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.
Easy 4 miles around Butterfield Park. 33:30. Went to the Doc today and he figures that I have torn my medial meniscus, Pretty discouraging! I am still going to run St. George this year and then I will have evaluate where I am at.
Greg stayed over last night and we got up early to run. The plan was to run up the canyon with me and tag team with Chris and he would run down with me. Greg and I did the first mile together at 8:54 and the 2nd in 7:55 then I lost him until the Cove and he did the 4th with me and then fell off. He has been feeling tired and sick, so I kept pluggimg along. I actually felt ok today and the knee pain was minimal most of the time. I made it up the canyon and turned around at 1:19:00 and felt decent coming down. Chris ran from the mouth down to my house and we averaged 6:35 according to his watch. My total time was 2:24:41, my best in a couple of years as far as I can tell. I felt ok most of the time and did well with drinks and salt stick capsules. Had 8 miles under 6:40 with a 5:57 last mile. Greg and Chris were great to join me and help me out today and I appreciated the company. 7:14 ave for the run.
