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--5.5 SC Elementary loops. I jumped in for most of the workout w/ level 2s but didn't stop my watch when I gave them times, so my pace looks tortoise-style. 
 

pm--1.75 Easy afternoon run w/ strength training afterwards. Doubles bring a skeleton crew. That's always fun for me.

am--3.5 Nice run, chatting w/ Moss about anime and various tasty toast toppers. 

pm--4.25 Anasazi to the top to complete some climbing for a challenge in which I have no eligibility. Nice heat work regardless.

I finished a Brunetti mystery, Death in a Strange Country, by Donna Leon. Good but not quite Montalbano level.

am--5.75 Tuweap Tempo w/ hill sprints to finish. The level 2s packed nicely today. Nice progress. 

pm--1.5 Afternoon shakeout on the grass w/ strength after.
 

Finished another Montalbano novel, The Pyramid of Mud. It's a nice one about the mixed corruption of Mafia and government in Southern Italy.

am(1): 3.5 Up the Harmon's path w/ what has become my crew most days. Had a good chat about books.

am(2): Precipice from the bottom w/ Ellie and Josie. First time I've seen Ellie since her mission. I'm happy that they reach out for a run so we can catch up once in a while. Great people.

pm--5.75 Anasazi w/ Chipmunk loop. The youngest has been a bit sick from his shots, so I didn't get out w/ anyone and not until later. I was rewarded, however, w/ one of the nicest runs of the year. There was a drizzle the whole time, coupled w/ the excitement of looming thunder and lightning while I ran on exposed ridges and shoulders. I need to remember this one.

I read a scholarly book--Situated Learning by Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger--today. There was some fascinating stuff about learning in apprenticeships. Nice to read stuff like this once in a while.
