I do not know what tomorrow will bring but I do know it will start with a run.

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.

Met Tara at the LPT for the usual Tuesday run.  It's starting to get cold.  Temp was 29 when we started.  I've been feeling heavy and slow and my hamstring is still causing issues so I wasn't expecting much out of myself.  We hit the turn-around in 32 minutes and ran the second half under 30 minutes.  Much better effort than the last 2 weeks.

Too slow and too short.  I have completely lost all of my running ability.
