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.

Another great spring morning. Ended up doing a "Big Mac" tempo run. In this case the bread (miles 2,4,6) was marathon pace and the meat (miles 3,5) was at threshold pace. These days anything between around 8-8:30 pace I call marathon pace, and 7:30-7:59 is threshold pace. About a minute slower than in days gone by but I'm just happy to be able to run relatively pain free so far this year.

Another big mac tempo run, similar to last week but a bit faster. Lately the morning temps have been perfect for running hope it lasts.

Nice & gentle run. A bit on the warm side but looks like that will be changing later today and through the next week.

Tweaked my back a couple days ago so took it nice and easy. Beautiful morning saw a baby fox dragging a dead pheasant off the trail.

Another gentle day. Did some walking but mostly slow ran the miles. Back seems to be getting better that last couple days.
