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.

Perfect rest day again: I felt a little cold and was very tired because of two not so great nights with my son being sick. I slept in on the couch watching the recorded Superbowl from last night...waking up 2 hours later, I am feeling much better already!

Not what I would call a great day: after a stressful work day, I hurried to the sports field to run while my son Paul played football. But half of the field was full of snow, I had a headache and my left knee hurted when I started to run. Enough reasons to cancel the planned cruise intervals and run easy...tomorrow will be a new day! :-/

3,5k warmup with 3 strides

10k-race: This race is on a hilly course in the woods. The course was dry because of sunny weather (42 degrees). It's more a cross-race than a flat 10k. I ran hard and tried to relax, it was a good start in the season and a good training for the upcoming races.

3k cool-down
