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.

Mile wu, drills, and then a 5ish mile loop. Technically it was high recovery today, but my legs weren't feeling too wonderful today so I decided to take a few miles off and bike for a bit instead. 

Saucony Kinvara 7 Miles: 6.00

Ran a long ways, very slowly today. High recovery run at 8:50ap (haha am i a turtle or what?). Did a long out and back up Sundance and into Apline a bit. Felt okay but my legs felt pretty lethargic.

Let's just all take a moment to appreciate that it will be fall soon, and then these miserable days of bone-melting runs will finally be OVER... Anyway today we ran the "kicker" and truth-be-told I didn't exactly "kick it" today. I sure tried hard, but I think the kicker was the one doing the kicking today. Legs just felt dead and breathing wasn't so good. So you tell me... what happened?! Ugh. Better luck (and stamina) to myself next time i guess. (my time was a 10:11 - yuck yuck yuck - ) After, to my eternal dismay, we had high mileage to finish, so that's what I did cuz I'm a champ. Did 4 miles out-and-back towards Smith's with some of the girls the finished my last two miles on the grass barefoot. I definitely was D-O-N-E by the end and I really lived by my motto to "stay thirsty" because I think after I drank like 5 gallons (give or take hah) of water.

***Also sidenote if any of my fans want to support my squad come watch my pal Lil Nug (aka Carolyn) kill it in the hoco pageant on Thursday night (she is doing the Napolean Dynamite dance which will be EPIC!)
