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 have been rehabbing a strained calf muscle for the last two weeks. Today I made it five miles with no pain.  I think I can slowly build up again.

6.2 solo and then a 10 minute jog with Myles.  Left calf is just fine. Right Achilles wasn't happy.

So hot and muggy this morning.  Continuing to rehab and build.  I will shoot for 5 days of running next week.

Goal for the week is all six days of running.  I tried out new racing shoes.  They are ASICS. They have the carbon plate.  There's definitely something to the new shoe technology.  I was knocking the pace down and feeling very efficient while doing it.  I'm not exactly in good shape right now. 7:36, 7:06, 6:55, 6:33, 6:30, 6:12, 6:07.
