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.

Long run w/ 6 x 400 meter hill with run back to the bottom after each.  Later: hamstring, glute, hip flexor, side leg raises, and calf raises with ankle weights.  Also, I've been doing one set of push-ups, planks and pull-ups after each run.  I was doing four sets once a week, but this will be less tedious, and it will give me at least 5-6 sets over the course of a week rather than 4.
