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.

Went out with some friends this morning for a run.  I was not feeling motivates at all!!  No one was!!  We decided to run some hills today.  We ran for about a mile and then ran up and down the "hill" twice.  We are planning on doing that every Wednesday and increasing how many times we run the "hill".  Once we feel good about that we will move on to "THE HILL".  It is a stretch or road that is a continuously steep hill.  I have run it a few times but want to do it faster.  I'm not sure but I think it is about 2miles long.  I need to start setting some goals that will help me see improvement.  I have gotten faster but want to get stronger.

 Over all it was a good morning.

Ran a new course today with a friend who has started running.  She is a strong runner and helps me keep a fast pace.

We had a lot of good hills in the run.  I have a love hate relationship with hills.  They kick my butt but I feel so good after I hit the peak.  I also know they will help me be a stronger runner!!

Did a run that I was not too sure about.  I ran 6 to my friends son's soccer game and then ran 6 back home.  I didn't think I would make it all the way home since I haven't ran a long run for a while.  I was totally prepared to call my hubby to come grab me at some point, but I made it all the way home and not only that I felt awesome!!
