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.

7.3 mi + 3.7 mi

Took several days off last week to get over an illness.  HR responding a bit better today.  Still feel tired around the 30 minute mark, but can trudge through it now.

7 mi + Strength training

Took a longer lunch for this run.  Felt solid first 45 minutes and then HR dropped quickly after running a long downhill.  Didn't bounce back after that so had to shuffle the rest.

Strength training after work.

7.2 miles during lunch.  Still having HR and fatigue issues around the 40-45 minute point forcing me to slowdown and walk sometimes.  Sucks.  Might cut back all runs to 40 minutes until I go back to see the specialist.
