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 up over 600 North Trail, then cut down through the new sub division came out by Ernestos, then picked up pace to the gas station to make a pit stop, came back to La Verkin and added .5 miles down past Beechers.  Still have a cough, and hamstrings and hip flexors a little tight.

Easy 2 miles this morning up 300 West to the fire hydrant and back. Right hip is hurting some.

This afternoon I did 1 easy mile over to pick up my truck. I got the engine replaced, so it should run good for a few more years. After a nap this afternoon, I ran 5 miles on the treadmill, blah, blah at least the major league baseball all-star game was on to pass the time. After five miles I decided to go outside, it had cooled down some. I was only going to do an easy 2 miles up to the fire hydrant again, but decided instead to push the pace and run up to the substation and back in Hurricane. The two miles over I tried to push the pace, averaged 7:22 mostly uphill, coming back I average 6:13 and felt pretty good. My hip is still pretty sore, so I need to keep that in check, not to get too injured.

I decided to take yesterday off and see if it would help my hip feel any better.  I'm also interested to see if my cough is being caused by running.  I've never really had coughing problems like I've had lately.  I'm not sure if it is something in the air or something that is exercise induced.  Anyway, I might also take another day off today, as we are traveling to Phoenix later this afternoon, and we'll be there through the weekend.
