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 after work today and I was able to get out just after the rain storm and it was so beautiful, I ran out past the old barn and towards Payson just along canal road. I felt okay but I am weighing 20 ponds heavier than I ever have in my life, I've always been a 160 guy for the most part but now I am tipping the scales at 180... I felt fat and slow today and I really need to make some changes in my diet, I don't know if I can do it but I started with a salad for dinner so I guess that's a move in the right direction.  I need to cut my sugar intake and that is going to be tough for me no doubt, I'll just have to start slowly and do my best.  My average pace was 8:51 with a total time of 36:17, I finished up with some lite upper body weight training and then some push-ups, it was a good way to end the day.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past the stake center and towards Mini GU via canal road, I felt pretty good considering I ran late last night but by the end of the run I was starting to feel it. My average pace was slower at 9:01 with a total time of 38:38, I did some one legged squats, 2 sets of each leg 15 reps. I finished up by working on my core, it was a good start to the day.

See ya tomorrow.

So early yesterday morning I had to head up to Tremonton to see a client and I was walking out in one of his fields and there were a lot of high weeds and I didn't realize I was walking along a ditch bank , to make a long story short my right leg found the 4 foot deep ditch and my left leg stayed were it was at... Pretty sore knee but it felt okay out running this evening so that's good, If it wasn't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all, HAHAHA. So I didn't run yesterday just out of pre-caution, I ran out past the stake center and towards Mini GU and then back to the house, I felt pretty good I just feel fat and out of shape. Average pace was 8:53 with a total time of 38:10, I finished up with some core work.

See ya tomorrow.
