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.

10 miles, pavement and dirt.  Legs felt tired and a bit sore.  Used the pollution mask.  The Reebok Foatride Run 2.0 has reached its limit at 215 miles--not enough cushion, especially on pavement.  I was hoping to get it to at least 300 miles, but it's no good anymore.

5 easy miles, mostly pavement.  AQI 190, so I wore the pollution mask.

11 miles, pavement and dirt.  From home, up past the bridge above Thaphon Dam and back.  It was 80 degrees to start, and 84 with a "feels like" 92 by the end.  The AQI was down to moderate (in the yellow), so thankfully I could do this run without the pollution mask.  I pushed many of the hills, and it was a tough run.

10 miles, pavement and dirt.  It rained a lot yesterday, so the air was fresh and clean.  Humidity was high, but it was "just" 75 degrees, so not so bad.

10 miles, pavement and dirt.  First four was not bad.  Last 6 was increasingly difficult, even at a 9:00+ pace.  Weak.  Have had some kind of mild illness for a few days--cough, weakness, diarreah, but felt better this morning.
