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.

Six miles, then 2.5 miles walking.  I've been taking Norfloxacin, a fluoroquinolone anbiotic for food poisoning (two burritos from the local market).  Side effects of this antibiotic include muscle soreness, stiffness, and increased tisk of soft tissue injury.  As I ran today, my legs felt increasingly painful--calves, hamstrings and even my right hip flexor.  I had to stop or risk serious injury.  I've also stopped taking the antibiotic, and I'm using ice on my legs.  Discouraging.

I walked about 2.5 miles fast, and climbed the overpass stairs 20 times, two at a time.  No pain at all, but I didn't dare run after what happened with my left calf yesterday.  Strange.  Still sore (DOMS) from squats.

8 miles on the trails above Thaphon Dam.  15 minutes faster than 8 days ago.  I had a motorcycle accident on the way to this run.  Cuts, scrapes on right knee, arm, shoulder and side of my face.  Badly sprained left thumb.  I went ahead and did the run before going to the hospital, knowing I'd be unable to do so due to pain the next day.
