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 out to Toquerville City Office this morning.  4 miles out in 33:08 came back in 31:00.  Had some stomach issues last night and this morning.

Did the La Verkin Loop tonight at 9:30 after mowing for an hour. I felt really good on the run for some strange reason.

Tempo Tuesday-  Picked up Billy Boy and headed over to Clyde's.  We had a big group this morning, Steve, Logan, Dave, James, Bill, and Clyde. 

3 mile warm-up

6 Miles Tinman Tempo Pace

I figured I would slow the pace a little this week, with hopes of being able to do 6 miles of tempo, rather than the 4 I did last week.  Last week I averaged 6:10, but was done by mile 4.  Today I was hoping to run closer to 6:20 pace, but I never really got settled into that pace.

1-6:21 Felt good at the beginning didn't start out too fast

2-6:27 Another good mile

3-6:27 (19:16- :16 off pace) Felt just like mile 3, so not surprised the pace was the same.

4-6:38 Struggled some here, wanted to stop again after this mile, but kept going

5-7:15 I did pretty good running up the hill after the bridge which I was proud of, did walk for a bit once I reached the top

6-6:42 Stopped and hit a few sprinklers on this last mile, but finished pretty strong still.

39:52 (6:39)

2.5 miles cool down.  I didn't feel very good on the cool-down

Another .5 at home to make it 12 for the morning.

Did 6 miles out past Hurricane Intermediate.  Ran out on the road going toward Sand Hollow.  Run was around 7:50 pace.

Came home and did the La Verkin Loop with Sunny.  Still hot and kind of slow going.

No run today.  I got up early and went and rented a trencher. Spent most of the getting beat up by the big thing but was able to get most of the trenching done.

Went to the river for a few hours with Sunny and the boys and Steve and Jennifer.

I felt pretty sore after trenching all day yesterday and a late night seeing Jordan off to the National Scout Jamboree at 2 in the morning.  I got up and only did 3 easy miles.

This week had started out really good, but then Friday and Saturday came along and the hard physical labor took a tole on the body and I wasn't able to meet my running goals for the week.

I should have tried harder to go race up in Enterprise.
