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.

Total Distance

A little over a mile warmup, then an 8 mile distance run. The first two miles I ran with Mason, Austin, Christian, Kindon, and Kedric, but my calves hurt a ton from yesterday so I slowed down quite a bit. I hit just under 32 minutes for the 4 mile mark. The rest of the guys had 2 minutes on me at least. After that I sped up quite a bit. I caught the pack at 6, but didn't slow down. At this point it was raining pretty awful and was freezing, plus very heavy winds and a lengthy uphill to top it all off. Mason and I still managed to run the last .9 miles in 4:54, according to Mason's watch. Official splits;









Calves stopped being so sore 4 miles in but then I felt good, but afterwards they were hurting again. Did strides after, felt uncomfortable below the knees, above the feet. Nice workout. I think I could've fought Mason harder and pushed us harder, but also I went too hard anyway. Oh well. Looks like tomorrow's easy.
