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 8.2 mph. 100 miles in the next 6 days! time to get based up with some base training

PM - 5 miles in about 31-flat. wanted to go longer but my legs were just refusing to slow down, even if it did feel like they were. hitting 12 miles in 1:15 would be fun but i wasn't confident the legs could handle it after basically no running last week. after a couple of days of doubles i'll be back in my pace pocket

sotd: the middle of next month - boldy james

AM - 5 on the treadmill, 8.2 mph. wish my 24/7 gym kept those hours after the lockdown but i gotta wait until 5AM to run instead, at least until it gets warmer. last winter i was able to run outside at 4am most mornings and i have no idea how i did it

PM - 8 miles, 6:26 pace. had some of the worst stomach cramps of my life!! i was barely able to keep my back straight so when my watch died at 7.5 it broke me and i stopped there. not sure if the cramps were from the greek yogurt i had after breakfast or the coffee 90 minutes before the run, but hopefully it's unrelated to both because i can't live without my 3 cups a day and adding greek yogurt into the diet is easy protein. i'll get that PM 12 tomorrow!

AM - 4 on the treadmill, felt fresh from two days basically off. i'm not sure if i got salmonella again or that lactose-intolerance medicine was false advertising but dealt with the worst stomach cramps of my life the past couple of days. mostly passed it now.
