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--4 Wanted to wake up and get the week off to a good start. I headed out w/ no preconceived notions. We'll call what resulted a predator run. Started at a moderate pace, worked up to close to a Tinman, and hit a pretty good tempo mile the last mile. The body is feeling pretty good. Maybe I'm getting my mojo back. I didn't type that last sentence out loud, I promise.

am--6 Well I got back out again after 2 busy days w/ school. Just an easy run on the trail.

pm--8.25 I finished the residency portion of my class today. Went for a run to celebrate. It was a beautiful day today as I went stomping  through the woods. I'm definitely getting my running self back little-by-little. Also decided to run the Waunafest 5K on Saturday. I think I'll use it as a tempo run.

am--10 Very easy. These last 2 runs have been longer than what I've been doing lately. I'm trying to build up my endurance. Today, my body gave me a little feedback. About 6 miles into the 10, I got marathon legs. Overall, I'm feeling a lot better. Now, just need to acclimate the body.
