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.

Black Sheep workout. John Straley led us through the paces on the U of U campus.  Ran the "Golden Mile" around campus alternating hard/easy on each quarter. Then the meat of the workout was 4 x 90 seconds, starting on the flat and running up hill on the center of campus. With a piece of chalk in hand, we all marked our finishing spot and then tried to beat it on each subsequent interval. Then 4 x 1 minute up the same hill, only without any flat part, same chalk drill. Then another "golden mile" alternating minute on/minute off. My hamstrings are toast. I need a massage.

I ran a new trail segment in Red Butte canyon. More uphill than the traditional route but I enjoyed the change in scenery. I don't know why I chose a hilly route after yesterdays uphill brutality.

Cucina loop on the shoreline trail. I was running at record pace for this route until I stopped and checked out a couple of yard sales in the last mile. Didn't buy anything.
