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.

The legs finally did,feel like going for a little run today. My quads are still on the tender side, been rolling them which seems to help doesn't seem to be any damage after Saturdays marathon. I will go easy tomorrow as well and work my way back into the routine and begin to get ready for St. George in October.

I wanted to do a longer run today,  I knew I would not have time tomorrow.  The soreness I. My legs is all but gone, they mostly just feel a bit on the tired side. A in all it was a nice run and just felt good to get out.

I did not get out until about 10:30 this morning, need.ess to say it warmed up very quickly. My legs are still in recovery mode. Not a lot of zip to them right now, but that will come back in time. Nice easy runs until they do and then we will hit it hard again and get redy for St George in the fall.

What is with the wind every afternoon, it's either coming strong out of the nonetheless west or the south west. It was a head wind for half of my run today, and at my back in the way home. My legs today felt like blocks of cement again, today is the first back to back days of running sense the marathon. The aches ans pains are all gone , but they still feel on the tired side. Still another great ru. Though, loved it.

Another very windy run today, in fact more so than yesterday. At the begining of my run the come hard out of the southwest, then on the way back it switched to the northwest. just a real weird pattern this year with all the wind.

I did the extended golf course loop today, the legs are still feeling on the tired side. Just went with the run and did my best and still had a great time.

Headed out the door just after 5 am this morning. What a beautiful morning to, this is the kind of morning you wait for all winter and just soak it all in. I wasn't sure how far I would go this morning, as it has only been two out from doing the marathon. My legs seem to be doing well and recovering just fine. I went up over Harry's and then headed up to the round about over to loafers canyon road and out by the canal. Feeling good and it was nice to be out in the early morning air. Just a great run.

If the wind I'd blowing hard at St. George Marathon this I will be ready for it. It seems as though the wind is blowing every afternoon, not just a little breeze but a good,strong steady blow.

I did the golf course loop today, seen some deer, hawks, and pheasants. Nice run enjoyed very much. Well it sounds like the rest of the week,is,going to,top,out at a 100 degrees for the five or six. Well make for some hot runs.

Nice run this afternoon out past mini gu corner and back, the wind was still a bit on the strong. Not as strong as yesterday though, the temps are heating up again and will be around a 100 the rest of the week.

My legs are starting to bounce back from the marathon of few weeks ago, starting to feel like going again. I will keep it easy for the rest of the week and get back into hill repeats next week.
