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.

Ran up the trail near my house and then turned back and took it to the park near my house where I did 2 laps and ran home. I worked on my spartan ability by doing the monkey bars and some pull ups in between the two laps at the park.

Had a shake and shower afterwards. Goal to get out 3 more times before next sunday seems good. We'll see how long the runs are, could be anything between a mile or two and the gully long run for the those.

Also did 3x10 of wide grip pull ups, chin ups, and side grip pull ups. Will do bench tomorrow, my biceps have really gone to crap since covid started.

Ran around the park and area north of that. Felt great, kept it pretty slow. Walked for a few minutes before and after.

Run up on wasatch and went up the mountain a bit. Watch died on the way back at 4.5 but we'll just say 5 for the day. Plus about half an hour of scrambling.
