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.

AM - 6.3 miles before work, same route, colder out.  Afterward I dislocated my thumb while trying to push my running tights over my ankle.  Quickly popped out then back in and hurt like a mother.  Thought I broke it at first with the crunch sound and all.

AM - 6.4 miles easy before work, colder out so in full gear.  Rather be hot than cold.  Right adductor acts up sporatically, not sure what to do with it other than continue easy/slow running.  Turning the knee/leg inward and back or the running motion is the only time it bothers.

PM - Slow 2.8 miles during lunch on the treadmill.  Core work after.

AM - 11 miles easy.  Heart rate took longer than usual to pick up.  Once the pacemaker kicked in I felt fine.  I then slowed down my running pace, but my heart rate drifted down too much which wipes me out.  I had to walk and then force the pace once I started up again to bring the rate back up enough.  Some days the pacemaker just doesn't operate right without me forcing it to work.  Checkup with the Cardiologist next Monday.
