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.

Still running about 5-7 miles a day and slowly improving with the lower HR stuff. It's somewhat monotonous.  I am weight training 3 times a week and don't monitor my HR on those days so I'm wondering if that affects aerobic improvement too. Anyway, I plan on sticking with it for another week and if no significant change, I'll return to my normal plan of MWF with the group and a tempo or speed day on one of the other days. Running slow and alone is not much fun.

Wanted to share this with the blog. May have already been mentioned but it's a fun read.

Ran thru Holladay in the rain. Was time pressed but was happy to finally run a bit quicker, felt really good on the run.

Did a strength training session and wasn't planning on running but decided to do a little treadmill session.

Workout was 8 x .25 at 12 mph 1%

Once it got up to speed I jumped on and did a rep then stradled for a minute and repeated.

In theory, this would be a 75 second quarter mile with only one minute of rest. I plan on going to the track next week and seeing if I can do 8 x 400 in 75 sec average with a one minute standing rest. Doubtful but possible.
