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.

am--11.25 I woke up w/ a headache and wasn't sure how the running part of the day would go. But things subsided and I got out for a run. I headed out towards Ivins on Santa Clara Dr. and then up into Ivins by Lava Ridge. Once I hit Ivins I tried to move things to a moderate pace into Dixie Downs and back home. Overall, things felt pretty good. We'll see how many of these double-digit singles I can put together over the break.

am--10 Met up w/ Tom and went to partially participate in the Running Center Barrel Roll run. We started a bit earlier to hit Sidewinder as well, so the RC group was all over the place. After, the fam went to SC elementary where I ran a few grass loops.

pm--11.5 I really didn't feel like running all day and was in a bummer mood most of the day. One of the more productive things I did was sort through all the old RWs and dogear each of Ed Eyestone's articles. This came in handy later when I finally got my butt out the door to run. 

I went over to Mathis Park, intending on running a few laps around the grass and then heading home. But the grass was saturated, and, after I was warmed up a bit, I was feeling super. So I used some of the knowledge I gained from Mr. Eyestone and hit a timed fartlek--10, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 w/ equal recovery jog in between. I started at 7:30 pace and knocked it down to under 6:15 for the last one. The knock down was roughly :15 per bout. The workout felt great. There's nothing like the mood swing that a good run can bring.

am--7 Didn't have a GPS on this baby, but it has to be close to 7. Went w/ Tom, Perk, and the long hairs from the Chuckwalla trailhead to Scout Cave and back. There was some decent climbing and some fast-paced stuff on the way back. The quality today more than made up for the lack of quantity.
