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.

PM: 10 miles w/ 5-mile cutdown, averaged 7:41. HR 154 but slightly off I think.

2.3 up, said why not a tempo? Got moving from ~9:15 pace to 6:40 fairly quickly. Went with feedback from auto split, thinking 6 miles around 6:40-6:25 would be a brief but satisfying workout. I hit right on to start and kept cranking it down as I felt good.

6:41, 6:33, 6:23, 6:07, 5:54 (6:20 average)

Last mile finished a bit hard, but I cut down a little too quickly the last two. Feel in decent shape for running rather training.

Cooled down to 10.

The Canadian geese are being jerks. They move to one side of the path, then have to move back every time I come around the 1-mile loop. One of them was hiding behind a trash can and jumped the crap out of me by fluttering its wings just after I had passed. They hiss, I swear at them. I much prefer the ducks. Pretty sure I saw a swan swimming in the pond too. I apparently just missed Megan. She's been running outside as out complex treadmills are children's toys.

I got my forklift certification yesterday. I still have to make some corrections, but I am getting it. We shall see how I handle a double load of pressure treated lumber when it's 20 feet off the floor.

PM: Impromptu Long Run - 17 miles easy to moderate, averaged 7:35. HR 163??

Picked up the pace at the 2-hour mark to LT for 9 minutes. Did 8-10 pull-ups after every five laps of the lake.

Decided to do my long run today. 3 hours of tutoring and 8.5 hours at work tomorrow. Lighter on Sunday but I'd like to long some extra tutoring hours.
