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.

am--4.5 Nice warm-up and 1.5-mile tempo w/ the girls. (They are packing up so nicely lately.) Then hit an extended DI cool-down. It was funny to see the steam come off of kids as they did track work. 

pm--3 Hot Nails w/ the girls, acting goofy.

am--10 Nice longish run. I didn't set an alarm. Just got up when the body said it was time and headed out for a run. I wanted to get some steady state/tinman (7:01-7:35) miles into the run. I decided to throw in some 10-minute sections--3 to be exact. I wasn't too concerned about a strict recovery in between. I just wanted to get some stouter running today. Overall the run turned out great. Average pace--7:44. It seemed that my legs wanted to keep close to the faster pace even during the off sections. Nice confidence run.

pm--3 Went over to help w/ the region course, but, lo and behold, Supah Dave already had it in pristine shape. I couldn't coach w/ a better guy. Region went very well. (Much thanks to the parents and everybody that helped.) The kids ran hard and placed well, and many kids run very encouraging races. My cheeks hurt from smiling; I'm so proud of the kids. FOR THE APPENDIX.

pm--7 School was stupid busy for me today, so I didn't end up running with the awesome kids. To top it off, my wife had Young Womens. I opted for the tready & hit some decent steady state miles--15 min. @ 7:30, 5 min. @ 7:20, & 5 min. @ 7:13.

pm--7 Had a meeting after work, so I didn't run until later in the evening. I ended up running 30 minutes in the steady-state range (~ 4 miles). It feels good to get a chunk or 2 or 3 of those mid-7s miles every week. I hope it will pay off. On a less happy note, I think I'm getting sick.
