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.

See you tomorrow.

Salem Days 5K route and extended a little bit, pace was so slow but I was glad I was able to get 2 days of running in a row. Pains in all the familar places. Average pace was slower than yesterday but that was because I was hurting more today, 9:50 with a total time of 45:04. I finished up with some upper body weights and some push-ups.

See you tomorrow.

Out to the T and back via canal road, on the last few I started to try and open up my stride and it seemed to lessen the pain in my Butt and down my leg... So I will try to run some strides each run and see if it will improve my form. I think I have over compensated and my messed up form is contributing to some of thise current issues. My average pace was still way slower at 9:39 with a total time of 40:30, I finished up with some lower body weights.

See you tomorrow.

Out to Mini Gu Corner and back via canal rod, Things started to loosen up on this one for a change. ITBand was lots better and the soreness in my right butt muscle was way tolerable, which was a pleasant surprise. My average pace was a bit better at 8:45 with a total time of 53:50, I finished up with some upper body weights and some push-ups. It was a good end to the week.

See you Monday.
