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.

AM- Forgot we were doing our workout this morning so I showed up at 6:15. The kids were doing a cv workout on the wet track. I jumped in with Macy and Laney, then Dalton, then with Coleman. I am glad we did the workout this morning. It was pretty nice. Cooled with girls. 4.85 miles 

PM- 20 in the muggy heat with the girls. Then 5 on my own and catching boys. 3 miles

Another slug fest. I always know when I am kind of out shape when my calves get super tight on any uphill longer than 10 feet. Ran out Navajo Road. Started with Coleman and Evan. Then they passed me on a long uphill stretch. Then the girls caught up with me so I ran with them until another steep uphill. I noticed Holt didn't keep coming up so I figured he turned around with the lower minute kids. Jason was with the girls. So I decided I would try to catch the upper level boys. I put in a good effort to stay up with them. They had great energy and were singing songs. Allen was trailing the crew so I kept one eye on him and tried keeping up with the others during tempos. Eventually I started to fade so I went back for Allen. I wasn't sure if he was going to reject me or let me run with him. He was feeling neasous and we just casually ran together and talked about music. 9.22 miles

Kids ran 6 3 minute intervals @ race pace. I did the warmup and parts of the workout with them. The top girls were averaging about 800 meters per interval so I ran the last 500 with them. Did one with Porter. Great to be back with the kids. 6.2 miles

Ran to Christensen Park to watch my niece play in a soccer match. Felt exhausted. If I'm feeling less tired later I might get out. Or I can just be content with the miles I'm building back up. 1.07 miles

Ran into Washington then on Parkway and down Green Springs. Tried pushing from behind to keep top 10 girls together. Some fell off and others stayed on. The 20 minute power run through Green Springs was refreshing. 4 striders towards the end. Extended minutes with Kennis and Adri. 9.04 miles (75 minutes)
