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.

Run & walk for 5 miles during lunch.  More running this time around.  HR pacing stills feels off during exercise.  Hope they can fix it when I go back in a couple months.

5 miles outside in perfect weather.  Stopped to walk once.

30 minutes of swimming after work.  Didn't go very far and was wiped out at the end. Felt really good. Counting it as 1.5 easy miles.

Took an easy 5 mile bike ride with our youngest before dinner. Another 1.5 easy miles equivalent.

Early 6.3 mi run before work (9:30 pace).  Steamy, foggy, and buggy!

Swam for 30 minutes during lunch. A lot of breaks to catch my breath.  What a workout. Counting it as 1.9 mi easy miles equivalent.  Don't ask how I came up with that number.

6 slow miles before work.  Had a close call with a large spider and its web.  Ducked just in time.

6.6 mile run & walk during lunch.  I started out feeling really good, but was miserably out of breath after 3.5 miles.  Might be several factors like high humidity and bodyweight.  Not use to heart beating faster or it's not beating fast enough given conditions.  HR avg. 112.
