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.

3 easy in the morning.

8 in the afternoon. the team split up and it ended up being just me, mantz, mckay, and casey. I feel like I'm surrounded by champions!

steeple drills after. Felt pretty good going over the hurdles.

4 in the morning. Felt suprisingly good.

Workout in the afternoon. I went to the chiropractor before and it seemed to help out some. Definitely the best workout for me in a long time. 4xmile. 4:45, 4:38, 4:34, 4:37. I can tell that I am really really fit, I just got to figure out the back/breathing problem completely. But really happy with the workout. Also on the second rep, i was behind zac jacklin and he clipped kramer's foot and did a studder and mckay was up on my shoulder so i had no were to go but try to stop, but i hit jacklin's foot and it rolled my ankle pretty good and I went like 5 meters of the awkward almost falling/trying to keep up and somehow I managed to stay up. My ankle kinda hurt but I think with the adrenaline and all it wasn't too bad but now it is feeling really really stiff.  

weights after.

Kinda a bummer, woke up in the morning and my ankle was super stiff so I didn't run.

In the afternoon I got it taped up and was told that I had to run on the alter G or on the grass so I chose grass and did 8 miles of grass loops. 

After I iced it and I think it should be good enough by tomorrow for the workout

goal was to do the first steeple workout but after talking to the trainer he said absolutely no way I could even try because of my ankle. so I did the workout with the 5k/10k guys. 6x800, 2x400 was what the workout was but my breathing was kinda bad so I ended up doing 3x800, then rested one then did the last 2 800's and then did 200, and then 400. went 2:13, 2:11, 2:09, rest, 2:10, 2:12, 30, 60.  Ankle felt fine for the most part. should be 100% by next week.

Super tired in the morning because I was up late at a campfire with some friends, but I made it to practice and got the 15 in. also very little to no pain in my ankle, it still is a little swollen and purple.

Tired 3.06 in the morning.

8.5x1000. Did 5 then had to use the bathroom. Did half of the next cuz i made it out late, then did 2 more with the team, then did 1 by myself for what I missed. all were pretty quick. I was a bit worried cuz my breathing was all haywire the first one but it didnt get any worse so I was able to do it.

3.1 in the morning, I did grass loops yesterday at intramural field, then we also did our workout there so I decided to go to the track and do loops on that field. Found Mantz there and we went 2 together on the field. 

8 more in the afternoon. feeling tired

Workout in the morning with Clayson.  5x800 with the last lap over hurdles. felt pretty clunky at first but afterwards got more into the groove. went between 68-72 for the first 400 and 71-74 over the hurdles. Definetly gonna focus on getting the technique down better because when I first started going over I feel like I completely forgot what I was doing and started jumping more vertical instead of forward. 

Wow, lots of news in like 2 hours. we'll start with the good and end with the bad. Good: we had our first day of practice for XC 2020. The fuel card still works! I have time to build and get really fit! Bad: that's cuz track is cancelled.  4 in the afternoon with the team. Crazy stuff

Ran Fire Road with clayson in the morning. Super beautiful! Ran into Tawny which was fun! I guess the good thing about no track season is I can hit up the trails! Also, Clayson decided to bomb it on the downhill, so I followed along, our last half mile was 2:14 haha.

Quite a run. Ran from my house, did extended mountain run backwards, then ran up to middle spring, then looped around, and got back on mountain run, ran down by Lone Peak and back home. Lots of vert in comparison to what we normally have been doing at BYU which made it tiring. But trails are why I love running so it was quite beautiful!

Went on Bonneville to Battlecreek, and then back to Kramer's house.  Lots of trails and lots of vert these past couple days

2x(1200, 800) 3:36, 2:20, 3:36, 2:18. Fitness seems really good, form was pretty bad. I started going all Kenyan style jumping the barriers.

Went out towards AF, found Katie and Jake bybee. Then on the way back found the other LP squad. Also RYBY said that all Lone Peak alumni that break 4:45 get an elite miler shirt.

Took the rest of last week off because I was feeling pretty beat up. Just a nice easy run today and will slowly build up.
