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.

1.5 mile shakeout in the morning 2.5 warm up. Strides 3k race, went out hard. Was in 2nd and within the first 400 my body was already tired and wasn't responding, decided to try to hold on. Held on somewhat and then kicked. Next time gonna open in like a 66 and come through the mile in 4:23ish Then I think I can cruise the last part. 8 mile cooldown. Seattle is beautiful! Also got to talk to Talon Hull the Davis Slayer (he has a blog but hasn't been using it now)

30 minutes of biking before practice.

just over 10 miles in the freezing cold, windy outdoors.

steeple drills after. Also first time jumping hurdles, it honestly felt really weird but I'm sure after time of doing it I will get better

stretch, roll out, and ice bath after.  time seems to move pretty slow biking and ice bathing so I decided that what feels like 5 minutes on the stationary bike is actually only 1 minute passing by. what feels like 5 minutes of icebathing is 2.5 minutes passing by. what feels like 5 minutes of running is about 4 minutes passing by. what feels like 5 minutes of eating is 10 minutes actually. what feels like 5 minutes of being on my phone is actually 1 hour. lol.

Out to the canyon and back and then some strides with Kramer. Super weird cuz my back hurt and my breathing was bad for the first 7 miles, then all of a sudden it opened up and I could breath great! I don't understand why, but it's super nice when I can breath well!

Early shakeout to get the legs moving. 2.1 miles

Warm up 2 miles

5k debut. Legs felt really good, back and breathing were alright. Also decided to chew some gum because that seems to help my back not tighten. Went out near the back of the pack holding 68's. Came through the mile in 4:33 and felt great! Held that and then with a mile to go started feeling pretty tired, and I honestly don't even remember what happened but one second the pack was there, then the next the pack was gone and I was following one person, so I tried to chase the pack down but was all alone. 1200 to go I my back started hurting and I felt that I could have possible put on more speed and maybe made it to the end, but I was worried I wouldn't make it and die, so I slowed down. Looking back I wish I would have just tried cuz I think I might have actually pulled it off. But I was going slow for the 1200-400 to go and then knew I could bring it in.

Not a bad first 5k. I think I could have gone to that next state when I was hurting and speed up instead of slowing down, if that feeling comes again I'll try that.

Overall happy with the performance

Nice run, nothing too fast. Just 10 out to the canyon and back. Plan is to double today and go 5 so that I won't have to do as much come race day

2 mile warmup, 3k race, 10 miles after. 

Felt good in the race, I honestly was really scared about my back hurting so I didn't go with the leaders. We opened in 66, then 64, then I went 69, without realizing how slow it was. came through the mile in 4:29, then realized that my back wasn't hurting, and that I felt pretty good. Started picking it up from there and the 3rd place guy started dropping off so I was able to catch him at the end. Happy about the race because my back didnt hurt and I could breath. I think that's a sign of good things to come. Plan going forward is to start putting in some more mileage by going 3-4 in the morning and then 8ish in the afternoon. I think I just lack some mileage and base to be able to put together a few great races during outdoor track.

4 and a quarter in the morning. my hips are wrecked cuz I went salsa dancing last night plus we did lots of steeple drills yesterday.

 

8x400. my breathing was pretty bad by the end, kinda frustrating but i'll figure it out. I guess at least it's not something that doesn't let me run at all. 62, 62 62, 61, 59, 62, 61, 30 (i just did a 200)

10.1 in the morning on bonneville. Makes me miss the trails we always ran in high school.  After did some steeple stretches and jumped some hurdles. I feel like my right leg is a better lead and trail leg. also the hurdlers were practicing when I was going over the hurdles so they probably thought I was a dweeb lol. 

just over 3 in the afternoon with the team. got a massage on my back and neck trying to loosen it up and it hurt soo bad but hopefully it helps
