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.

Nice run up and down Payson Canyon. Felt pretty good other than my black and blue big toe.

Went up to the Nebo marathon starting line with Dan and Ken bright and early. Plan was to run down to Peteetneet we were thinking that would be around 23 miles but actually ends up being 24. Dan had calf cramping problems by mile 12 or 13 and had to do lots of walking after that. I felt good for just shy of 20 miles but after stopping for a potty break my legs locked up and I was pretty useless the rest of the way and did lots of walking myself. Need to remember during the race NOT to stop late in the race for anything or it could get pretty ugly.

Loafer run or rather a jog/walk for me. Still pretty sore after Saturday downhill run.

Ran from Peteetneet up to just above cattle guard then met up with rest of the group and ran to Salem Chevron. Besides my quads still being a little sore and tired I felt pretty good.

Didn't feel so good that last 5 or 6 miles, legs still tired from the week before I think. Sure takes forever to recover for us old dudes. Guess I should just be happy I'm doing better than Dan who hasn't been able to even run since Saturday with his messed up calf.

My ave pace says these were easy miles, but with the St George heat and not very good sleep they felt anything but easy. Happy to be in taper mode now.

Very easy jog/walk. Hadn't originally planned on doing anything but since I woke up at 5:30 and felt pretty rested I headed out the door. Hoping I have more energy tomorrow than I've had in recent days for my final Payson downhill tuneup run.

Final tuneup run down Payson. Felt pretty good and my fastest time of the year and seemed to have survived without hurting myself.

Very sluggish. Lot of excitement lately and not always good sleeping and eating habits so hopefully the rest of the week I can work harder to prepare properly for Saturday race.
