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.

Morning 8 miler. Did some faster stuff but nothing structured (can you say 'fartlek'?!). Did a few strides, fast on the downhills, power up the hills, and had a few miles in the middle that ended up with pace in the MP range.

Easy 7 miler in the morning. I wasn't loving the warmer more humid conditions. Later went to the gym for 30 min XT + core.

First run of the summer down Payson canyon. We had a pretty good sized group and I enjoyed the run it's been a long time since we've done this. Ran mostly with Alan and Roman. Tried to take it pretty easy, this can be a risky run if you're not careful.

Had a good size group of runners turn out this morning, always helps to make the long runs go better. My legs especially quads are still beat up from the Payson canyon run so I kept the pace nice & easy. Even so the last couple of miles were kind of a death march. Very glad to be done. Now our family gets to go clean the church.
