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.

38 mile bike ride (2:05) followed by a 2.5 mile run (8:10 AP) in 100+ degrees and windy.  I didn't realize how hot it was until I started my run and soon into it felt like I was going to die.

2 mile lake swim (60 minutes)...another couple minutes faster!  Hopefully I can get that 2 mile swim time down around 55 minutes, then I should be able to do the 1.2 miles on race day in 30 which would be a nice start to the race.

 

Soccer practice in the evening. I played some with the kids. It was fun.

I really loved my swim this morning and was sad when it ended.

2 mile lake swim, 59 minutes-- getting faster!

Soccer practice tonight. Last night we had our first game, and even though my team was overmatched, they fought hard to a 4-4 draw.

40.4 mile bike ride with Blake this morning. Then I followed it up with  a 2.5 mile run. I guess I was still feeling good since my AP was 7:01. I definitely didn't feel like I was running that fast, but I'll take it.

13 miles TM 1% incline

First 10 at 8:00 pace, last 3 at 7:00 pace

Enjoyed watching college football, but I'm looking forward to cooler weather so I can start running outside on my long runs. It won't be long.
