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.

pm--6 Another nice run along the lakshore path w/ a little exploration added on. The trails out here are single track paths through the woods. The dense foliage messes w/ the signal on the garmin. Oh, BTW, the weather is perfect. I'm going to cherish 2 weeks of training in the fall-like temps while it's triple digits back home.

pm--7 I got out on the lakeshore path and took it through the forest and back. Fun run. I believe that this is the longest single run that I've done post marathon, and guess what? The IT is feeling great. But now the top of my left foot is sore, almost like I tied my shoes too tight sometime last week. I'm going to ice it tonight. I wonder if the pain could be coming from the light stability shoes that I'm wearing everyday to school. I end up putting 2-3 miles a day on those. It's fun hoofing it around Madison, the perfect college town. Don't pass up the chance to come here. As Yo Gabba Gabba says, "Try it. You'll like it."

pm--6 A brisk, windy day, even for the Madisonians, w/ a little rain. But I got out on the trails again. The legs are starting to feel good again, and 6 or 7 doesn't feel too bad. The foot's still a little sore. Nonetheless, I'm feeling good about running again. Yeah.

am--7 The last 2 days have been in the low 60s w/ some humidity. Perfect running weather. Today I branched out a little and ran down to the UW Arboretum to do some exploring and then back up Bascom Hill to the dorm. The first week I have hit 30 miles in probably a month. Feeling better everyday.
