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 2x2 miles ouside today with .75 mile recovery in between. (mind you this workout was mostly downhill except for the 1st mile which was net uphill and 4th mile which was equal on elevation gain and loss) Splits were 6:27, 5:59, (.75 at 7:10 pace recovery) last two miles were 6:08 and 6:29. (6:23 avg pace for 4.75 miles) Felt pretty tired by the end of this one-especially once I was home. I think I was dehydrated and felt much better after drinking lots of water.
