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.

Out to Gu Corner and back via canal road, I ran into Bigfoot which was nice. I had some GI issues on the way back but I got through it, pace was a struggle as my legs were just tired from the week of higher mileage. My GPS was all messed up on my watch for some reason this morning, average pace was 9:01 with a total time of 1:14:43. I finished up with some upper body and lower body weights. Good end to the week.

See you Monday.

I got Up late and I only had time for just a 6 miler. I ran into Bigfoot which made it all worth it. I need to find a reason to run othr than just do run... I need to get my motivation back some how and I don't know how to do it. My average pace was better at 8:35 with a total time of 52:56, I forgot to stop my watch on mile 3 otherwise my pace would have been 8:25.

Heres to a better week mileage wise next week.

See you monday.

My average pace was slow at 9:14 with a total time of 56:58, I finished up with some lower and upper body weight training and some push-ups.

See you Monday.
