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.

AM- More running in the cold. I wanted to run more. Just get tired of the cold. 5.33 miles 

PM- Track workout. I was supposed to do 5 1000s. I did what the team was doing instead. Warm and strides. Then 6 600s. I pulled out of the 6th interval because I got light headed (because I'm a wuss). I'm pretty sure each 600 was around 2:22-2:27 range. Then after cooling down I figured I should hit one 1000. Ran a 4:03. So all in all still covered some ground on the track running decently fast. 8.23 miles

PM- Trespassing in duck hunting territory with Ross. He wanted to sneak into Antelope Island. Instead we got muddy and saw a bunch of ducks and swans. The last 2.77 I ran faster, mainly because it was not muddy and slippery. 9.77 miles 

PM2- I needed to run more miles so I had my dad drop me off a couple of miles from my sister's house in Stansbury. I felt stiff from the run and only a 30 minute break. Ran a 7:55 and 7:29 for my last 2 miles. Which for me, at this time, felt fast. 4.52 miles

PM- A couple of weeks back George and I ran parts of the road to the Bloomington Cave. We drove out to where we turned around last time. This time we picked up the trail and ran the trail all the way back to Navajo Drive. It was a perfect route. I think I wore George out. 11.01 miles
