Personal:

Pride necessarily sprouts and grows; a pride that can only come from relentless kneading of unwilling flesh, painful months of grinding and burning away all that is heavy, all that is strength-sapping and useless to the body as a projectile. --John L. Parker, Jr., runner/author

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. --Theodore Roosevelt

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.

18.2 Miles in 2:05:50 (6:55 pace) on a cold morning of 25 degrees in Little Rock.  With snow in the forecast all afternoon and into Monday morning, I hit the road early for what turned out to be a very solid, disciplined run.  Garmin 3-Mile pace splits included the following:  

Miles 1-3:  6:52/mile

Miles 4-6:  6:48/mile

Miles 7-9:  6:53/mile

Miles 10-12:  7:00/mile

Miles 13-15:  6:58/mile

Miles 16-18:  6:59/mile

Final 0.2:  80 seconds

I felt pretty good for most of the run, taking a gel (with 10 second water break) after completing Mile 9 and Mile 13; right knee held up well until beginning of Mile 16 when going down a short hill, and at that point, the remainder of the run was pretty tough.  

Looking forward to a scheduled day off tomorrow.  Hopefully, I'll be off work and playing with the kids in the snow!

I had a good Marathon Pace/Tempo run today on the treadmill.  The workout included: 

1 Mile at 8:00;  

3 Miles at 7:13;

4X800m Repeats at 3:09 (6:18) with 2:00 minute joggin recovery between repeats;

3 Miles at 6:40;

1 Mile at 7:13; and

0.8 Miles at 8:00.

11.8 Miles Total on a blistering, cold day in Little Rock.  There are still a few patches of ice on the ground from the weekend's winter blast, and aside from being busy at work, I really saw no reason to risk aggravating my knee or injuring myelf by forcing the issue and running outside.  I will have plenty of one-on-one time with the pavement when I do the first 20 miler on my training schedule this Sunday.
