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 am going to rest for one more day and then tomorrow I will probably go and try a run and see how things are going. I have another Dr's appointment tomorrow so if I am in pain he can deal with it and hopefully make it better, or make it hurt worse;-)! I might do a little on the elliptical tonight and then do some stretching, I'm suppose to cancel my rooms today to get the full refund on them but I think I will just go ahead and go and then if I can run it  then I will run it and if I don't feel like it then I won't.

 

PM- I went and did 10 minutes on the elliptical and then ran 10 minutes on the treadmill and alternated like that until I hit 60 minutes. Groin and thigh felt surprisingly good, I didn't push the pace on the treadmill but the pace on the elliptical was between 95 and 100 RPM so pretty up-beat. I will see how things feel in the morning and then go from there, but if I can do this to train and then do a couple more long runs between now and the marathon, then who knows!

See ya tomorrow.

Well I went and ran out towards Mini GU corner but stopped about a mile short and then headed back to my house, my pace was very easy, on the way back  I ran into Michelle and we talked for a bit, she's just amazing! there is NO give up in her at all! She inspires me to keep pushing forward and to not give up.

When I reached my house I tacked on another mile and then headed downstairs and did 22 minutes on the elliptical, groin and hip are feeling pretty good but I am seeing Dr. Brady this morning so I think he will bring back the pain, if you hear any screaming today don't worry its just me;-)!

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out towards Payson this morning as apposed to mailbox route which is up hill and then down hill, The doc said to stay away from hills for a few more days so I did. Pace was very slow and laboring as the legs were pretty beat up from the visit to Dr. Brady yesterday, I think my average pace was around 9:15 so very slow. After I returned home I finished up with 20 minutes on the elliptical and some stretching, total time for the run was 47:29 and my HR average was 135, like I said nice and easy.;-) Everything felt fine other than my legs are just sluggish and out of rhythm but hopefully that will come back soon... Thats about it , kind of boring I know but its all I've got right now;-)

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out towards Mini GU corner but did the usual stop about a mile short, groin and hip were hurting but I was able to finish the run. I guess you can call it that, I was going extremely slow my average pace was 9:20 and my HR average was 131, total time was 46:53. After returning home I went and did 25 minutes on the elliptical and the groin and hip didn't seem to bother me to much. I didn't have any resistance but keep the RPM in the 95 to 100 range, I did have the resistance on 3 for about 2 minutes but nothing to hard. I thought I was turning the corner on this darn thing but I have taken a few steps back today, I will have to see how it feels in the morning and then go from there, bummer;-(

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to Mini Gu Corner and then realized it was the Spanish Fork Half this morning so I turned and headed back towards Harry's hill, but before I went up it I did a loop around Pretty Little Hill and then waited for the leaders to come by. It looked like Carl Hansen was out in front and Tyler was pacing him and they were flying, I hope that Carl was able to win it he was sure kicking some butt. After watching for a minute I ran into my friend Jeff and we ran up over Harry's and then down to the stake center and then home, it was nice to run with him and catch up. My legs by the end were pretty much toast and hurting pretty bad, I stretched and then took Ethan to Flag football practice and then came home and did 15 minutes on the elliptical and then 15 minutes on the treadmill, and then another 15 minutes on the elliptical... I ran 1.70 miles in the 15 minutes on the treadmill and then I had to go and pick up Ethan, and then after that I went down and ran another 15 minutes on the treadmill to finish up. So total miles on the treadmill were 3.25 and then I ran the 10.25 miles out on the road and then the 30 minutes on the elliptical. My legs felt so much better on the treadmill and the elliptical I was pushing it the whole 30 minutes on each, so a pretty good workout and I'm pooped. Hip and groin were a bother but once I got on the elliptical  they seemed to do better, I don't know maybe I can run half of SG out on the road and then finish up on a treadmill, I don't think so Clay!!!

Average pace for the outside miles was 9:00, HR average was 145, total time was 1:32:12 and then another hours worth of the treadmill and elliptical.

See ya Monday.
