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.

Planned to run every day.  Failed.  Long run with Tee.  She's racing the Murray Days 5k.  I'm running it with Lily. No idea what pace.  I couldn't find my Garmin this morning

Very hot and sweaty run this morning.  Performing a lot this week.  Hopefully I can still get in some decent running.

Sore Achilles' tendon this morning.  "Band camp" and core after.  I have really let my strength go.  It's sad.

I really don't love running the morning after performing.  I'm so tired.  8.4 hot sweaty miles plus plank series for core.

Two miles solo.  Then I ran with the Taylorsville High team.  I ran with one of the girls.  It wasn't a fast run.

Not feeling great.  Coughed the entire run.  Should probably get a COVID test.

Still feel terrible.  Ran 20 minutes with Lily.  She got 2.5 miles in.  Then ran extra solo.
