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.

Speed work with my kids on the track this afternoon.  I had a two mile warm up and then we did 16 x 200m with 200m recovery.  All of mine were 34-33 with the last one at 30.  It was a great workout on a hot afternoon.  I am glad I took it easy on Saturday or I wouldn't have been able to do that workout and feel strong.   I got a 3 mile cool down, so 9 miles total.

Easy run down passed Artic Circle with the varsity kids.  We did a couple of hill repeats and headed back.  Frisbee got canceled because of the rain, but the rain was nice to run in.  5.5 miles.  My legs are a little sore from my last two runs but I feel good at the same time.

Evening run after my XC meet.  I ran into Alpine to the park and back.  I started slow and then turned it into a progression run.  I felt great and ended my run with a couple miles around 5:40 in the dark.  I finished and then added another mile to cool down.  Very good run with a 6:52 mile average over all.

I did an easy run with my kids and some barefoot strides this afternoon, 3.5 miles total.  When I got home I got something to eat real quick, waited an hour and went back out.  I was tired from yesterdays run and letting it go, so I didn't feel very good.  My legs were tired!  I did a Alpine hwy and Lone Peak loop and then added two more miles to make it 10.5 miles and 14 total.  I was glad to get out and even more glad to be done tonight.  7:49 average.

Easy run in the dark after I got home from our XC meet at Murray.  I saw Dave and talked to him but couldn't convince him to come with me tomorrow.  The run was slow and easy around East AF.

Long run by myself.  It was worth it to sleep in until 6:30 am and run in the light rather than get up at 4:30 am, drive 25 minutes, and run in the dark with someone.

I did the same run as on Labor Day but without a Garmin.  I did take a couple of GUs with me so I can start training with them.  I felt tired from a long week, but was glad to get this run done.  I got a drink at the Alpine park on the way up to Sliding Rock and on the way back and took one GU.  I took another GU with about 4.5 miles to go when I hit Cedar Hills park. The first 10 miles was 1:18:27 which isn't bad considering it is all up hill.  I wish that the next 10 miles was all downhill but since I head up toward AF canyon and up the big hill I turns out to have a lot of up.  Some of the tendons in my lateral right leg were very tight and hurting for the last 10 miles, so I stopped and stretched a little at the parks when I grabbed a drink and took a GU.  I made it back alright, and even through down a 6:00 last mile.  I iced the tendons when I got done and had stretched out.  2:27:08 for the run with the second half in 1:08:40.

My goal is to stay healthy for the next three weeks and hopefully still pull off a good marathon, so far so good.
