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.

Pool stuff. Half hour at 57% jets then half hour at 73% jets for a push section. Brittany chatted with me for the second half so it actually went by reasonably quickly.

Did a speed workout of sorts in the pool. Warmed up, then did 4x6:00 pushes at various jet speeds w/4:00 active recovery. Around 75-80% on the pushes. Then cooled down for a bit. Total workout time was 60 minutes.

More pool jogging. Jets on 55-57% for an hour. Boredom. Talked to our trainer about talking to Doc tomorrow - he says not until next week since it's still way tender. So super frustrating.

Had to hurry in my pool time today, so I only got in a half hour with a 10 minute push at 30 minute effort.

Went over to the HPER and did 75 minutes of aqua jogging in the pool. I think I did about 50-55 laps. Boring, but not quite as bad as the stationary pool. Plus, it's chlorine isn't quite as nasty smelling as the HydroWorx pool's.
