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--8 SC Rugby tempo. I love doing my faster work at the rugby ground when I'm on my own. The tempo went well, expecially considering that I was mentally trying to bail on running this morning. I'm not sure why, but this part of the summer always requires more focus. Anyway, despite the long grass, I was able to hit times comparable to the dirt mile and remembered that showing up is 90% of the battle. RHR--50.

am--4.25 Grass loops w/ 6x barefoot strikers. Lots of rain and fun. RHR--49.

pm--1.75 Weights and running and a game of fish on the erg.

I finished George Orwell's Animal Farm. Perhaps, this is the second time. Sometimes, Orwell is overbearing with his analogies, but this book was interesting in regards to our current political situation.

am--7.25 Fartlek work on the grass. The paces were variable w/ equal rest. We had some great groups going today. Kids are starting to see the power of a pack. It'll be skeleton crew on the girls' side for the rest of the week. RHR--53. 

pm--2.5 Out-and-back to the edge of Sunbrook. I wore my Altras, being curious about how the achilles would feel in them, and they felt surprisingly good. That being said, I need to be more vigilant about maintenance after runs.
