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.

4 then bear attack struck with full force, kind of unexpected, made the last 1.5 very uncomfortable..but i did make it back...barely. first 2 miles were both 7:05, pretty steady early..never got in a rhythm. 40:00 total for 7:16 avg pace, althought most of the last mile was interrupted with "don't crap your pants" stops for about 30 sec intervals.

 side note, since my sickness, ive hit 37.5 in the last 7 days for 5.4 a day, not too shabby as im trying to build, now i need to decide if i should take a day off this week..

weather is awful today, makes sense given all the good weather we've been blessed with lately. it was 10 degrees with wc's between -10 and 0 with 30mph winds, so definitely not a day i was gonna run outside. decided to hit the treadmill for a "long" run of 9 miles, the treadmill only runs for 60 minutes so i had to pause quickly to restart it near the end of the run. splits on my watch taken during each mile on the mill:

1- 7:15.3

2- 7:02.3

3- 6:58.4

4- 6:48.2

5- 6:50.1

6- 6:49.4

7- 6:37.6 really cranked the mill up here

8- 7:06.9

9- 7:08

total-- 1:02:37, 6:57 avg pace

felt pretty good overall today
