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.

AM - 3 miles easy with Finn and Riley after a long 4 day weekend of travel with no running.  Was concerned about the hip abductor issue from last week, and figured with two days of driving for 12 hours on Thursday and Sunday - and family reunion activities from morning until night the other days, it was going to be hard to get any running in anyway - so I figured I may benefit from some rest on the legs.  Not sure it helped.

 

PM - 4 miles at lunchtime.  It is weird - the hip feels fine - (maybe a twinge or two but only slight) when I am running.  So I am not aware of causing any injury or insult to it during the activity.  I am just stiff and sore/tight after being sedentary for  period of time afterwards.
