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.

AM- 10.1 total (WU, 8x1000m w/2:30 active rest, CD). Woke up with the same achilles/hamstring pain I had yesterday and some more random tightness, this time on the outside of the same hamstring. I heated my hamstring and achilles in the training room and it seemed to help a little bit. Also, my hamstring doesn't really bother me when I run, mostly just when I walk or go downhill (aka when the knee is fully extended). Very minimal pain for the whole workout. I spiked up for the last few which probably wasn't the best idea and may have aggravated the achilles a little more. Still didn't bother me too much until about halfway through the cool down. Did some cupping on my hamstring after and E-Stim on the achilles.

PM- 3.72 easy on the treadmill. Both spots still seem pretty tight and hurt to roll out, but neither really bothered me during the run.

AM- First official day of team practice and first day of the semester! Easy 10.05 up Provo Canyon. Achilles pain was probably a 1/10 at the start by progressed to a 7/10 at the end of the run. Also had some weird hamstring tightness on the way down the canyon. No double today just to make sure I'm not overdoing it.
