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.

I just feel broken... I felt like I was just broken and my legs are so weak and tired, I don't know what to do. The last 6 miles I averaged 10:00 mile, not good. I have been struggling since I came back from Covid. I really dont know if that is still the problem or if its something else. Oh well.

See you Monday.

Elliptical for 45 minutes, I finished up with some upper body weights and some push-ups. Moderate pace on the elliptical, no more goose eggs. I have to strt being better at doing some thing every day. No more excuses. I'll just have to battle through this damn virus until its finally out of my body. The doctor seems to think the same thing.

See you tomorrow.

SLow and Painful and just down right messerable. Doctors say I am still recovering from the virus and then theres the Concussion from my wreck a month ago... I am a freaking mess. Mya verage pac ewas as slow as it can get at 9:54 with a total time of 1:10:56, I finished up with some upper body weights and some push-ups. I'm not sure about St Goerge this year, I have a tough time just getting through the weekly 7 miles so not sure what to do at this point.

See you tomorrow.

I am just broken and tired. 6 miles is about  the max my poor legs will go, SGM is a no go I think at this point. Hopefully they will let me defer to next year. My average pace slow at 9:42 with a total time of 59:31, upper body weights to finish up.

See you tomorrow.
