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.

AM - dynamics and strides on the turf farm. no run. my knee was tight and my ankles stiff

PM - 5 on mural, 6:05 pace. knee felt better, ankles not as much but i think the run loosened them up. we've got a cold front hitting so i was able to run at 2pm and have it be just 70 degrees out. beautiful.

AM - couple of miles on sokol, then about 40 minutes exploring the golf course across the street. i'm so familiar with sokol that running it borders on tedium, so it was nice to see some new sights today. 6:15 pace for 10 miles

AM - 8 on the treadmill. woke up just before 2am and felt awake enough i figured i'd get some mileage in and afford myself some more sleep between the run and work today. started at 9.0 mph for the first mile, then upped it two ticks every mile until the last one was 10.4 mph. did this a few days ago but stopped at 10.0, it honestly felt easier today. i'm hoping in a month or two i can be strong enough to do this but get up to 11 miles with the last one at 11.0 mph. 

lots of quality mileage the last 24 hours.
