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.

6 with Cole.  One more solo.  Tired.  Late nights and early mornings don't mix.

Four days in a row?  Watch out now!  Solo run. 40 degrees felt nice.  I told a friend that I would pace him to a sub-20 minute 5k at the end of June.  So, I had better get somewhat fit.

Easy run with Cole.  He's doing a two mile time trial tomorrow.  
 I was planning on a 10-12 miler tomorrow.  However, I am getting my second COVID shot today, so it's dependent on how my body reacts.  But, 5 straight days of running is a decent start for the month.

I was so sick from the Moderna shot on Saturday, which I expected.  So, no run.  Six with Cole today.  He ran a 10:31 two mile time trial with his dad on Saturday.  That is a nine second PR.  I think he has 10:20 or better in him.  He was running in a pretty fierce wind and had a nasty cold.  It's fun to see him improve.  We have slowly built his training up.  He's only doing 40 a week.  A tempo, a speed, and an 8 mile long run.  He hits high school next year.  I can't wait to see how he does.

Really cold run with Tee, Devra and May 6.2 miles

2 more miles. I ran from voice lessons to the dealership where my van was being serviced.  Figured it was faster than Uber.

Solo morning run.  It wasn't windy, so it was pretty pleasant.

I hate changing times.  Now it's pitch black in the morning again. 6 with Cole.  A little extra alone.  7:06 average.  Cole ran a 4:52 mile on Saturday. He was sore today.

Eight miles with 10 x 1 minute pushes.  I should probably start incorporating some speed work back into my running.

6 with Cole.  The rest solo.  Felt horrible the first half of the run.  Better by the end.
