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.

Nice long run this morn, did the usual route up over harrys into salem and back to home. I did see lots of runners out early. It was good to see little Bro. Simmons out this morn, I hope his injuries are on the way out so he can get into a good solid routine.

I did'nt get out until about noon, it was hot and a bit on the muggy side. But it was still a great run. I did a golf course loop today and down the river trail.

Another nice run around the golf course very warm and muggy again today. This is strange weather for a dessert enviorment. I also did 25 min on the bowflex and some crunches. My left calf is still a bit of a bother, will monitor it this week and see how things go.

Today is mine and my  eternal companions 32nd wedding aniversary, Time really does fly. I love you Wendy, your the nest.

Hot Vegas morning low 90's I'm guessing, I don't know how people survive this heat day in and day out. Oh it ended up being 110 today.

I did a little out and back, the left calf is still a bit on the bothersome side. Having a hard time getting this injury to go away. I did 25 min on the bowflex, upper body and some crunches. Time for some ice on the calf.

I took a week off to see if I could get contol of my left calf, give it a rest. I ran out to gu corner and back today to see how it would do. Did well for the most part, I will do some lite runs for the next few days and see how it holds up. My goal is to get back in full training mode on Monday of next week if things go well the next few days. I was ablet to do some time on the bowflex each day and work the upper body finish with some crunches.

Today I did and out and back, went easy to see how the leg would handle the run. It was a little stiff at the begining, but seemed to loosen up as I got into the run. I can't believe how much I have lost the last three weeks. My training has been very spotty as to the injury. I will put together a full week of training this next week and see how things progress. My goal is the following week to resume my regular training schedule. SGM is comomg very fast, were did the summer go?
