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.

Gravel Pit out and back easy 3 miles.

Ran 5 miles out to get my truck which was at HIS.  When I got out there I decided to mile a mile around the field like we make the kids do during PE.  I was able to hit a 6:37, which isn't bad considering the heat.

Slept in and then got out and did a nice 14 mile run.  I went out on 600 North, passed people going the other direction doing the Red Rock Relay. I did the extra mile loop through Sky Mountain and then out to SR 9 came back into Hurricane to 1760 West and then out to 400 South.  I felt pretty good for the most part on the run, it did get a little warm at the end.  I averaged 7:53 which I guess is ok for the run being rolling.

2 miles easy this morning.

Did the La Verkin Loop with an extension down into Overlook Sub and then over to the cow field.  I really didn't feel like running tonight, also cut the run short due to lightning

Rode the exercise bike for 20 minutes this morning.

 Good run this evening.  I ran 3 miles out to Paul's house then turned around.  I made it out in 24:00 for 8 min pace.  I decided to push it a little more coming back, I hit 20:59 so right at 7:00 min pace, I even ran the whole way up the hill coming into La Verkin, haven't done that for a long time.

Woke up early so decided to go out for a run, this would actually be good if I did this every morning.  I just did an easy 5 over to the Hurricane City Park and back.

Did 5 this afternoon down through Confluence Park.  The first 3 felt good, walked up the hill and the last mile was easy.  Nice afternoon for a run.

Easy 3 miles this morning.

Great tempo run this afternoon.  I did a 3 mile warm-up up to the Substation on 600 North felt terrible on the warm-up, wasn't sure how the body would respond to a 2 mile tempo.  After stretching got into the tempo.  The last time I did this was back on May 8th ran 11:44 (5:44, 6:00) I was really hoping to be somewhere close to that today.

1-5:49

2-5:50

11:40 (5:50 avg)

So I was 4 seconds faster which is good.  So far fastest time of the year was March 29 11:29 (5:39, 5:50) had a really strong tailwind that day also.

Anyway did 1 mile cool-down then rode the bike up and down the street a few times to test it out, of course my luck after doing that I already had a flat tire on the back wheel.
