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.

5 easy miles, pavement and dirt.  I planned on running 10 miles today, but the AQI was bad (174) from all the field burning during this dry season that I wore a mask and ran just 5.  It's miserable wearing a mask that actually blocks harmful particles.

12 miles easy, pavement and dirt.  Air quality was bad, so I wore a mask for the entire run, which made it more difficult--like running at high altitude.  Later: hamstring, glute and hip flexor exercises with ankle weights; calf raises; lying-on-side leg lifts; pushups, pullups and planks.
