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.

Good run. A bit tougher for Emily. I continue to inadvertently push the pace a bit as I am slowing down for her. It frustrates her but she will get better as she runs consistently.

No core workout today.

My Fitbit watch says 1.6 but my phone says 2.19 so I don't know which to trust. I will be buying a Garmin soon. I'm on a bit of a budget so any suggestions?

Meditation afterward.

I went out at my pace and Emily had a hard time with it so I slowed down and she struggled the rest of the run.

I had to get to class so I skipped Core.
