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.

Total Distance

Midday - 7 with strides and drills

afternoon - ran to the rec, cross trained, stretched, ran back.

Legs were pretty tired. I was supposed to have my final workout before the Falcon Classic today, but I decided to try a dish called "mixing popcorn with hot sauce". I love hot food, but I probably put half a bottle of Red Hot's on this popcorn. It was quite the spicy dish, and my stomach was still wrecked today from it. So, either doing 4-5 x 800's tomorrow, or some sort of fartlik.
