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--5.75 Contender workout on the SC Parkway bike path. Basically, we did some timed pickups. I was supposed to keep the pace between 6:45-7:00 on the pickups. Went fairly well other than the fact that the group was all over the place so not together throughout. 

pm--1.75 Bike path out-and-back w/ some strength training after.

I finished a meta book today--The Universal Baseball Association, Inc., J. Henry Waugh, Prop. by Robert Coover. It's about a man who essentially starts and runs his own fantasy baseball league as the sole participant. He goes to the extent of keeping stats throughout the seasons, dreaming up backstories, writing newspaper articles. Needless to say, his real life spirals out of control. Interesting read.
