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.

Due to my injury I just did a run and walk combo for 60 min on the treadmill this morning before church.  During the walking portions I cranked the incline to 15 and walked 4.1 mph.  Good workout.

Same thing as yesterday, but had to walk more often.  Once again put the incline at 15 and walked 4.2 mph (more like hiking).  Then did some strength training.

Knee was tender today so I didn't venture far.  Missed a really good day for a longer run.  A little breeze and cloud cover.

Right knee still aches off and on so I completed the miles run & walk style.  Then back home to hang out with the kids and go to the park.  Great weather day.
