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.

3.4 in the morning. found casey on the field so ran with him for a bit

2x2 mile after. Went 10:01 (wheeled out 2 mile... we had 2.1 on watches) then we did a fast start for the first 800 in 2:21, then next mile was 5:02, then last 800 was 2:26. Felt pretty relaxed the whole time, didn't want to go into the well at all today so happy with the turnout.

Really fun time, warmed up 2 miles then did some strides, grabbed a piece of gum and got ready to race.

Race started off fast, I always blow up if I start too fast so I started near the back. I moved up after 800, and kept moving up through the first 4k til I was on the back of the front pack. This is where my first mistake was, the front 3rd of the pack broke off, and dropped the back 2/3rds Then a few seconds later this back pack split into two groups. I didn't recognize either of these splits and got stuck with the back of both split offs. I surged up where one of the NAU guys was dropping of the 2nd pack and ran with him the next 4k picking off people. Around 3k to go we dropped a few SUU guys, and I saw two more NAU guys. I tried to drop the NAU guy with me but he kept matching my surges, then putting in a surge, and we just kept alternating til we caught the other two NAU guys that were like 50 meters and 75 meters in front. Then us 4 all ran together til the finish where two of them out kicked me, I out kicked one of them and an SUU guy who was falling back. 

Super happy with the race, a great starting point for me, hungry for more. 

Plan for the future is just working on closing the gap between the front guys and me.

AM: around campus alone. 4.05

PM: 9.5x1000. Got a side ache on the 2nd to last one so I just hopped in at the 500 mark. Kramer and I decided to work on closing the gap so we started at normal pace, then after 5 we went about a second behind the pro group, then we went in the mix with the pro group. Kinda weird to have Jared Ward running next to you realizing he got 6th at the olympics. 

3:07, 3:07, 3:05, 3:06, 3:04, 3:01, 3:01, 2:59, 3:00, 1:27 for the 500.

3.1 in the morning. It was quite cold. felt wayyy better than last week. #blessed!

8 in the afternoon plus some strides. Trying to get my leg turnover quicker without shortening my stride length significantly. It's pretty much a complex math problem of recipricals.

4.1 in the morning, I was kinda cold so I got moving a little too quick

Michigan workout. Struggled breathing... saw the chiropractor after and realized why, my T4, T5, and one other that I didn't catch what he said we out as well as my some muscles were really tight. 

4:30 mile, 5:04 tempo, 3:24 1200, 2:31 (only did 800 cuz the trainer was trying to fix my rib). 2:12 800, 4:57 tempo, 64 400, 2:36 tempo (only did 800). Real struggle bus.

3 in the morning

workout in the afternoon. my body wasn't handling it so i just went back after 2 intervals. my left hamstring was hurting, and my right calf as well as my heel area from the bursitis (but that wasn't too bad). Then I just couldn't run. don't know why but i'll be better by next week hopefully
