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.

Unfortunately I tested positive for the coronavirus today, won't be running for a little bit. I have some symptoms. Pretty lethargic, and a bad cough. More hindering than debilitating.

Finally out of quarentine! I've heard about some people having lasting effects from the virus on their lungs, I'm nervous but also intrigued to see if I have any lasting effects. I went quite slow on this run, like a 9:30 pace. Just wanted to see how my body would react. Didn't feel anything abnormal and didn't feel hard. I'm going to move forward with an abundance of caution, just because I don't want to lungs to be messed up long term. I'm going to have to do some reasearch on how athletes bounce back after getting it. It could be there's nothing to worry about, but I just want to make sure haha.

Easy miles again. Not feeling any lingering effects which is good.

Started out slow, and picked it up a decent amount a mile and a half in. Felt pretty good!

To say the weather felt nice this morning would be a vast understatement. It was about 40 out, but it felt like 55. It was foggy as well. I like fog except for when I'm driving.

Drove up to Green Canyon for my run today. Unfortunately it was a lot icier than I thought it would be. It was very nice weather again, this time in the 50's, so I thought it would have been melted. I only biffed it once on the way down, which I'm considering an accomplishment. My feet started to hurt because of how hard the ice was, but whenever I was able to get off it they were fine.

Ran around south Logan today, explored a few neighborhoods that I hadn't been to before. Got some good hills in. Felt pretty good today.

Good run today. Felt really good, nothing was sore or aching. Went up the the mouth of the canyon then along the BST for a bit. Legs are probably going to be feeling the hills for a little bit.

Went up on Bonneville. Went by a few motorized bikes, which I had never seen on there before. The wind was at my back on the way out, which unfortunately I did not recogize until I turned back. Would have been nice to know so I could appreciate it while I had it.

Solid run once I got back up to Logan. Ran to, and then up Logan Canyon for a bit. There was a trial that I went on for a bit, and it was a lot shorter than I thought it was. Took a few detours on the way home to get the mileage I wanted.
