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.

I ran the Payson Park loop today, out and back... My legs were dead again from the get go!, I can't understand this other than I think I might be running to fast on every run and then not getting enough recovery runs in at an actual  recovery pace! So I took it really easy today, at least as easy as I could stand it! My average pace was 8:46 with total time being at 1:03:05, I had no time to roll my leg and hip and no time to do my strength training so I will have to do that tonight. It seems that I have been on the road lately more than usual and it has hurt my training just a little, but that's okay...

That's about it, back to work;-(

Mini Gu corner route today, and legs are still feeling the same, wiped out!!! Took it real east again today with pace being 9:06 average for the first 5 miles and then I ran 2 miles with Ethan at a real slow pace to finish up. Now I am getting ready to head to UBBA baseball tournament, I will be helping out and coaching Ethan's team so that should be interesting;-) Cade will be playing in Pony league UBBA in Payson so I will be watching him this morning and then heading to Ethan's game in Spanish Fork right after that, should be a nice busy day!

Please pray for my darn legs to get better!!!

Got a go, see ya tomorrow.

No running today yet, my body was screaming rest and my legs were screaming the same thing so I gave in! I will try and get something in later today, but if I don't then that's okay too...;-) I have more Baseball games today and then tomorrow I have a company meeting followed by some more work stuff and maybe more baseball Games depending on how we do tonight, so I am a little busier than normal and I need a serious day off! My son Ethan and I are going fishing on Friday up to Strawberry Reservoir so that should be a good time, I can't wait!

See ya later.

No running again today, I went fishing with my son Ethan this  morning and we left way early and tomorrow may be a bust too cause I have to go and do some working hours for my dedicated hunter permit and we are leaving early, oh well with all my little injuries at least they are getting some nice rest! I might try and get in a run later on tomorrow, but I am not a fan of running in the heat so I will have to see on that...

Later on man!
