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.

Did 20 minutes on my eliptical glider to work out stiffness, and some lite wieght training on my legs. Will start running tomorrow with a 3 to 4 mile easy run.

Recovery run for the Marathon, had some pain in my right knee on the side which I had at about mile 14 in St. George. But I took some IBprofin then and it went away, didn't have any this mourning. Did 20 minutes on the Eliptical, and strength trained on my upper body for about 35 minutes. Stiffness has gone away in my legs and I feel like I am on the road again.

Went 35 minutes on my eliptical glider and strength trained my abs and stretched for about 10 minutes. Will run tomorrow 5 miles at a lite pace.

Felt pretty good today, total time was 42:06. Did 2 miles at about an 8:00 pace and then backed off for the rest giving my knee a rest and not wanting to get an injury. Came home and stretched for about 10 minutes, and then did some strength training on my upper body for about 30 minutes.

My pace averaged out at about 8:21 for the 5 mile stretch, my goal is to get faster and then be able to keep the pace on longer runs and eventually improve my marathon and 10k race times.

I felt really good today, ran 8 miles with some hills. I still haven't figured how to tell what my splits are with my Garmin 205. It showed that I averaged a 8:31 mile but I know some of my half mile splits were faster but then I had some 800 recoveries in there too. Total time was 1:05:30
