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.

Ran 1.5 miles over to the bridge and then got in with Jordan and rode to the high school then ran back home from there, for a total of 5 miles.  It was still pretty hot out but not a bad run considering I took all of last week off.

I got up and went over and ran with the Hurricane Cross Country Team.  We did 2 laps warm-up then a 3 mile run over to the cave by Pah Tempe and then back to the track.  At the track the kids did  3x 200m and then 2 laps cool-down.  I did 3 200's with one of the slower kids (43, 43, 39) and then I did another set of 200s with a faster kid (39, 37, 36).  After the team left I did 3 x 800.

1-2:54

2-2:57

3-3:03

Nothing great to report on the 800s, just got them done. I only did 1 mile cool-down.

Ran over past Hurricane City park 3 miles and then back home, stopped on the way back and got a drink.  I've been struggling lately, legs really sore.  I soaked in Jarren's pool for 10 minutes when I got home.

Good start to the week.  Played basketball for 60 minutes then went out to my school and did a 6.5 mile run I will call Figure 8. Went out past church farm, then turned on the road to Sand Hollow, then looped back past some farms, then up past Jerry's, then back to the church.  Pace was slow, as are most of my runs lately.
