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.

Out to Mini Gu Corner Via canal road and then back to the house the same way. ITBand was supper sore on the way out but then loosened up on the inward half to home, I just drug it along and got her done. Avergae Pace was still slow at 9:00 with a totla time 55:11, I finished up with some upper body weight training and some push-ups. It was a good start to the week.

See you tomorrow.
