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 out past the stake center again this morning, my leg felt pretty good so that was a pleasant surprise. My average pace was at 8:53 with a total time of 36:36, after the run I jumped on the Elliptical for 20 minutes at a moderate pace, felt pretty good. I'm out of shape no doubt because I'm pretty beat after just running 4 miles but hopefully it will come back quick, I'm glad that I got out of SGM its sad for sure but I really had no other choice.

See ya tomorrow.

Morning run out past the old barn and out towards Payson, felt okay. Leg wasn't much of a bother but not 100 percent either, my average pace was 8:52 with a total time of 36:04. After the run I jumped on the elliptical for 20 minutes at a moderate pace with resistance up to 10 at 2 minutes 30 second intervals. I'm glad that I was bale to get some running in today, it always feels good. I'm pretty tired after 4 miles so that's about all I can run at this point, that's a little discouraging at times but I must have lost a lot of fitness but I know it will come back if I can stay consistent.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past the stake center via canal road and then came back to the house the same way, it was not a good run. My legs were so dead and my pace was way slow, but I was still able to out and that's all I'm hoping for anymore. I think my legs were pretty tired because of the harder workout on the elliptical and then I did a couple of sets of leg raises. I can't believe how out of shape I have gotten just over the last month...  Oh well, I just have to hope that the fitness will come back. My average pace was way slow at 9:30 and my total time was 38:43, no elliptical today.

See ya tomorrow.
