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.

5.3 miles outside.  Heart was well behaved during run, but had a very brief tach episode while walking afterward.  A bit concerning but I guess not unusual during ablation recovery.

7 miles outside before church.  Heart is acting a bit more tame, tach episodes are imperceptible or muted.  Still not sure my pacemaker is properly pacing my heart though as it seems high for the running pace.

5.8 miles during lunch.  Beautiful day outside.  Decided to dramtically cut back on caffeine as I think it's messing with my heart rate as well.  BRAIN FOG!

6.3 miles jogging before work.  Wore heart rate monitor.  Still seeing a lot of variability in heart rate, which is kinda concerning to me, but no out of control tach episodes.  Or could they be smaller episodes.  Appt in a couple weeks to see how things are going since the ablation.

3 miles jogging during lunch.

5.2 miles easy jogging.  Not too bad.  But need to get on a gradual schedule.  Did too much this week.
