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: 9 miles, with a workout.  Alternating 6:00, 2:00, 6:00, 2:00, 6:00 intervals with the last one planned easy at MP and  2:00 recoveries.  Intervals felt easy, but my watch's heartrate is definitely unreliable.  RIP.

Splits (pace)- 5:13/mi, 5:12/mi, 5:16/mi, 5:10/mi, 6:00/mi

PM: 5.1 miles with Darek, Luis, and Jeff

I just didn't feel like running today.  Feels bad typing that out.
