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.
2 mile lake swim (60 minutes)...another couple minutes faster! Hopefully I can get that 2 mile swim time down around 55 minutes, then I should be able to do the 1.2 miles on race day in 30 which would be a nice start to the race.
Soccer practice in the evening. I played some with the kids. It was fun.
40.4 mile bike ride with Blake this morning. Then I followed it up with a 2.5 mile run. I guess I was still feeling good since my AP was 7:01. I definitely didn't feel like I was running that fast, but I'll take it.
