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.

NO RUN. Spent 14 hours in a U-Haul from Boise City, OK to Pleasant View, UT

18.02 mile long run to make up for missing a long run on Saturday. My overall pace was 9:27/mile because I ended up making several long turns since I'm not familiar with Pleasant View yet. I ended up on trails for a good portion of the run, some of which were pretty technical, plus the fact that there were many hills, and my body is not used to running hills. I enjoyed the run and am happy to have made a few wrong turns so I know what not to do next time.

21.01 mile long run. Celeste drove me to the top of Powder Mountain, which is a ski resort near Eden, UT. I left with the intention to drive up a canyon and get experience running down a gradual downhill to prepare for the Huntsville marathon. This run turned out to be anything but that. The first 6 or so miles from Powder Mountain to Eden dropped 4,000 feet in elevation. It was so steep that I was "braking" the pretty much the entire way down. By the end of that, my legs were already shredded. Then I had 8-9 mostly flat miles, which was nice. Those went pretty well, but I was wishing I had more water than I did (I dropped two water bottles along the way as we drove up, but it ended up being not nearly enough). Then, for around 2 miles, I went up a huge hill through the canyon back over to the Ogden side. I ended up walking almost the whole time because my legs were shredded and I was dehydrated, so I didn't have much in me to try to run it. From there, it was about 2 miles of downhill out of the canyon, then 4-ish to make it home. I was disappointed to find out that the course ended up being not what I thought it would. By the end, I was just happy to finish alive.

I am so sore today I can hardly walk, which obviously is not where I want to be at this point in my training. My calves feel like they have golf balls rubbing on them every time I take a step. My quads aren't as bad. It was a big mistake to run the course I did yesterday.
