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 out towards Payson but stopped a little short, I was having stomach issues so I had to find a place for a VPB, after that I headed back to the house because I had to be home to take Ethan to Cross Country. After dropping him off I came home and ran 2 more miles out past the stake center and then back to the house all via canal road, my calf was about the same as Saturday, it was sore for the first 2 miles or so and then it was fine after that. it was still there but it didn't hinder me any and my pace seemed to quicken after it was loosened up... My pace was slower than normal at 8:53 with a total time of 1:04:03, some of the reason why I was slower was my legs were just way tired from Saturday but after I got going for a little bit they seemed to get better as the run went on, after the run I did my upper body weight training and then finished up with some push-ups. My abdominal strain seems to be getting better I will wait to do any crunches until next week, I want to make sure its completely healed before I start doing that again.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to Mini GU and then back to the house via canal road, my calf was pretty stiff going out but then on the way back it started to finally loosen up and when I got back to the house I tacked on another mile. I guess not having a day off in between each run takes it longer to get warmed up, I might take tomorrow off but I will have to see how its doing and then decide. My average pace was a little better this morning at 8:42 with a total time of 1:01:36, after the run I did my lower body weight training with just the usual.

See ya tomorrow.

Scheduled day off after having my calf worked on last night, Joel my PT and My brother-in-law, said that it wasn't as tight as before so that is a good sign. He worked on it pretty good so suggested that I take a day off of running so I did.

See ya tomorrow.

I was suppose to run Payson Canyon down this morning but I was really concerned that my calf wouldn't be able to handle it so I opted for running up Loafer canyon via Mount Loafer school. I ran 3 miles up and then 3 miles down, my calf felt pretty good going up but it was a little more noticable on the way down but still runnable,  I don't know how it would have handled the 8 miles all down if I had run Payson canyon. I probably would have had to run it a lot slower which is probably all right, so I will give Payson canyon a try next week if the gang runs it. I had 3 MP miles on the way down and they were,  7:45, 7:32, 7:27, my average pace was 8:31 with a total time of 1:01:09. So even though I didn't get the full affect of Payson Canyon at least I did get in a good workout, I finished up with my Lower body weight training. I will be heading down to Huntington Beach with my wife for a few days, we are leaving the kids home and getting some down time, hopefully they won't burn the house down! Haha!

See ya tomorrow.
