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 turkey trot as a final tuneup for the Space Coast half. With that in mind, did not plan on going all out and trying for sub 16. Instead was going to just shoot for 16:40-17:00, so more of a tempo effort. But with it being in a race setting it is hard to hold back so I settled into a 5:15 pace, but it still felt like I was cruising it at the mile mark. Definitely felt harder than a tempo effort closer to two miles, this was another 5:15, so 10:30 at two miles. Lost a little speed going up the hill in the third mile, so this one came in at 5:20. The last 0.1 was downhill so the pace naturally picked up, didn't feel the need to go as hard as I could here so I just kind of cruised it in. Finished in 16:20, 2 seconds off my PR which is pretty good considering I didn't go into this one with the intention of trying to get a PR. Harder than a tempo effort, but not quite all out, I would say 90-95% effort. Felt like I probably could've gone to 4 miles at this pace (Maybe in 16:00-16:05 shape right now?). Anyways, focus is on Sunday now. My goals are:

A: 1:12:xx

B 1:13:xx

C sub 1:14:35 (PR)

The C goal I should definitely get and will be pretty disappointed if I don't. The B goal seems reasonable and I think its something I can honestly shoot for without risking a major blowup. The A goal is a little bit of a stretch, but I don't think is totally out of reach, I would probably need to be having a very good day to hit this one. Race day weather is looking decent, mid 50s and not too windy, so I've got that going for me.
