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.

Felt a little more centered today.  Still lots going on in my life, but getting out for a run helped me feel better.

Achilles strain still bugging me after a few days off. Starting back at ground zero to hopefully rehabilitate it.  20 minutes easy. Didn't feel horrible.  3x 15 eccentric calf raises.   Two dance/strength videos.  Time to get going on core/strength stuff again

25 minute run.  No worse than yesterday.  Short core workout.  Two choreo videos.  Achilles hurt a bit during high kicks. I wonder if I am the only one on the blog that dances for cross training?  I'm getting lots better, too!

Cole needed a running buddy today, so I ended up going longer than planned.  It was a touch hard on my Achilles, but it seemed to hold up. 3 x15 eccentric calf raises.  2 x 45 seconds step ups/walking lunges/tricep dips/push-ups.

Went a bit longer today.  Met Tee, Becca, Aimee, and Devra.  Still trying to build my sore tendon back.  It hung in there, but I may feel it tomorrow.

Early morning mileage with Cole.  He is doing the school musical. Balancing running and the show is going to be tough.  So, we will probably have several early morning runs.

3.5 with Tee, then picked up Cole for 5.3 more.  The headwind sucked.

2 solo miles. 8 with Cole.  Achilles hung in there but got sore after 7.  2 hours of dance rehearsal this afternoon.  Glad to have a double digit run.
