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 7 miles out to Wal-Mart.  It was pretty windy this afternoon, and I didn't feel that great, my calves were really tight.  I was just glad to get in the miles.

Not much time today, only did . I bought some weights and a bar today, so I'm ready to start a lifting program.  I hope it helps me get stronger and also helps in the weight loss program.

Ran 4 miles over to the real estate sign and then back home.  I felt pretty good.  Once I got home I did 2 more miles on the treadmill and then lifted weights for 20 minutes.

Went and played basketball this morning.

Good run this afternoon, went from the house over to the Hurricane City park and then back home.  I ran into John Stucki on the way home, always interesting stories talking to him.  I ran mile 4 in 6:16, just wanted to throw a little surge in and see how I felt.  Overall average was 7:30

Met up with Bill, Mike, Scott, and Tyler was down from Spanish Fork.  I wanted to run the new St. George Half course, so I would have a better idea what to expect new weekend for the race, even though I don't have any goals and I'm treating it just like another training run.  Anyway, we all started out together the first few miles, then Mike and Bill picked it up a little, but nothing too crazy.  Tyler, Scott, and I just kept it easy, we cut off the last three to only make it 10, but I was fine with that.  Averaged 7:52 and felt pretty good.  I feel like I'm making some progress.  Today's run put me at 40 for the week, which is good for me right now.  Next month I'm going to try to increase to 50 miles a week.
