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.

My leg is not cooperating and I'm not sure if I will be able to continue training if it doesn't start getting better soon...

Later.

I decided to go and try out the legs and see where its at after a week off, so I was up at 5:30 and then out the door around 6:00. The goal was to try for 10 miles and then see from there, I ran out past Mini GU and then up to GU corner and then back to the house, I was feeling okay so I went out to the old barn on Canal road to add a few more. My legs were feeling pretty dead so is topped and got a drink and ate some cantaloupe and then went out foe a few more out past the stake center...  My leg was okay and it was not hurting much at all, I mean I can still feel it but it was pretty good... Time will tell on Monday when I try to run again or later today, that will tell me where I'm at and then I can go from there.  My average pace was slower than normal at 8:46 with a total time of 1:46:02, I had an 8 Minute mile in the middle so I am counting that as MP. I'm glad that I was able to run and I hope like crazy that I will be able to continue with my training.

See ya Monday.
