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.

AM - 10 miles on sokol, 6:16 pace. very sloppy conditions, haven't ran much the past few days because of absurd bouts of rain making all my courses untenable(giving the definition of that word a good stretch there). we got over two inches in under an hour at one point. i did a couple miles at the gym the past couple days but i'm not gonna log them to shame myself into getting real treadmill mileage next time it's the only option. 

AM2 - hour at the gym. mostly spent doing weights but also did some core and started off with a few minutes on the stationary bike(something i do before every morning run). did some cable kickbacks to end it and i knew by like the second kick my hamstrings are gonna be killing me the next few days. isn't supposed to rain today for once so hopefully getting a PM run tonight is on the table
