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.

Good run this afternoon, even though I struggled making it out the door.  I was able to get in six miles for the day, so now I feel good about myself, especially considering the snow and colder weather this afternoon.  I ran over to 200 West in Hurricane then up past the middle school then home.

Busy with Driver's Education and a trip to St. George this evening, didn't get my run in, so I might have to punish myself and run twice as far tomorrow.

Best run in 2009 so far.  I missed yesterday, so I went a little longer today, it was nice because I had a little more time tonight since I didn't do Driver's Education today.  I had Sunny drive me up to the start of the Hurricane Half and then I ran home, right at 10 miles.

1-7:08-gradual downhill

2-6:58

3-7:05

4-7:25 small hill 

5-7:13

6-7:38 another hill

7-8:02 gradual hill

8-6:58 start of the downhill

9-6:21 steep downhill

10-6:36 first half gradual downhill, second half flat

 Overall time 1:11:32 average 7:09

I think this would be a good run to do more often as it gives me a variety of small gradual uphills, steep downhills, and some flat boring sections.

I felt pretty good except for my right hip, which I think might just be from a lack of stretching and also carrying some extra weight in the mid-section.  Anyway, glad to have this one in the bank and now I can enjoy watching the Jazz tonight.

I was really sore today, from my run yesterday so I took it very easy and only did 4 miles, not a lot but better than nothing.

Pretty good 10 mile run this afternoon.  Body still feeling pretty sore, but managed to run up over 600 North trail and then back into Hurricane and then home by way of Pah Tempe.  This was a decent week, still took days off on Wednesday and Friday, maybe next week I'll be able to go everyday.
