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.

I attempted a 3 mile run this evening, did the La Verkin Loop.  I wore a brace on the ankle, however I was still in a lot of pain and felt like my stride was way off the entire time. I would like to get going again, but still not sure if the ankle is ready or not.

Ran 5 miles over to the Hurricane City Park and then back home.  I didn't wear the ankle brace and probably should have. Pace was ok, until the last mile when I got tired.

Did the La Verkin Loop, not a lot of time tonight.  I avg 7:54, so a little faster than last week.  The ankle felt pretty good, even though I tweaked it again right at the start of my run.

20 minutes on the bike

Ran out to Paul's house and then back home.  Going out was 24:58 and coming back was 23:40.  My ankle is still really bothering me, which is frustrating because it has been over a month now since I injured it.
