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.

Long run moved to Sunday due to Christmas. Plan was to do 2 mile warmup, 3 mile tempo, 8 miles easy, 3 mile tempo, 2 mile cooldown.

1st tempo- 17:01 (5:46-5:40-5:35)

8 easy- 7:05-7:15 pace

2nd tempo- 16:33 (5:31-5:32-5:30)

Had some trouble getting up to speed on the first tempo, couldn't seem to get the watch to read faster than 5:45, finally got a little better towards the end. 2nd tempo was faster, settling into a 5:30 pace, though after about 2 miles I was worried I wouldn't be able to make it through without stopping. Fortunately did make it straight through. Figured there was really no reason to stop because, though difficult, the pace wasn't slipping and I seemed to have been holding it fine. I figure it's not supposed to be easy anyways.
