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.

8.5 miles, pavement and dirt.  Planned 9, but had just a little bit of soreness in left calf close to fibula, so I cut it a little short.

I ran one mile, and left calf along fibula started to hurt.  Walked home.

I walked about four miles fast, including 20 x up and down the overpass stairs, two at a time.  Later: hamstring, glute, hip and calf raises with ankle weights.  No pain, no problems.  It's discouraging that I can do all of this with no problems, but calf muscle has pain after just one mile of running yesterday.  Arrrrgh!
