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--7 We had sick kids all weekend and, consequently, disturbances in the middle of the night. That really diminishes the restfulness of my sleep. So I ended up missing practice but still got in some good miles later. 

pm--3 A nice little jaunt w/ a buddy, catching up on the past.

am--5.5 We've been sans internet for a few days, so I'm just catching up. We did some hill work today--3 x 1 min. and 4 x 30 sec.--then added to the gas station. The kids we're strong, and the girls made the most of their first "workout" of the season.

am--5.5 We had practice at the Bloomington North Park and hit some hill work on Webb Hill--2 x 30 sec. and 4 x 1 min. The hard part was that we recovered continuing up the hill. After the hill work, we dropped off the other side and finished w/ some grass loops at the park. It seems like running in deep grass works some of the same muscles that hills do.

pm--8 Got in a nice run w/ 3 miles @ tinman pace, which for me is 7:30ish. For the first 3 miles or so, I had a little pf irritation. The pain hits in the back of the heel, and the Asics seem to exacerbate the problem. It has bugged me on-and-off for a while. Things worked back to normal. I've been thinking about my running a lot this week and have come to a decision or 2. Stay tuned.
