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--14 I ran 3 or 4 times at the PVXC run-a-thon at 3 or 4 miles a pop. Each chunk, except for the last 1 that I ran w/ my daughter--she ran a mile straight and is awesome--I hit 8:00/mile or below, and it felt comfy. It was a fun day, especially when friends and fam came to put in the miles in the midday sun.

am--4 Easy miles to run the tired out of my legs. It really feels like Fall is coming, temperature-wise.

pm--6 Warm-up and run over to Sunrise Tire hill. Up and down 4 times and back to the school. This is the first time that I have ever finished one of these big hill workouts. It actually felt pretty good.

am--6.25 A good run w/ neighbor Greg. We pushed it up some hills and took it easy on some flatland. We saw 2 skunks, and I had to take a pit stop. 

pm--.5 Warm-up, core and drills, and a long run in what still seems like the heat. The body was really feeling the miles this afternoon.

am--6.25 Had a tough time waking up but was all right once I got going. Once again, it felt like a Fall morning. I wish the afternoons would catch up. At first, the run felt labored, but then I was able to hit 2 nice tempo miles--7:3Xs--and bring it on home. 

pm--4 Warm-up and cool-down w/ the kids. On top of that the varsity boys made my day with a call saying, "We won! We won!" Coach and I have to be some of the luckiest guys ever to interact w/ these kids on a daily basis. What smart, hard-working, tough kids they are. Congratulations, guys.

am--20.25 A nice easy long run w/ Bags. Ran w/ just water and some water w/ some Magma Plus mixed in. No GU. The body was tired, but I was able to bring it down around marathon pace for the last 2 miles. All in all a good run. 

pm--6 2 things I have wanted to do are hit a marathon mileage day on a day other than marathon day and run 80 miles in a week. I was so close after this morning's run that I had to get out for 6 more. I feel lean and mean.
