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.

Down in St George. Massively sore after the trail running initiation on Saturday. Decided to bag the run and go for a 5 mile walk instead. I'll probably get some swimming in later as well.

Desert trail run/hike in the early morning trying to beat the heat in St George. Attempted the 3rd ravine loop which is supposed to return via the 2nd ravine but somehow I ended up coming down the 1st ravine which doesn't have much of a trail. Strangely enough I ran into a highschool classmate and her husband coming up the ravine while I was going down.

Also as payback for me not biffing it during the Saturday run the running gods decided I should wipe out today. Wasn't even doing anything hard just walking along the trail and I'm suddenly rolling along the ground. Other than a few scrapes and scuffs I seem to be fine. Actually felt pretty good for most of the run/hike.

Still in St George. Tried a regular old 5-mile road run. Took it nice & easy as I baby my aches and pains from Saturday and from my tumble yesterday. Felt pretty good I think the swimming helps a lot to quicken recovery.

Had planned for a running rest day today and went for a 2 mile walk in the morning with plans for 30 min XT at the gym later. But it looked more appealing to go outside in the sun than be stuck in a stuffy gym and my legs felt pretty fresh so I ended up doing a 3.5 mile run just before lunch.

Morning run with the gang. Seem to be pretty much recovered from the trail run leg thrashing from last week.
