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.

5 mile run. Push and sit ups. Weights and heavy bag. Man I love beating that bag. I should have got involved with mixed martial arts at a younger age.

Away on training for work today, out of state.  I'm proud to say I actually worked out.  I have a hard time working out when I'm away from home.

5 miles in the gym on the worlds nastiest treadmill.  Man that thing was hard and off.  It said I was running a 4:40 per mile pace and I know it wasn't over a 7:30 per mile pace.  Unless I got in much better shape overnight.

Did my weight and push and sit up drills as well.  No heavy bag to hit.

Made it home this morning. 

5 miles at home is a lot better.

Weights, push and sit ups.  Hit the heavy bag for awhile.

Weight is 158 lbs.  My waist is pretty much the same as when I was running 15 miles per day, I'm just 19 lbs heavier now.  I'm putting some muscle on and I think the misses likes it!!
