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 running. I did walk a couple of miles with my wife and she smoked me. I can run faster than her, but can't keep up when we're walking.  Sore, congested.

Easy run in the meadow to move the legs and test the back.  Still getting over the cold.  Beautiful morning, but I didn't feel so hot overall.

Easy run back to the spot in Research Park where I tweaked my back a week ago.  I guess you could say I was facing my demons, but the demon was a fire hydrant, so . . . there wasn't a whole lot of drama.  But it's cool, that hydrant and I are friends now.  I promised to chase away any suspicious looking dogs if I'm ever in the area. 

 Felt 70%.

Run with the Radda crew.  My energy level was still a little dim and I still have some congestion, but feeling much better. No problems with the back, just a very light, dull ache on occasion.  Not sure if the electric stim and ultrasound have helped, or just time and ice.  Nice to run again.

Climbed from my house up to the Shoreline trail behind the JCC and into Red Butte Canyon.  Stunningly glorious running; everything is so green now! I remember the dismal days of January when I was running in 7 degree weather everyday and it really wasn't that long ago.  Guess you can't get too hung up on the permanency of these things. 

 Lungs and sinuses still clearing out, but much better now. The back is just a little stiff, but not sore, and no issues while running.

Cucina loop (Bonneville Shoreline trail) with a group of 10 -12.  Sam & I added an extension on the trail over past Red Butte for a total of 15.  The various sights this morning included wildflowers, tanks, and chanting zen monks.  This was my longest run since March 3rd, the week before the SI problem kicked in.  Man, that seems like a long time ago. No problems with the back today; still a little lingering congestion, but nothing significant.
