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.

3x5minutes threshold pace. Was going to do 6 but started coughing again... ended with 2 miles at M pace instead. Not feeling bad, but my fitness is definitely lower since getting that flu... (6.9 in 49:51)

Today was supposed to be a 2.5 hour run, and was going to be progress back towards my marathon that was going to be in 4 weeks. It ended a little over an hour through, with repeated stomach aches, bathroom breaks, and then the white flag. (8.5 in 66:24)

I went online and switched from the full marathon (SLC) to the half marathon. I'm not sure whether I'll do another spring marathon. I doubt it, as I don't want to pay late prices and I think I need a break anyways. I will definitely be signing up for STG when registration opens in less than a week, and I will carefully be training for that. This training cycle had a lot of setbacks, but I also had many consecutive training cycles prior to this one with almost no issues, so I can only be grateful. Officially switching to the half marathon was relieving for me, as I can now calm down and stop worrying about a goal race. This half will be competitive, but also FOR FUN. I will be doing it alongside family and multiple friends, and it will mark the beginning of a week of vacation.
