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.

Total of 22.5 km in 2:12:25 and 900 calories (according to the treadmill).

It was good to get the 14 miles done but I would've liked to have done it in one hit. It's been raining torrentially all day and I couldn't get outside. The treadmill is great to have but it's so boring for long runs. Good start to the week though!

9.4 km in 57:00 on road. Massive amount of hills all the way and it was testing to say the least. I only felt as though I warmed up properly after about 20 minutes. I reckon I'm getting fitter!

10.2 km in 54:57 on road. The same hill run as yesterday but just a little further. Felt great but I probably could've ran a little easier if I didn't go wine tasting before lunch :)

27.4 km in 2:36:00 on the road. 1:18 something there which means I ran a negative split on the way back. It rained heavily all of the way which definitely made it a whole lot cooler but my shoes weighed a ton! I've had a shower and a couple of panadol and feel great now :) I really need to get more of these long runs under my belt!!

I felt terrible when I woke up this morning - putting it down to hay-fever. Decided to do some speed work when I started running as I felt like I wanted to get the run over and done with in as little time as possible. It turned out to be a great run although it was very very hot. Tomorrow 10 miles and christmas food shopping.

6.3 km in 37:51 on treadmill

then 10 km in 53:31 on road. 27:37 there and 26:04 back. Ran wearing skins for the first time and didn't like them one bit! I found them really itchy (probably due to my hairy legs) and they just didn't feel right. Good thing to know for the marathon in Tokyo but if it's going to be as cold as this year I may have to reconsider. Shave my legs perhaps??

12.9 km in 1:13:20 on road. First run in 3 days and first since the xmas - jesus i felt shite! It was 92% humidity and 25 degrees...no wonder why I felt like I was running in a Sauna! I missed my 12 mile run yesterday so I feel rather dirty. I'll have to make up for it with 4 more runs this week, rest Saturday then a 19 mile Sunday. Giddyup!

10km in 57:40 on treadmill. I'm finding this humidity really hard going at the moment. Going to try to fit another session in tonight to get my miles to 10 today.
