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.

Kim and I did our mid-week mini-long run. This is the first double-digit mileage weekday run and will likely be the farthest we go for a mini-long run during the SGM training cycle. Toward the end the horses were neighing so Kim told me to take off and I ran the last 1.25 in 7:18 so I'll count that as MP, even though it felt like 5KP and my HR was near its max by the end.

Ran 6 miles with Kim. Good hill workout running around the streets of SF, no not the fancy-schmancy hilly streets of SanFran, CA just the humble hilly streets of Spanish Fork, UT.Glad to be feeling great, legs/feet holding up well and also glad that Kim's ITB is behaving. Now off to Lagoon with the fam for the day, compliments of my fine employer.

Ran 4 in the early morning then later did 45 min various XT at the gym. As Friday is an optional run day and after a good hill workout yesterday and then all day at Lagoon, Kim opted (and her coached agreed) to take the day off running, so I was solo for the 4-miler.

Had planned on doing an easy, gentle 4-miler. Didn't feel like running in the bottoms so went a different 4 mile route that gave me stiff canyon winds in the face the first 2 miles. Ended up pushing the pace into the wind just so I could be done asap and enjoy the last 2 miles with the nice tailwind.

Wasn't paying much attention to the pace so I was surprised the last 2 miles ended up being in the 7-7:15 range. I would have guessed more like 7:45-8 but I guess that's what the wind giving you a nice push does for you. I was pleased the overall 7:43 pace felt pretty good.

Nice 13-miler with Kim in the early morn. Toward the end when we got to the base of Heartbreak hill we noticed the Speedy Spaniard 10K racers coming up from behind so we stopped for a while to cheer the runners. Looks like they had a good crowd. Nice cooler temps today so probably some good race times.
