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 decided to try a run today, I took yesterday off as my legs were still pretty stiff and sore from the Payson canyon downhill 20 miler on Saturday. I ran out to mini Gu Corner and they seem like they are recovering nicely and I felt pretty good so I'm glad I was smart and took yesterday off. My pace wasn't to bad either at 8:39 with a total time of 52:30, the last mile I did a MP mile at 7:58 which was a nice surprise on stiff tired legs. The plan is to stay consistent the rest of the month and keep hammering out the miles, I'm in the home stretch now and I want to finish strong.

See Tomorrow.

I ran out to Mini GU Corner again this morning, I ran a 3 mile warm up and then on the way back I did 9 Pick-ups and I tried to finish the last of each mile strong, each of the pick-ups were in the 7 minute range with a few in the 6:50 range so I was pushing it pretty good for me. The miles with the pick-ups went like this 7:44, 7:44, 7:43, I would have a recovery about the same as the repeat was sometimes a little less, I felt pretty good but the last couple miles I was getting a little tired. My average pace for the run was 8:13 with a total time of 49:54, it was a great run and a great workout.

See ya tomorrow.

I decided to run just a little 4 miler out past the old barn on Canal road towards Payson, I just tried to keep the pace steady and enjoy the morning. My average pace was 8:34 with a total time of 34:51, I just wanted to keep my legs loose so tomorrow I won't have to spend the first few miles trying to get them loose.

See ya tomorrow.
