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 4 miles after work and I ran out towards Payson past the old barn via canal road, after returning home and realizing that I didn't have to take Ethan to Cross Country I went out for a couple more miles out past the stake center. Pace was easy and just enjoying the nice afternoon temps! My average pace was 8:56 with a total time of 55:15, after the run I did some lite upper body weight training and then some push-ups. My abdomen was ok, I've been doing what the Doctors have told me to do but it feels better when and after I run, so for now I will run and see how it goes.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past the stake center this morning, my legs were really dead and my lower right leg felt like it was going to give out in me! I ran 4 miles in 40 minutes, just really, really slow! But it was still good to get out even though my old body seems to be falling apart!

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past the old barn on canal road towards Payson and man did I feel a lot better this morning than yesterday, I still don't have a lot of zip in my legs yet but at least I could break a 9 minute pace... My average pace was 9:00 and my total time was 36:41, still slow I know but 4 minutes faster than yesterday's fiasco!  I made sure that I drank more water than usual yesterday and I seemed to feel so much better, I think I need to make sure I get enough during the day.  The plan is to do no more than 4 miles a day for awhile, i might do one longer run during the week but no more than 8 miles when and if I do that. I want to use this month to get my legs back and then start training for the ST. George Half marathon in January starting in November.

I ran out to the base of Harrys Hill and decided to run Pretty Little Hill loop and then back to the house, I felt okay today and I feel like my body is starting to co-operate for a change. I'm still not real fast but all my aches and pains seem to be getting better, my average pace 8:55 and my total time was 46:56. I'm going Pheasant hunting tomorrow with Ethan early so I will probably do my run when we get back, it should be a great day!

See ya tomorrow.

My goal today was to run out to GU corner and then back to the house via canal road, I felt a little tired the first mile or so and then my legs seemed to loosen up and I had a pretty good rhythm towards the end. My average pace was 8:55 which is still slower but I'm just happy to be out running, my body still feels tender  but it seems to be coming around pretty good. I should be able to get up to 30 miles next week and then keep my weekly mileage there for a while, it's been a pretty good week.

See ya Monday.
