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.

I readjusted my aerobars to a mor comfortable position which I loved this morning and it made me a bit faster than normal, but now I've somehow pinched my gear shifting cable and I can't shift to all my gears.  Guess I'll have to take the bike in and get professional help.  Anyways, I rode 20 miles with 1300 feet vert.

Then I ran 3 miles on the TM.  My calf still feels 100% and my hammy felt better today than it has since I strained it, I'd say 90%!!!!

My nightly PT work is starting to pay off.  I'll get some more done tonight.

1 hour swimming nice and steady followed by 3 mile TM run. Feeling better than I have in months! I hope it stays that way.

I'll get my PT work done tonight watching the final wild card game. Hopefully it's a good one.
