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.

Feel much better but leg was wonky today. Did a progressive/pullback, moving up to 7 mph, down to 6.6, then up to 7.3 before finishing at 6.9. It helps to take a little pressure off the leg from time to time.

Realfit class. Ran 1.26 miles in 10 minutes, then a short warmdown. Plus some upper body stuff. Yikes!

Part of Realfit. Had 2:00 at 85%, 2:00 down to 70% HR. Got it up to 102% based on age, so will need to tweak the settings! Used it as a good opportunity to run some hard quarters, reached 6:58 pace on the last one, my first time sub-7 on the mill since the vertigo hit.

Progressive, went up to 7.2 then back down again as I'd tried on Monday. Works well for the leg, so I was able to slog on a little farther than before. My right heel is sore now, will have to monitor. These Kayanos are still holding up well, but their mileage/age may make me switch to the Dynamis soon.
