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.

Nice little workout this evening.  I dropped my truck off Color Country then ran home along 600 North.  I got to the sub station and then decided to do 2x1 mile repeats with 4:00 recovery.

1-6:25 felt pretty good, slowed down for a moment to throw a water bottle away in a trash can.

2-6:21

1 mile cool-down

Not a very good run this evening.  I did the Pah Tempe loop, but had to keep stopping to walk, lots of knee pain today.  Came home and did 20 minutes on the bike.

2 mile warm-up

1- The first mile was ok, I didn't go out too fast

2- This mile was terrible, very difficult with some steep hills, ended up walking

3- This mile was better, but never felt like I was racing more just going through the motions.

23:51, pretty slow 5K for me

Ran from the high school out on 400 South to 1760 West and then back to the high school. After that I came home and did 1 x 10 reps of circuit training, then 20 minutes on the bike.

5 miles down through Confluence Park, started off not feeling very good, legs especially hamstrings sore from lifting.  However, once I got into the run I felt ok, pace was pretty slow.

Did the Tractor Supply Loop.  I felt pretty good, for most of the run, even though the pace was pretty slow. Got home and did 10 minutes on the bike.
