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.

Warmup then a run for almost 30 minutes. Feel like it's back to square 1, but what do I expect?

45-minute Peloton PZ endurance ride. Good class, steady moderate effort to extend the ride a little from my recent usual.

Peloton endurance run + a warmdown walk. Ran 5 miles in ~ 47 minutes, with walking moved for an hour and 6 miles. Sweaty but did pretty well, albeit very slow.

Did a bit of a progression run, got to 8:00 pace, which felt way too fast! Still, happy with the run and feeling a little more like a runner than I have for a time.
