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.

Took an extra day off yesterday and decided to forego Payson today since the stupid high hamstring butt-itis has decided to come out of hibernation like it seems to do every couple years. Went very slow and easy with lots of walk breaks today, ave over 10 min miles and all was/is well. Hopefully the butt-itis won't get too bad but typically seems to take weeks or months to get it to go back into hibernation no matter what I do.

Nice and easy pace keeps the hamstring bum-itis happy. Felt pretty good the whole time.

Payson canyon run nice & easy. Hamstring has been pretty happy lately I'll keep the runs easy until the bum-itis is completely gone.
