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.

Was kind of a grind but got through it. Felt off.

Ran up into and around Hyde Park. I've been struggling with consistency these past few weeks. It's not that I've been lazy, on the days I haven't ran I've been studying more. I need to find a few people to run with regularly to push me on runs, and get me on runs the days I'm not enthusiastic about it.

I need to be more consistent, so my runs this week are going to be shorter, but I'm going to try to run every day this week. Was kind of dehrydrated on the run.

Nice weather, wore shorts and a short sleeve shirt which was nice. Didn't feel very good though.

Left calf was tight for most of the run. Reading Shoe Dog by Phil Knight right now. More of it is about running that I though woud be. Enjoying it.
