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--7 Foremaster w/ Wendy's extension. The weather was decent. I'm feeling just a bit off, but that will work itself out. On another note, the SI gave but barely a whisper as I started to run. RHR--50. 

pm--3 Grass run w/ 4x 200s after. Nice chill day before Region tomorrow.

am--6 DI + Lutheran LED/Neighborhood Bushes/Running Center Loop. Felt good nearly from the beginning and held a decent pace on my own. Even the girls had a little more pep this morning. RHR--50. 

pm--2 A couple miles running around at Region. We had some close races. Congrats to two great teams. I'm really proud of the girls' 3peat.

pm--7 BHNP Workout. We started w/ 4x 100m striders then did 10 min. of 5k + 1 min. pace w/ 4:00 recovery, followed by 3x 2 min. at 5k + 30 sec. pace w/ equal recovery, finishing w/ 3x 1 min. of 5k pace w/ equal recovery. Very nice pack. The girls seemed to gain some confidence from this. I had a blast running w/ them. RHR--56.
