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.

long run day. Building up to 8 miles today in the 87 degree heat and did I ever feel the heat! I still ran very well, just definitely wasnt much shade on the trail. Even finished off the last mile with a GMP mile, pretty cool. Splits:

1- 7:10.6

2- 7:02.2

3- 7:08.0

4- 7:07.7 (28:28, 7:07 avg on the way out, 20 mph wind at my back)

5- 7:23.7

6- 7:21.1

7- 7:32.9

8- 6:58.6

TOTAL-- 57:44, 7:13 avg pace

Overall, a really good run. You can see where I turned around at mile 4 and went into the 20 mph wind instead of having it at my back. The difference was first four miles=28:28, last 4, 29:16. Almost a minute positive split. So the wind and heat definitely played with my splits but didnt really affect me too much as I felt decent throughout.

tried a brand new route today. Pretty cool to get a change of scenery in. Because of it though, my splits/mile markers were all messed up. I did get my final time and i did verify it was 5 miles. I did todays run in 35:57, 7:11 avg. Felt pretty good. Quite warm out though and i did sweat a ton!

Not a good run today. Sposed to be a 4 mile tempo. Ended up calling it after 3 cuz I was way off my splits and just had nothing in the tank. Not really sure why, just one of those days.

had a good opening mile, 5:59.9, 2nd mile was 6:23.8 then had a 6:39.0. For some reason, i just had absolutely nothing. 19:03 for the 3 miles, 6:21 avg. Pretty rough day.

great run today. Went out for an easy 6 and ended up bustin my butt. Not really sure about the mile splits on this one aside from the fact that I know it was 6 miles. That being said, I know my last mile was for sure a 6:42. and my total time was 42:00, which is 7:00 avg even. Now that last mile may have skewed things as I was around 7:03 avg pace throughout before that, but I will go ahead and just count all my miles as GMP since my avg pace for the entire run was 7:00. A good run in great weather. Awesome!

Hard workout today--i pretty much created a workout designed on torturing myself. I basically did a ladder. 800, 1600, 3200, 800. It wasnt as easy as it seemed however, and I was hurting by the end. Splits:

800- 2:47.3 (5:34 pace) --3:00 set break

1600- 5:49.5  --3:33 set break

3200- 12:37.1 (6:18.5 pace)-- 3:24 set break

800- 2:55.4 (5:50 pace)

Overall, it was a very tough workout. I was surprised by how tired I was at the end and how bad I was hurting. The 2 mile was probably the low point of the workout. I just lose my pace on that trail every time. Definitely didnt feel as good during that one- i know during the 3200 my first mile was 6:08, so my 2nd mile was pretty slow, around 6:29. Def have some more work to do on bringing up that end of my running.

a roll out of bed and go morning. 3 very slow miles and it felt like i took a million tiny little steps. I am just worthless running wise when i literally roll out of bed, throw on shoes and go. 23:50, 7:57 avg. at least it was good to slow down and shake out the legs.
