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.

Lincoln Half marathon today - nice to have a big race - 5000 runners. Feels like the world is getting back to normalish. Also great to see a huge number of spectators out and watching the race. Lincoln did not dissapoint. A little warm and more humid than ideal at the start, 63 degrees and strong SSW winds that stayed in our face for quite a big chunk of the race. It seemed like everytime we went downhill the wind was in our face. Made for a really tough run on an already tough course. Splits: 6:01, 5:57, 6:00, 6:07, 5:58, 6:04, 6:05, 6:19, 6:24, 6:03, 6:16, 6:03, 5:47, :48 - 1:19:53. You can see in the splits that I was on a roller coaster the last 5 miles. Fell off in miles 7-9 and thought the 1:20 line passed me by, but somehow found the strength to bust it 3 of the last 4 miles and close with a 5:47. Turning out of the wind and getting it at our back helped, the course also evened out and had some downhills finally. But I dug deep, and I was happy that I didn't quit - even though I felt like I cashed it in on a few different occasions. Offical 5k splits were: 18:49, 18:45, 19:22, 22:57 for last 6k. decent cool down of 1.4 miles and all-in-all a good day

speedwork today, 1.8 mile 1/u, 3.82 mile tempo, (should have just gone 4 but stopped suddenly and annoyingly at 3.82, just was too beat to keep pushing), 5:49 5:40, 5:41, 4:34 (5:36 avg pace), 21:46 total for a little over 6k, 5:42 avg pace - still farther than I was able to push this pace a few weeks ago

Hill work today - did 10 reps up a big hill (about .2 mile long), about 2 miles total of hard uphill running (5:40-6:10 pace), warm humid drizzle during, nice to get some hillwork done, hopefully will translate into speed later. 8.5 total

long run turned into a nightmare today - very humid (Iowa summers) and so I thought I could still go long, felt fine through 8 then started to hurt, at 12 stopped to adjust my shirt which I had taken off and was bouncing around tucked in to my shorts and just couldnt ever get back into a rythym after. To top it off I started to get a migraine at that point to - somehow found a way to get home (was still 3-4 miles away at that point) - running can still humble you sometimes and today I got mine

good long run tonight, at mile 14.5 after my 2nd GU i really hit the wall, had to stop twice just quick to recompose myself, then it passed. Don't think my legs have ever been this tired, been putting up some mileage lately, 19.3 today on the long run, despite the wall issue, felt stronger the longer it went - 2:17:29, 7:07 avg pace
