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.

My training schedule for the St. George Marathon called for a 90 minute run and so I took 10 miles easy enough to accomidate that time frame and my legs almost gave out on me towards the end, which was kind of surprising. I don't know if I am getting worn down from training or what but it was my worst feeling run to date. Time was 1:33:20, any advice anyone?

I took off Thursday and Friday hoping I would have a better long run on saturday but I am still having the same problem, no legs. I felt good for the first 6 or 7 miles but then at about mile 10 I was really struggleing. I think I am going to go back to my flatter corse for my long runs this is really hilly, mostly up hill and then you come back the same way which is mostly down hill, so we will see how it goes for my last long run on Saturday before I taper for the Marathon. Time was 2:50:33.
