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--5.25 30/30 workout. I hit 18 today. The active recovery, working to half the distance is tough. I was able to get 2 hard efforts in per loop. Once that dropped off, I was done. Surprisingly, it was my legs that were done before my lungs.

am--5.5 Did some hill work in Hell Hole. 'Twas grand. The only caveat is that you have to climb the hill out after all the work is done. 

I didn't get out this afternoon. My wife is at girls camp, so I'm #1 dad this week. We went to Despicable Me 2.

am--7.5 We ran from Vernon Worthen for practice and ran up the Iron Man course. Made it to the top of the hill before the turn-around. We are starting to have quite a pack of girls. It's glorious. 

RHR--57 I wonder what this means.
