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.

Did a hill workout similar to what we did a couple of weeks ago. These workouts are always tough but it did seem a bit easier to me than last time. Did 8 repeats like last time but did them a bit faster.

Another 8-mile morning. Felt a bit sluggish today for some reason maybe cuz it was warmer than the last few days and a bit muggy.

Got in 5 in the morning just before the rain started to pour, looks like Kim wasn't so lucky. Also went to the gym for 30 min XT.

Did some faster miles today. After 4 mile warmup did 6 mile tempo run with 3 mile cool-down. Cheated a little bit and ran net downhill but mostly flat the last 3 or 4 miles. Warmer and more humid than I would have preferred and I think I got a bit dehydrated. The 3 mile cool-down was a death march. I was hoping this run was going to be easier than it ended up being.

Tempo mile splits: 7:09, 7:12, 7:16, 7:13, 7:12, 7:05. Ave 7:11
