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.

Ran the PHSC 5K this morning. Went into it thinking I had a shot at sub 16, so planned on pacing through mile 1 in 5:05 and then just try to hang on to that. Warmed up 3 miles and did some strides, which felt kind of flat... Oh well, just see what happens when the race starts. Anyways, stuck to the plan with mile 1 coming in about 5:05ish. Could see the clock after passing the halfway point and it read 8:00, but figured it wasn't happening as I had already fallen off pace. Came through 2 miles in about 10:25, and the last 1.1 was a 5:25ish pace. Finished in 16:25. No sub 16 today but at least I didn't totally blow up to a 17:00+ Cooled down for 3 more miles after.

I think working on speed more would definitely help, as my tempos indicated I could've done it. Getting my interval work of 800s-1600s in the 4:50-5:00 pace range would be ideal. Probably will be a while though until I can give a 5K another shot with Boston training starting in December.

Track workout: 2 sets of (1600, 1200, 800, 400) with 600m jogging recovery after the 1600s and 400m after everything else.

Set 1: 5:08, 3:50, 2:31, 69

Set 2: 5:10, 3:52, 2:33, 68

Felt pretty good on the first set, okay on the second set. Some shin tightness on the second 1600, which messed up my landing a little, so couldn't quite keep form together towards the end of that rep.

Tempo workout: 3 x 2 miles with 2:00 jog in between targeting half marathon goal pace. Didn't have as much trouble getting on pace as I usually do.

11:14 (5:39-5:35)

11:03 (5:32-5:31)

11:02 (5:33-5:29)

It was nice to hit low 5:30s for a good part of the workout, that is some good progress right there. Still some shin pain/tightness that feels like it can mess up my landing, so I was worried my form was going to break on the last rep, but fortunetly held it together.
