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.
feels like September not December. Just cruising along at 7-8 per day at 7:20-7:30 paces. Tomorrow I will hit the USU track around noon for some intervals to keep me honest. Thinking of running the carlsbad 5000 in March.... anyone done that?
two mile warm up @7:22. then 3 miles at 6:31. then 2.2 at 7:24. trying to get the feel for maintaining a 6:30-6:40 pace since all I have been doing is 5K and 10K races at 6:00-6:10, and intervals, and easy stuff. Now if I can just maintain that 6:31 for 23.2 more miles.....
