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 2.5 miles up the La Verkin Twist then turned around and came back down.  I didn't feel very good at all on the run, but just plodded along.  When I got home I did 20 minutes on the exercise bike, followed by 1 mile on the treadmill wearing the Five Fingers.

60 minutes basketball this morning.

Good workout this afternoon.  Did 3 miles at 7:30 pace over to the Substation and then did my 2 mile tempo back to La Verkin.

1-5:40 last week was 5:53

2-6:10 last week was 6:08, today there was a very strong headwind on this mile.

11:50 overall, 5:56 average

I felt pretty good today during the tempo

I did a tempo run yesterday and basically another one today.  Anytime I run with Clyde, Logan, Dave, Aaron and Steve I have to work just to stay with them on their easy pace.  I did 6 with them and then slowed down and finished the last 4 with Bill and Mike. 

I averaged 7:28 for the entire run, but the first 6 were probably closer to 7:00 or even sub 7 pace.

 Today was the longest run I've done since the marathon, and I actually felt pretty good, just got to keep working at it and slowly I will get back into shape.
