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.

16 miles, 7:10 pace. Heart rate gets inaccurate in the cooler weather.

3 miles worth of work: 1600, 2x800, 4x400 with 600m jog after the 1600 and 400m jog after everything else. Given the lower volume, the plan was to run these quicker (like 5:00 pace or better). Almost made it:

4:57, 2:31, 2:29, 70, 70, 69, 68

Sub 5 streak lives another year! Pretty cool to do it in a workout given that I was only a 4:50 miler in HS. Had some trouble getting back on pace for the first 800 so missed the time goal a bit on that one. It was still daunting to have the goal of hitting 5 flat for the 1600, even though I knew it was well within my capabilities for the fitness I'm at right now.

Final workout before Space Coast half - 5 mile tempo targeting around half marathon pace.

Splits: 5:40, 5:34, 5:33, 5:34, 5:29

Was kind of a mess today, felt like trash from the start of it and it was one of those days where the heart rate just goes nuts, like it immediately went high even on the warmup. I think a lot of it has to do with my shins, which have been tightening up badly during workouts to the point where it feels like it messes up my landing and I can't hold form together. Had to take a 30 second break at about 3.6 into the tempo to stretch it out, super frustrated about that. Other than that the workout was executed fine, it just didn't feel good today. All things considered, I'm glad I was still able to pretty much hit the pace I wanted. Just gotta try to fix the shin problem in the next week so I will be ready to rock it on race day.
