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'm feeling pretty good, just some soreness in my calf that I having been fighting and the darn thing almost did me in during the race. Quads feel pretty darn good this time and I think that has to do with all the downhill hill training that I was able to do so I think if I do SG next year then I will try and get my calf's stronger and then continue with more downhill and uphill training. We are heading down to Arizona to stay with My wife's sister for a few days, just to hang out by the pool and recoup and spend time with the family, should be a great time.

See ya Later.

I'm still in Arizona and I was feeling pretty good so I decided to go for a little shake out run just to see how my legs are recovering, I started out real easy and then as my legs got loosened up I just kinda of stayed with the pace that was comfortable. It was a beautiful morning for a run and I really enjoyed it... My calf was still a little stiff but not bad at all and by the end of the run I hardly noticed it, my quads were a little tight to begin with but by the end they were feeling pretty darn good too, so I have recovered way fast after this Marathon than I have the previous ones that I have ran. I think alot of that has to do with all the downhill training that I was able to do this time around so I think the goal is to get in some real good Payson canyon runs for each training cycle if its possible. My average pace was 9:06 with a total time of 21:14, just going to do some more RR down here in Queens Creek AZ with family and then we will be heading home on Sunday, its a nice place to recover after a marathon.

See ya later.
