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.

LOTOJA

175 mile bike.  I bailed 20 miles before the end because I felt like crap and I wanted to watch the BYU Utah football game.  

Go Cougs!!!!

After a week of recovery from LOTOJA, I figured I was good to go out for a run this morning. I had some mild tenderness behind my left knee that I figured was a bit of tendonitis.  I started running very slowly after some active stretching warmup.  It hurt a bit but I kept going, then right at the 1 mile mark a super sharp pain hit behind my knee.  I stopped and hobbled home, not sure exactly what happened.  Looks like I won't be running for a while though.  It's going to make it hard to pepare for Big Bear Marathon in 8 weeks.

I still can't walk quite right, so I hopped on the bike trainer for a spin for about 50 minutes.  It's funny that biking caused the initial problem, but biking didn't seem to hurt it.  It's going to be at least a full week from now before I may be able to run.  Big Bear may become a training run.

Pain behind knee slightly better.  Still just did 50 minutes on bike trainer.  I'm hoping to try out jumping rope soon.

I walked a few miles on the TM.  Pain is improving, but still a long way from running.
