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.

Went out for a run this afternoon after taking a few days off. It wasn't pretty.The first 4 miles were uphill. My calves got so tight that my left foot fell asleep while I was running. I can honestly say that's never happened before. I guess it's going to take a few weeks of putting in some miles to get back into the swing of things.

Some easy miles this morning. Was going to go out from 7 more tonight but forgot about a meeting that went from 6-9 p.m. Should have gone out before we left because after we got home I was ready for bed.

8.5 miles in the a.m.

8.5 miles in the evening

I know it sounds like a lot at this point but broken up into two runs 10 hours apart takes the sting out of it.

I'm starting to feel a lot better. My run on Monday felt like maybe a 3 out of 10 and I'd say todays runs were a 7 and a 8.5 respectively.

My only issue is a sore ankle that I rolled on Mondays run. I need to ice it and it should be good to go.

I had this up once and then deleted it by mistake.

An easy 5 mile morning run.

6.3 miles with the club tonight.

Ran a little harder the last few miles coming back with Holt. Somewhere around 5:40 pace. Felt good to push it a little.

Good game last night between the Mets and Cards- Can I get a what, what- or even a amen to the catch that Chaves made at the wall to end the inning. I wanted the Mets to win but that catch will be a highlight for a long time. So anyways there you have it. Hopefully this will be my last post today.

7 miles in the morning

5 miles in the evening

Both runs were easy. When I finished the five miler tonight I was trashed. I think I didn't eat enough today- or something...

Meet up with the club early this morning. We went up to the T bone trail and then over to the water tank, down the power line trail and into Middleton, then back on Skyline Dr.

I felt ok then just after about 12 miles I was ready to be done. From there in I just putted along. I'm ready to replace all my running shoes.
