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.

pm--6.5 So yesterday, I decided that I would jump into personal 5k training this week. A mile time trial sounded like a good way to gauge some sort of initial fitness. My stomach was feeling jacked as I started to run but mellowed as I hit the track. I did one lap of agilities prior to the mile. Going into something like this is a bit intimidating. I caught my breath and went. I hit 1:25 through 400 and knew that I wanted to hit each 200 in the low :40s. After 800, I was ready to bail but fought to keep pushing and came through 1200 @ 4:20. I hung on through half of the last lap and tried to hammer it on the final 200. It didn't happen as well as planned, although I was able to push much of the last 100. I ended @ 5:50.07. Pretty happy. I was shooting for 5:45, but anything under 6:00 would have made me happy. I ran one more lap to try to catch my breath and then cooled a little around the neighborhood. Here's to more hard efforts in the next few months to come.

pm--7.5 Tonight was the 1st in what will become a weekly routine--mile repeats. It was 4 x mile tonight. Earlier, I tried to be helpful to my wife and parents, so I didn't get out for a run before the light dwindled. Consequently, I defaulted to the tready @ 1.5% incline. Which is somewhat comparable to the grass or grass/dirt loop that I hoop to use for this going forward. My 85% pace is ~7:00 min./mile. It felt decent as far as the breathing went, but the legs had to get moving. That seems like 1 of the greatest benefits to this workout--getting used to what the body feels like at higher speeds. Anyway, the run tonight felt good. Now for some trailrunning and elevation work the rest of the week.

am--7.5 Thanksgiving trail run. Normally this happens over on the Barrel Roll, but today Tom and I did Moe's via Zen. It was a nice run. Lots of folks are out exercising on Thanksgiving. Perhaps it's a time where we are grateful and self-reflective.
