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.

6.750.000.000.006.75

6.75 miles during lunch, general aerobic run. A breeze made it feel less humid.

I had my follow-up appt with the cardiologist yesterday. Resting pulse is still abnormally low (31 bpm on EKG), but he's not concerned since I'm symptom free now and EKG is normal. Told me to watch for symptoms (palpitations, dizziness, etc) as guide for doing too much.
