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.

Didn't run today, slept in didn't feel very good.  After school I was busy with meetings and then we had a surprise birthday party for Jordan, we had quite a few of his friends over for cake and ice cream.

Ran up the Twist on the road, then over to the steep trail and back through the gravel pit, had to extend a little to make it 6 miles.  I struggled on the trail sections, but glad to get out kind of cold this afternoon, ready for spring weather.

10 miles all over the place Hurricane Canal, Three Falls, back on 180 West and then down through Pah Tempe, got pretty tired at the end.  I think this is the longest run I've done since the marathon.

Pretty good run today.  I don't know what happened but I took off at a good pace from the start.  I did two miles over to the Hurricane Cemetery in 14:15, so 7:07 pace and then decided to also push the pace on the way back in 13:45, so overall a nice 4 mile run.

Nice run down to Pah Tempe and then up the river.  I turned around at a place I will call Pao de Acucar because it looks like the big rock in Rio de Janeiro.  Good 6 mile run.

Substation Tempo

3 mile warm-up

2 mile tempo 12:27 (5:59, 6:28)

1 mile cool-down

I did this same tempo back in Oct in 11:30 (5:42, 5:47) so I've got some work to do to get back in shape.

A year ago on Feb. 23 I did this workout in 12:49 (6:17, 6:30)
