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.

Basketball this morning. 2 miles this evening from the gym to the golf course and back. Did the first mile in 9:00. This is the fastest mile I've ran since ankle surgery. After the run I did 12 machines 2 x 12 reps, then came home and did a two mile walk with Sunny.

1 hour on the exercise bike with Bill. After the run and workout yesterday I was feeling a little sore and tired so the bike was the better option today.

I did the 1 mile from the gym to hole #13 at Sky Mountain to see where my fitness is run.  Two weeks ago I ran 9:00, today I did 8:50 so a little progress. Did 1 mile easy back to the gym and then 2 mile walk later this evening.  Also did 9 machines 2 x 12 at the gym.

Sunny and I did the Overlook Trail Loop. It was quite the workout, just at 2 hours for the 6 mile loop. Pretty warm outside 93, and we didn't take any water.
