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.

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.

Totally possible. Depending on the time you go to the track, I would possibly want to join you. That is, if its cool with you.

Welcome back Adam. My guess is this is very possible. Especially with standing rests. Just try to find the same rhythm you had on the treadmill and stay in the 74-76 range until the last two.

I know you can do it Acorndogelius!

I want to hear how this turns out!! But yeah - you had the treadmill on an incline, so you should be able to repeat that feat; barring significant head winds. Hope you're doing well.

I think I'd fall on my face if I hopped on the treadmill like that.

The trackwork seems doable. Go for it!

Yowzza! Way to go, get after it!
