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.

AM: 2.5 mile warm-up on the treadmill and then weights. Lifted pretty hard and since it's been a week I will, no doubt, be sore tomorrow.

PM: Went to the gym this evening to rack up a few more easy miles while watching the Broncos vs. Steelers. I have been a skeptic as is my way, but I am now completely convinced that Jesus is directing the passing arm of Tim Tebow. Except when he clearly isn't and Tebow looks like a bad high school quarterback. But Rothlesberger's a twice acquitted rapist right? I guess if I were Jesus I'd side with Tebow too.

We'll see what happens next week when Tebow once again goes up against God's nephew- Tom Brady.

Treadmill mile repeats. 4 x 1 mile with a quarter mile jog recovery plus a quarter in 75 seconds at the end. 1.5% incline.

1.75 mile warm-up

4 X 1 mile in 6:00, 5:56, 5:45, 5:39

1 X 1/4 mile in 75 seconds

1.5 mile cool down

 I'm very happy with this. Even the 5:39 felt comfortable.

AM: Nice morning run. Ten miles in 1:18. I ran longer than I really had time for and now I'm behind schedule and now I'll probably be late for work. This may cause the Earth to spin off its' axis.

Great run this morning with a big group of FRB folks. We met at 8 AM at Tanner Park and did a fairly hard run through Salt Lake, Holliday, Cottonwood Heights and back home down Wasatch Blvd. Their were some people in the group who would have to plead guilty in a court of law to being pace pushers on what was supposed to be a fairly leisurely Saturday longish run. And it wasn't Jake or Fritz - the two fastest guys in the group.

Ended up doing 16 miles in 1:52 with a few miles considerably faster and uphill. Jogged two easy miles back home afterwards.
