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.

I felt okay but on Mile 5 my heart rate was thorugh the roof and the pace was only at 8:29, so not real fast... I'm thinking I was deydrated where it was so damn hot and I'm probably not use to it. My average pace was 8:29 with a total time of 53:01, I finished up with some upper body weight training and some push-ups.

See you tomorrow.

Well it was a special day today, I felt pretty good until I had 3 miles to go but then I really struggled to the point where I collapsed when I go home. I had to have my son Ethan and my wife help me in the house. Can you say Heat exhaustion! I have never had that happen to me before and it ws not fun... But I got her done. My average pace was way slow at 9:01 and my total time was 1:58:20, It was a tough day.

See you Monday.
