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.

Another nice easy recovery  run this beautiful morning, alittle cool but nice... I think it might take some time to get my legs back underneath me, I will probably have to go 4 miles and then half that every other day until I get my legs back. After 4 miles I was running on empty this morning, but I'm not complaining I am just taking it one day at a time... Total time this morning was; 36:58 with an average pace of 9:13, my heart rate is still alittle high at a 147 average, I am hoping for that to slowly come down to where it was before my injury which should be around 130 to 135 for the pace that I am doing... Not much else to say except I will see ya tomorrow.

I ran a Lybi 5k this morning, real easy pace and just tryed to enjoy the sites and sounds of Salem, Utah... Total time was 31:44, with an average pace of 9:17, my haert rate average was 143 still alittle high but it seems to be coming down. I had a head wind for most of the run but then it seemed to subside towards the end of the run, I also did my standard lower body weight training and core training that lasted for about 30 minutes... I am alittle short on time so I will have to cut things short, have a great day.

Rest. No running today. I felt I needed to take it easy today so no running, I did walk 18 holes of golf at Hobble Creek Golf Course this afternoon... I will resume running tomorrow and on through Saturday, I am just taking it a day at a time. Leg feels good, it has been kind of aching, just sore, totally unrelated to the injury so just trying to build back up slowly, and take it easy...

See ya tomorrow.

4 miles on a recovery run this morning, nice and easy... My average pace was 9:11 with and average heart rate of 141, total time was 36:54. I am still getting some pain in my left leg area but it doesn't feel like the same pain when I had my injury, and it seems to recover by the next days run so I don't know. If it starts to get any worse to the point that it doesn't recovery then I might have to take some more time off,  but we shall see... Strength wise my legs did feel alittle better this morning, which is a good sign, we shall see what tomorrow brings and go from there. I also did the standard lower body weight training and core training, total time was 30 minutes...

Rest again today, leg was a little sore so I took the day off. I will try again in the morning and see how it goes. The pain seems more muscle than bone so I am trying not to take it to seriously, see you tomorrow...

I went six miles this morning just trying to see how I would feel and how I would hold up. My splits went as follows; 9:02(154), 8:36(152), 9:25(146), 9:08(145), 9:15(151), 9:12(148) total time was 54:51 with an average pace 9:07 heart rate average was 149. My second mile was cool, I felt like picking up the pace so I did, kept it about a minute off my marathon pace and it felt good. after that I slowed down and did the rest of the miles at recovery pace, my heart rate is still out of wack and is all over the place but I am hoping this will correct its self down the road. My leg feels pretty good and I have hardly any pain, which is a good sign, I wore a support today and it seemed to help so that is also really cool... That is about it, I guess I will see ya on Monday.
