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.

Easy pacing of around 8:30-9:00 minute miles.  Front right adductor tight because I was doing focused contractions of the muscle all day yesterday.  Beastly hot once again.  Really would like to see some lower temps and humidity.  Makes running difficult.

Ran half of the distance on the TM to beat the heat.  Did some 1 min. hill repeats.  I think the focused adductor contractions are making a big difference to healing the injury.  Ab workout afterward.

No issues, just kind of tired overall.  Wish the high heat would end!!  Right front leg felt was a bit tight, but not really hurting.  Hopefully everything holds together as I bump up my weekly miles.  Some light weight training afterward.

Another tough day due to the heat.  Ran half the miles indoors and still sweated like a pig!  This summer has been the hardest test on the body's cooling system.

Went out around 10am for a long run.  Started out feeling good.  Then tired quickly from the effects of the heat.  Can't remember much about this run other than I was drinking a lot of water and taking in electrolytes.  Just couldn't get my mojo back during the second half.  With the continued heat I'll have to get these done earlier in the day.
