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.

Went easy for a bit to test my knee a bit. Did not feel any pain! Weird, but I'll take it so I decided to do the workout today. Caught the race bus taking runners back up to their cars. I got off and decided on a tough 16 mile long run with a 4 mile tempo to start going from Mtn Dell to the Parleys canyon junction and then back up to the Salt Lake 10 miler start. I then proceeded to run the last 10 miles at MP pace to the finish at the monument. Dehydrated at the end even with the water I got from a friendly runner who had finished the 10 miler. Total time was 1:30:41 with 10 miles at MP pace in 55:41. A little slow, but not too bad considering very little water and the wind changed directions coming down the canyon. A pretty dang good workout nonetheless. I love these fast paced 16 milers and I credit them in boosting my fitness more than anything else.

AM-5 miles easy at 7-7:30/mi pace. Rainy today, nice change from the heat today. Smelled fresh outside like wild flowers. Feeling warm and fuzzy this morning.

PM-5 miles easy again. 36:27 total time. Have to be careful with the knee. It is acting funny again. The bright side is that cardiovascular wise I am still in awesome shape. Felt like I was just puttin around tonight.

Pretty good race today considering the course and an overall net elevation gain too. Half of it was run in Sugar House park on a hilly grass course. The race turned left to go down to 1500 east and then wind its way up to the Presbyterian church. Great breakfast afterwards in a nice upbeat atmosphere inside. Oooh and fabulous prizes. Picked up 50 bucks, all in all not a bad day I must say. Masters did really well today scoring 1st and 2nd respectively. If they keep running like that I wont have a chance when I turn 40!

PM-7 miles easy. Fill in time later after I get back. 7 miles in 49:04 total.
