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.

5.5 on the treadmill early this morning. I could not get out of bed yesterday. I am such a slacker! Felt good today, so I went a little more. I will get in a 6 this week.

crappy run today. Went outside at 4:00, and man, was it warm! I was dying of the heat and my legs were tired. Cut it short and walked a lot. Dave says it was still good that I got out, but I am glad it is over. Better luck to me next week

Felt really good today so I decided to run again this evening. 2 miles on the treadmill at 10:20 pace. Ran 8 miles total today, which is the farthest ever! Not all at once but still! Burned well over 1000 calories. NICE!

so, just as I am increasing my miles, I get a dumb injury (I guess you can call it that!) I am taking a WSI class so I can teach swimming lessons again this summer (I taught last summer but I wasn't certified) The class started yesterday afternoon and goes for 2 weeks. I took the class 11 years ago in high school, so I am the oldest in the class, but at least I am a good swimmer! Anyway, we swam laps yesterday and I totally jacked up the back/ side of my knee. It hurt really bad last night and this morning so I am not going to run today. Hopefully it will cooperate tonight at my class and i can run again tomorrow.I have been wintercresting it up all day. That 7 miler  yesterday and swimming for 2 hours did me in!

3 miles 31:10. The back of my knee is still hurting, so I just went 3 to work it out. dave thinks it is probably a knot and will get worked out in a few days. 3 seemed like nothing. Hopefully I can go longer tomorrow.
