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.

AM - 3 quick miles outside before the rain, then 6 miles easy on the TM as it rained.

PM - 9 miles on a bike path.  All easy again.  Went to the doctor today to check out my irregular heart rate at times while running.  Did an EKG and everything was normal.  He thinks my resting pulse rate might be too low (36) and a lack of fuel combined with burping is causing a vasovagal episode.  I was thinking the same thing.  He's referred me to a cardiologist for a stress test to find out exactly what is happening.  I don't really want to go through all this because I don't see a solution anyway.  More for the wife's sake at this point.

AM - 7 miles easy, but in this humidity nothing seems easy for me.

PM - 10.5 miles out and back on the bike path.  I was soaked once again by the end.  I'll be on the TM the rest of the week while my wife is out of town.
