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 Big Blue mailbox route this morning, the first couple of miles I was a little clunky but then I was able to get into a pretty good rhythm for the rest of the run. My average pace was 8:36 with a total time of 57:24, I had a few of the miles in the sub 8:20 range which was nice and they weren't to labored either.

See ya tomorrow.

Just a little run out past the stake center to test my achilles tendon, it loosened up after a few miles but I am not running down Payson Canyon with the group tomorrow. I don't want to chance it. So I will run my regular route and just stay on the flat. My average pace today was 8:37 with a total time of 39:38.

See ya tomorrow.

I did not have a very good run this morning... My legs were just did from the get go and my pace got slower with each mile. I'll just chalk it up to one of those day.

See ya Monday
