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.

Light speed today. 2 laps warmup, stretching and drills. Then we did a mile warmup, mile speed changes. We did 3 400s, 2 groups of people so that we could push Natalie while she did 800s (because she's just that amazing) and then 3 200s. All at mile pace. Each had a lap of recovery in between. Lots of recovery!!! :)

400s: 80, 78, 78.

200s: 36, 37, 36

Then I did 4 grass laps to get me to 7 miles I think it was.

Regions!!!

Total of 2 miles warmup (including speed changes.) Then I grabbed my spikes and ran over to the line and did some drills and strides. Counting those as a half mile because I did so many.

Then I ran the 1600. Unfortunately, this was my last chance to qualify for state. I had to get in the top 4 to do so, or run a 5:18. The first 2 laps were good, I was in fourth. Then on my third lap, I crashed, and let people go in front of me. I feel that if I would have kept up, then I would've been there. I got 8th. So at least I scored a point for our team. Ha I was also seeded 8th.

Then I did 2 miles cool down. Just did grass laps. Really disappointed, but maybe next year.

2 miles warmup, then a lap of speed changes when they called us for the 3200. I didn't have too high of hopes for the 32. Went over and did strides and drills.

Then they did the 3200. My plan was to go at 6 minute pace first mile then speed up 2nd mile. That didn't happen. I don't know my splits, but I know that I slowed down 2nd mile. I just wasn't in the racing mood. Got a 12:47.07. Then did a half mile cool down.

Then did a mile warmup including strides and drills. Then came the 800

I was talking to some Bountiful girl who was the only person seeded behind me, and I think we'd be great friends. Too bad she's on a different team. Then I made a decision that I wasn't going to let her beat me. haha probably not the nicest thing, but she seemed okay with it afterward. She's nice. :)

So the first lap bountiful girl was right on my heels. We were last and 2nd to last. But in the fastest heat. I tried to stay positive and work on pushing away from her. I focused on trying to catch other people, and finally in the the last 100 meters caught a clearfield girl!!! But got a 2:45. Oh well. I'm just happy I outkicked clearfield girl.

1/2 mile cool down. Then a little later, half mile warmup.

Last minute Bill switched me from the 4x800m relay into the 4x400m relay because the 4x800 wasn't scoring and didn't qualify, so he wanted our 4x400 team to go to state. I told him I could probably run a 75. So he switched me and Hanna places. Logan started first, and when I got the baton we were in last. only 5 teams though, so we just needed to beat 1. Well, I maintained our position. but ran a 73!! (my fastest 400 time) and then Sara got it, still in last, and Ellie got it, and pulled us through!!! We qualified!! :)

Then I did a mile cool down.

Today we just went for a run, which was really nice. Bill put me with the 30 minute group, which was weird because I was going for 40. I was supposed to go with them for their run and add 10 minutes. 

Well, that didn't exactly happen. I started with Sarah B. and Sam. They were going quite slow. I was used to a faster pace. We did a loop where we went along guardsman and down 500 S. and then back along 1300 E. 2 mile loop instead of 3. Haha. I broke off of them along 500 S. So when I got back I did 3 grass laps, then a mile and a half run that Abigail told me about. Then 1 more grass lap.

Got to 5 1/2 for the day.

AM:

I'm glad to not have a meet on the weekend!! I met some people at the track. We did 2 miles warmup, mile speed changes, then changed shoes. We did 3 sets of a 500, jog a 100, and then a 200. During the whole warmup, I was falling asleep. Don't know why. the first set woke me up, but I didn't do so hot. Then the 2nd set, I thought that I should pick it up and do better, and I did lots better. Then the last set I crashed. then did 2 300s. I just focused on that last little bit because that was where I was slipping. Then ran home and added a half mile to get to 7.

PM:

Ran 3 miles with Abigail.
