No idea. Just trying to stay in shape after several heart related setbacks.
Long-Term Running Goals:
Lower bodyweight and complete some more races.
Hooked onto running in 2005 after years of mostly powerlifting.
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.

Marathon Pace Miles
VO2 Max Miles
6.7 mi run outside, various pickups during back half. Surprised I'm not sore and sluggish from strength training a couple days ago, maybe I'm finally getting used to it.
Strength training session later in the day.
