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.

10 miles with a 5 mile lactate threshold segment. The 5 tempo miles were 6:55, 6:55, 6:52, 6:48, and 6:53. That's slower than I've done recently, but based on the heat/humidity, I'm happy with anything under 7 minutes right now. This was a good run overall, even though it was a little slower than previous runs.

65 degrees and less humid than normal

11.03 miles at 7:41 average pace. I was sore from yesterday's tempo run and didn't sleep well last night, so I didn't feel great today, but I got it done. I'm getting weary from running in the heat and humidity day after day, but it's June 1 and it's only going to get worse. 

72 degrees and humid

5.05 mile recovery run. Very slow and relaxed.... 8:35/mile. My legs were pretty stiff from the beginning, but they loosened up and felt pretty good by the end of the run.

5.01 mile recovery run in Ogden, UT at 9:16 pace. It's crazy how hard it is to get oxygen at elevation when you are used to running at sea level.

My flight from Utah back to Baton Rouge landed around midnight last night, so I wasn't expecting anything great from this run because I was tired from traveling to two days and staying up late. In the end, I was able to run 15 miles at 7:55 average pace, and I actually felt pretty good during it. It took a few miles to loosen up, but the last five miles were my fastest miles, which was nice.
