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 - 5 on the treadmill at about 6:30 pace. spent the first 10 minutes at 8.0 mph then bumped it up by 0.5 every few minutes until i was moving pretty good(wasn't coordinating the pick-ups with mile splits but most of the last mile was spent at 10.5). achilles felt fine, was a little worried there after last night. hopefully it just needed to get loosened up.

PM - 5 on mural, 5:58 pace. gym after for core n upper weights. felt like my achilles was gonna explode by the end; not hurting but wasn't feeling super great. probably would have been fine had i not gone straight from the run to the gym. i got my sets in, at least.
