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.

Well nothing long, but still nice to get out.  This was the first run Sunny has done in a long time. We just did the cow field and back.  I fixed the tires on the jogging stroller and we brought Joslin along.

5 miles from Color Country Auto, had to drop my truck off to get the ball joint fixed. Anyway this was not a very good run.  I averaged only 9 min pace and had to stop a number of times, very windy out and I just felt terrible.

4.5 mile run.

I started with Sunny and we went over past Farmer's and back on 300 West to 200 North then she headed home and then I went on to Pah Tempe.  I struggled again on this run, no energy.

Unplanned tempo workout.  Sunny drove me out to Anderson Junction.  I did 1 mile warm-up then 2 x 2 miles.  The first two miles was 13:14 (6:36 pace) then I stopped went the bathroom at the church in Toquerville, then did .25 recovery then did the next two 13:28 (6:43 pace)  I would have preferred to just have ran 4 miles, but I was really having some stomach issues after the first two, glad the church was open. Finished with 1.75 miles home

I ran down through Pah Tempe, then up the Overlook trail, did a little exploring over by the "L" trying to determine if an eagle scout project for Jansen would work or not.  Once I was back on the road I ran into a large bull snake.  I'm not a fan of any kind of snake.

I have really struggled this spring with allergies.  Today was no different, just a lot of coughing and a struggle to be outside.  I ended up not running, hopefully I will feel better tomorrow.

7 painfully slow miles. I did the Valley Academy loop right after school and it was pretty hot outside.  I didn't feel very good, but hey at least I got some miles in.  Still struggling with a cough and allergies.

I will call this the Tractor Supply Loop. I ran out on 600 North and then came back on State Street, this was my longest run of the year and also my highest mileage week of the year. I felt pretty good for most of the run, even though I was fighting a strong headwind for much of the run.

Tonight I ran on the treadmill at the gym.  I did the last 6 miles of the Boston Marathon Course on ifit, pretty cool.
