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--3.75 Harts(2x)/Mini-Costco Loop. Good running this morning. RHR--50. 

pm--3.5 Warm and cool, sanwiched around the dream mile. We had some cool things happen today that tell me our training has really paid dividends. But that only comes when kids are willing to work hard and work for each other. Also got to run w/ Jos. That's always a treat. 

I finished In Search of the Old Ones: Exploring the Anasazi World of the Southwest by David Roberts. The topic is fascinating and fairly localized, and Roberts' style is engaging. It was a real treat to read this on the bus as we travelled through Northern and Central Arizona over the weekend. Fortunately, we were able to stop by Montezuma Castle on the trip.

am--5.75 Barrel Roll in the traditional manner w/ Adam. Decent chat about plant-based living. RHR--50.

pm--5.75 Out-and-back to the Canyons. With a little downhill on the way back, I picked up the pace a bit. It felt good. Ran in some Hoka Cliftons tonight. I actually like the cushion, and they still encourage some get-up-and-go.

pm--8.5 Kidney Loop w/ Lava Cove extension w/ 4x 4-min. intervals at 6:00-6:15 pace w/ equal recovery. This was on the road, so there was some up and down during the intervals. By the time I hit the fourth, my legs were loving the turnover. RHR--57.
