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.

am--5.25 Interval work w/ 2x 1600 and 2x 800. I unexpectedly jumped in a group and hit 7:20, 7:04, 3:30, and 3:34. I haven't run like that for a while. It was fun to push. I was at the edge of pushing into something that would've got my lungs and mind panicked a bit. There are some kids making big leaps.

pm--6 Barrel Roll in a figure 8. My legs were a bit tired, but nature cures many ills.

am--2.25 Decent run in the chilly drizzle. I love the morning crew.

pm--5.75 BYU workout w/ a new crew. It was a real workout for me. I missed the last pickup because one of the kids was having an asthma attack. It's fun to push.

I finished a quick, insightful read by George Leonard called Mastery. It's full of helpful stuff for life and athletics and vocations.
