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.

5 easy miles this morning.

7 miles tonight, ran over to Hurricane and back home, then did an extra mile loop.  It is exactly 2.5 miles over to Hurricane City Park and a drinking fountain so that worked out good as it was still pretty hot when I left.  Pace was 7:58, I'm still running my easy runs pretty slow, but I guess slow miles are better than no miles at this point.

Big Workout #8 Tuesday morning 5 mile Tempo with the Bull and Bigfoot.  Didn't feel real great when I got up and this turned out to be a 3 star morning before the tempo even began.  Did a nice 2.5 mile warm-up then got into the tempo run.  Last week's time was 29:39 with a 5:55 average.  Today I started out a bit slower the first mile, then ran faster on each of the next 4 miles than I did last week.

1-5:46 relaxed (last week 5:33)

2-5:48 still feeling good (last week 5:52)

3-5:56 good mile today, much better than last week (6:06)

5K split 18:06, not much change from last week 18:07

4-5:58 struggling a little here (last week 6:05)

5-5:53 good push at the start and middle of this mile, slowed down a bit once I hit the last turn (last week 6:02)

Overall 29:26 average 5:52, this was a good improvement from last week's time of 29:39.  I think a few things helped. 1. More relaxed first mile. 2. Not as much stomach issues as last week. 3. Understood the course better and knew what to expect.

Anyway, good workout and an easy 3.5 mile cool-down

Ran down to the Trails Subdivision, then up over Nephi's Twist and back down the La Verkin Twist (trail).  Legs sore and hips sore today.  Probably heading to Salt Lake this afternoon and then Colorado tomorrow.  Might go to Seven Peaks this afternoon.

11 miles this morning in Colorado.  The 6500ft elevation took some getting used to, but overall a pretty good run, quite a few hills to climb.  Not sure if I'll be hitting 70 miles this week, but hopefully at least 60.  I have quite a bit of family in town, so I'll be spending a lot of time with them.
