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.

Slept in this morning and didn't get out until close to 8am.  Nice to feel a bit of fall coolness in the air.  Quite the nice morning especially compared to Saturday's crazy weather run.  But I'm sure glad we got in the 20 then and didn't have to do it today.

Ran about 2.5 with Kimi and the rest solo.  My Garmin finally died in the storm Saturday, I've run thousands of miles with this watch and it's served me well but now it's time to move on.  Just barely ordered me a sparkly brand-spankin new 310XT!

Well since I got into SGM at the last minute it seemed like a good idea to do some downhill running. Joined Kim and the other regulars and ran down Payson canyon in the early morning hours. Nice morning, a bit nippy but great for running, clear skies and a bright moon to light the way. Played it safe and only ran 8 to Beercan, at the moment it seems my legs and achilles handled everything just fine. Hooray!

Later to the gym for 30 min XT + core.

Eight mile relaxing run in the very early morning since I had to be at work early today. Feeling the love of the Payson canyon downhill run a bit in my quads and shins, but nothing at the moment to signal any kind of injury.  

Later at the gym did 30 min XT + core.

Still going watch free waiting for my new 310XT to arrive but I didn't mind.  I think it's good to run 'naked' every now and again.

Spanish Fork 1/2 marathon today.  Kim was heavily involved with the volunteer efforts and I was marginally involved.  Wasn't actually signed up for the race but I went out with the 1/2 marathon bunch and enjoyed a laid back run along the course.  Helped pace a few runners along the way.  Ave pace in the 8:10-8:15 range.
