 5 miler and give my legs a break, but I will see what tomorrow brings, no strength training again today maybe a little tomorrow...

I really took it easy today. just a nice recovery run and my goal was to keep my heart rate down under 130 and not look at the pace today. I am trying to get my legs back but it has been a chore, I am also trying to make sure I Carb up after the run to recharge my batteries so to speak. My average pace was 9:28 and my heart rate average was 128 total time was 1:06:09. My left calf was still giving me a little trouble, on the inside front of my legs around the calf,  but I was able to finish the run and it didn't seem to hinder me to bad.  I hope I have my legs back before the Speedy Spaniard 10K on Tuesday, they feel like heavy concrete bricks right now.

See ya tomorrow

I did a nice recovery run today, trying to get my legs back from the abyss, they feel like heavy bricks. My average pace was 8:35 and my heart rate average was 135, I am hoping that my legs will get thier sponk back and I can get the strength back as soon as possible... Not much else to say except see ya tomorrow and bring on that long run.

long run Saturdays are soooooooooooo much fun, I took the pace very easy this morning my legs are still not back and I don't want to chance an injury. I ran the first 8 miles on my own and averaged about an 8:40 pace and then I hooked up with my Brother Curtis and we ran about 5 miles together at a slower pace, which was just fine with me. For the most part I felt pretty good I kind of lost it alittle towards the end but I think that was mostly due to the heat, it was one hot morning. Total time was 2:37:12 and my average pace was 9:17 and my heart rate was averaged at 133, not a real fast pace but that was not my intention, I am trying to increase my arobic base and I feel my pace is going to be there for SGM. In all my races I have averaged a 7:15 to 7:30 pace and I haven't done alot of speed work, so this incouraging. I will get another chance to test my fitness on Tuesday with the Speedy Spaniard 10K so hopfully this trend will continue.
