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 Before a get-together at school. My daughter's been sick, and now my stomach's feeling a bit iffy. Needless to say, the run was a chore.

pm--8 I decided to try a little out and back to see if I could keep a steady pace both ways or maybe even negative split. I hit the first 4 in 34:00--an 8:30/mile pace--and returned in 30:00--a 7:30/mile pace. Chalk those up as Tinman miles. This run is a roller but does gain elevation on the way out and lose it on the way back. Nice to pick up the pace a bit.

am--6.25 Nice jaunt on the Anasazi Trail w/ Tom. The back of the knee/side of the calf has a little twinge. We'll see if I can get it figured out. Good week for me.
