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.

Fairly rough to start, but the boys slept in a bit and I went to sleep on the couch with the monitor so Megan could sleep. I went back to bed and worked through things after that. Made my peace with the fact that I will get done what I can on some level for the semester and the world is crazy. Tried to focus on positive thinking.

Started to feel increasingly better throughout the day and did all the little things that add up (showering, hydrating, and so on). 

Had my Wahoo Kickr smart bike delivered. I made all the adjustments and was able to get a ride in. It's incredibly smooth and now I don't have to take my bike on and off the trainer and not put wear and tear on it. Going to sell the old trainer.

PM: 60' on the trainer (Pettit -1). 131W. HR 128.

Wow. What an incredible machine.

Anxiety at an all-time high. Struggled. Knew I had to take care of the boys and parent with Megan but I found it impossible to function.

School shooting in Oxford today just north of us. My anxiety went through the rough and wasn't sure I was going to make it through the semester without checking myself in somewhere.

PM: 60' on the trainer (Bays). 184W. HR 151.
