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 down Payson Canyon. Felt good so I pushed a little harder and went a little longer than last week. Hopefully it was a good choice.

Rest day. Walked a couple miles in the morning and hit the gym in the afternoon for 30 min XT + core. Legs feel about the same as last week after the canyon run just a little sore in the quads but no big deal.

Six in the morning. Warm and very muggy I had flashbacks of last year running in Florida and Georgia. Last mile or so was tough.

Tried something different today. Went with Tyler S and a few others up near Payson Lakes and ran/hiked up to trail to the top of Loafer Mtn and back down. Super hard in places but the cool temps, wild flowers, mountain goat encounter, and views at the end made it worth it. I marked the 12 miles as easy but they were anything but. Took us 4 hours and felt like a 20 miler. Somehow managed NOT to face-plant on the way back down but I'm thinking I'll be might sore in some new places tomorrow.
