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.

Another tough day. My legs still felt heavy and it was in the 90's already when I took off this morning. I decided to keep it to 6 miles. It's a good thing, because at the end of the last mile, my foot really tightened up. I am rolling it with the frozen bottle as I post this, but I don't like how it feels.

Total: 6 very slow miles

My foot did not improve with a good night's rest. It is still pretty sore today. I ice rolled it as forcefully as pain would allow this morning and that helped some. I lifted at the gym, heavey upper and light lower body. Then I stuck with some elliptical work so I wouldn't put any more stress on the PF tendon. I'm a little bummed today about the state of my foot. I'm hoping a few days off from running will help.

I took yesterday off to allow the foot to recover some.  Today was supposed to be one of my 3 running days for the week, but I decided to give the foot a break and did the stairs for 30 minutes instead followed by 20 minutes ellipical.  I think I may stay with the stairs and elliptical for a bit before I try running again.  I'll just wait and see how it is feeling.
