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.

Went with Kimi over to base of Harry's Hill for some mile hile repeats. Ended up going up Harry's 3 times. Glad to feel like the uphill is getting easier for me. Also planning some hiking for later today.

Nice early morning 7 miler in the dark. Legs feeling pretty good other than I can still always feel the tendon-bum-itis in the right leg when I stretch. But at least it's not bothering me when I run. But I'm still chicken to do any kinds of strides or abruptly speed up. But don't seem to be any worse for the wear pushing sub-7 pace on the downhill runs so I'll continue to do that and call that my speed-work/tempo running. Starting to get excited for SGM. I think my plan will be just to try and BQ (sub-3:25).

Dandy 21 mile run down Payson Canyon and into Salem. 16-17 miles of mostly smokin downhill then flatter from Payson to Salem. Stayed with the speedy trio of Ryan, Beth, and Ken for a little over 1/2 of the run and averaged just under 7 min pace for first 13 miles. Slowed down considerably over the last 7 miles and endup up with 7:28 ave pace. Overall feel pretty good about the run. Gotta love that downhill running!
