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.

rest day

Have some pain at my left kneecap which came after tempo-run last friday. After the 5 k-race last weekend, I ran 3 days easy and took a day off, then that tempo-run. The only reason I can imagine despite I am old (-: is that I ran parts of the race and the tempo-run downhill. Knee hurts only when I bend the knee, but it hurted every step of the long run yesterday. Don´t think it will be a big thing, but I will have to respect it this week.

Think this is what I am affected by: http://fastrunningblog.com/forum/index.php/topic,1571.0.html

I don´t really know what I did wrong. It seems like everytime I am going beyond 50 miles/week and trying to implement tempo (carefully), my body reacts with inflammation: last year Achilles tendon, this time kneecap. I believe that I don´t have a good balance between mileage/speed. Last year I barely ran 1.250 miles for the year. Maybe it´s a bit too much to run >50 miles per week this year.

Right now, I am thinking about limiting miles to 45 miles/week and 160/month to stay injury free.

If there are any ideas/suggestions, I would appreciate!
