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.

8 miles - Morning jog on the mill followed by pull-ups until tired.  Really need to get outside, but so cold and dark.  Tough to do.

4 miles - Progression run on mill during lunch followed by calf raises and leg raises.

This year will be the lowest mileage total I've had in nine years. What happened?! A job promotion with more responsibility and daddy duty basics are a few reasons, but a big one is the competitive fire is down to a smolder and not sure how to get it back. Time to reflect.

Merry Christmas!
