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 first run post marathon, my legs felt pretty good but I had a few knots in both calfs but I actually felt pretty good. The plan is to ease back into running this week and hopefully get back to a full training next week, but that all depends on how the old legs are recovering.  I ran out towards Payson and just tried to get the legs moving, my average pace was 8:46 with my total time at 35:40 I didn't wear my HR monitor this morning so I don't have any numbers on that. I finished up with my upper body weight training and then some push-ups. I am in the runners series again and my plan is to run the Saint George Half and then Spectrum 10K again,  with my son Ethan running the Spectrum 10K with me, should be a fun time!

See ya Tomorrow.

I ran out past the stake center and points beyond this morning, the legs are coming around and the knots in my calf's were all but gone, my achilles on my left foot still got a little stiff towards the end but a lot less than Monday's run. My average pace was 8:40 with my total time at 35:31, no HR info as I didn't wear my strap again. towards the end I was able to get into a really good rhythm for about a half mile and my pace was 7:30 for that little stretch, after the run I did my upper body weight training and then some push-ups.

Ethan had another good soccer game last night! They played Park City again and it was tied through the first half and then Ethan and his Friend Zac just exploded with 2 quick goals and then we just piled it on from there and ended up winning 6 to 0! On top of his goal Ethan had two awesome assists, it was so cool!

See ya tomorrow.

I did a afternoon run today out to mini GU corner and then back to the house, the legs were a little tight but after about a mile I stopped and stretched and then they seemed a lot better. It was pretty hot but not to bad, I was able to get into a pretty good rhythm and on mile 3 without knowing I had a 7:40 mile, I wasn't trying to push it but I had really good form and that always seems to make it easy. I just tried to keep it steady on the way back and enjoy the sunshine! My average pace was 8:19 with my total time at 50:30, I still have a little bit of a knot with my right calf but I don't really feel it until about 4 miles and then its just kind of there, but its real slight so no big concern. I will run just 3 to 4 miles tomorrow and then try and see if I can do 8 miles Saturday before I have to head to Ethan's soccer game up in  Kaysville.

See ya tomorrow.
