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 Hell's Hole Loop. Small group of kids today. It must be the end of summer upon us. The pace was a bit better than yesterday, and the legs felt almost peppy. RHR--52. 

pm--1.75 Weights and shakeout. I even threw in some light deadlifts today. Thus, no erging. Maybe Saturday.

am--7 Vernon Worthen. A few miles up the marathon course and back. The girls chose the low end of the window today and turned sooner than I wanted. Fortunately, a stop light allowed me to catch Michael, Kaylee, and Frida. I ended up running back to the park w/ Kaylee and Frida. We kept it pretty strong, and I got to catch up w/ some of our great runners from the past.

am--8 Reverse Clary Loop. I was beat this morning, but, nonetheless, the pace was moderate. I was able to pick it up at the end with the exception of an incline that really smacked me around. Good week. RHR--53.
