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.

I ran cross country state champs today. It was my first time doing a 5k on grass. I started out pretty well. The first kilometer was 3:24, a little fast but that's usually how it is. I was in 4th place at 1K but I passed one guy and another guy dropped out so I got into second a little before 2K. At 2K I had 7:03(3:39). I felt pretty good. It was hard to run alone though. There was nobody within 30 seconds of me, both ahead and behind. I was still running well at 3k, I had 10:43 there(3:40.1). After that I slowed down a lot. I tried to speed up and I was able to for a bit, but it was really hard for me to keep that pace. I ran 3:54, 3:54 for the next two kilometers. I tried to not be too miserable and I was still running a pretty hard pace. My final time was 18:31, I got second place. First place was about 1:30 ahead of me and third place was more than a minute behind. The course was about 200 meters long, so this time would probably be under 18:00 on an accurate course. Overall, I'm happy with this race. I feel like it was a good experience in being tougher.

2X1 mile with a quarter recovery. The first mile was uphill and the second was downhill. I ran the first mile in 5:39. My splits were pretty even and it felt hard but good. I was worn out afterwards and wondered if I would be able to do the next interval so I ran the recovery really slow. I decided to start out in 80 seconds then see how I felt after that. I don't remember the splits exactly, but I got 5:15. It was a good time but I need to work on being less miserable while I'm running. Overall this was much better than last week.
