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.

Recording all the miles for the week today.  Ran 9 times Mon-Sat.  I've been a lazy blogger, but think it's healthy to check out sometimes and just run.  Took it easy all week and worked out some kinks via PT and massage.  Make progress, but still a bit sore.  Would like to work up to higher miles again, but not keeping a firm schedule.  Besides I'm now in the 40+ league.  We'll see what next week brings.

Total miles for the week.  Longest run was 15.25 miles.  All running was done at an slow to easy pace.  Having some issues with my right leg so started to incorporate lower body weight training 3-4 times a week.  Nothing serious lifting wise.  Lighter weight and long sets of 3-4 exercises.  After one week it's making a difference, but legs were definitely more tired than usual by Saturday.

Total miles for the week.  Longest run was 15 miles.  All running was done at an slow to easy pace.  Issues with my right leg have already dissapated since I started lower body weight training 3 times a week.  I'm feeling stronger and faster as well.  I'll try to bump up miles again next week.
