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.

Really had in my mind a plan to run today - but my work scheduled did not permit for it; and then I lost motivation by the evening.

AM - 3 miles easy with Finn in the neighborhood.

 

PM - lunchtime treadmill workout. Just enough time in my work schedule to squeeze in a little over 4 miles at marathon pace - (just under 7 mins per mile) - felt relaxed and controlled.

PM - in St. Pete for business/work.  Staying with Richie, so we went out for a run in the evening - easy for about 6.5 miles.  Evidently after the recent hurricane, the storm water systems maxed out the capacity of the waste water treatment facilities and three local municapalities decided to dump millions of gallons of raw sewage into Tampa Bay late last week - including near downtown St. Pete.  I was told the odor was overwhelming on the weekend - but last night it was not too noticable.  Yuck.

AM - got up early with Richie and found Justin in the neighborhood and after a 2 mile warm up we did 6 x 800 with an equal (~3 mins or so) rest.  Averaged right around 6:25 ppm overall.  I really do NOT miss the humidity of this area.  The dew point was 78 degrees this morning and feels like temp was 85 degrees at 5:15 am.

AM - 3.25 miles very easy with Finn on the golf course in the dark this morning.  Put a little light on his collar and let him run off-lead - so I could keep track of him.  Worked well.
