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.

Woke up at 5:50 am this morning to prepare to race. Felt okay actually from my sickness and everything, but still decided not to race, I'd rather save the money and wait til next week when Im healthy. I figured the sleep was important so I went back to bed for another 4 hours. When I woke up I went out and hit the trail for a uptempo 9 miles. I basically wanted to see how far I could run at a decent pace and that was about 7 miles. Splits:

1- 7:01.9

2- 6:44.7

3- 6:43.6

4- 6:41.8

5- 6:53.4

6- 6:59.6

7- 7:03.6 (48:08, for 6 miles, 6:51 avg)

took a 1 min break here and then used last 2 miles as a cooldown

8- 8:22.0

9- 7:45.3

TOTAL-- 1:04:15, 7:08 avg

Overall, a good run. I decided to count everything under 6:45 as tempo miles and under 7:05 as GMP. Overall, a good run and it helped me gauge my current fitness.

beautiful new route today, but horrible horrible run. Had terrible GI issues and had to stop at mile 4 for a bear attack. Barely made it home after that. pretty sure i was right around GMp for the first 4 miles, right around 7 min miles, but after the stop just wanted to get home. 37:43, 7:15 avg pace.

busted my butt today, 12x400 at 1:16-1:20 pace with 1:15 recovery. Totaled times added up would be 5:15, 5:13, 5:13, for a total of 15:41 for 3 miles or 5:14 pace. Pretty good avg times added up, but my legs felt tired so I am taking another ice bath even tho i just took one last week. Hopefully rockin this 5k this weekend!
