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.

3-6:33 Some uphill and struggling

4-6:13 Nothing special

25:29 (6:22 average)

2 mile cool-down- This was actually the most time consuming part of the workout.  Had a pretty good mile uphill climb and then rolling hills back to the truck parked at the church.

Went out tonight and run over to 450 North and back, just an easy 4 miles

Needed 14 for the day to hit 50 for the week, something I haven't done since last summer.  I met up with Bill, Mike, James, Cody, and Ken and then we drove out from Mike's house up Utah Hill.  We had rain most of the run, which felt very nice, except for the fact I was wearing a shirt which I didn't ditch until the last 3 miles.  Anyway I was happy with how I ran this morning, especially considering my current "over-weight" condition, lack of training, and having did a good workout yesterday.

3-6:57

4-6:56

5-6:57- pretty consistent 3 miles in a row
