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.

1 mile running with the different groups at the 11 year old scout day camp.  I woke up this morning not feeling good at all.  I think I might have gotten some heat stroke from the last few days running in the heat of the day and not being properly hydrated or prepared.

Much better run tonight compared to how I have felt the last few runs.  I basically took Saturday and Sunday off so the extra rest may have helped some.  I was still struggling some with a cough, but overall a pretty good run.  I went over 600 North, then past Hurricane Elementary, down to Classic Sports stopped in for a bit to look at some soccer cleats for Jansen and then home via city park for a quick drink, had to extend some at the end to make it 8.

Played basketball for an hour tonight.  The games were pretty intense and I really felt tired for most of the night, in fact I left an hour early because physically I was just done.

Basketball this morning, couldn't stopping cough

Good workout this afternoon.  I did my Toquerville Tempo route from mile post 5.  The goal was 4 miles at 6:26 pace.  Last time I did this workout was on 7-13

7-13

I went 6:12, 6:25, 6:33, 6:14

25:29 (6:22)

Today was better, nice cool weather a little rain but also had a headwind.

1-5:57

2-6:22

3-6:32

4-5:56

24:51 (6:12)

So basically the 2nd and 3rd miles were the same as last time.  I just started fasted and ended faster than last time.

I'm still not feeling any excitement or prepared to run a marathon in a few weeks.

We had a pretty rough night at our house.  Joslin didn't sleep very well so Sunny was up most of the night with her.  Anyway I did get out this morning.  I took Joslin in the stroller and ran out past the Intermediate School and then back home 10 miles pretty slow.  She slept for about an hour which was good and Sunny was also able to get in a nap while we were gone.

Nice easy two miles to the cow field and back to start the morning.  I'm starting to feel a little better not coughing as much.

Ran over to the high school and back home, still pretty hot outside.  I talked to Marcus about Jordan's ankle and knee, probably won't play Friday night.
