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.

10 minutes bike, 30 minutes stairclimber, 50 minutes elliptical. HR seemed about 5-10 beats higher than normal for the effort I was putting in. Maybe because I did my workout earlier than usual and I was competing with my digestive system still working on my big breakfast?

Ave/Max HR: 153/166.

Warmup: 10 minutes on exercise bike, 20 on stairclimber, 20 on elliptical.

Then did a repeat of 5K elliptical "race" workout like I did a couple of weeks ago. Was hoping to beat my time from before (18:40) and was successful, cutting off 5 seconds.

5K time: 18:35 (Ave pace - 5:59, but probably equivalent to 6:20-6:30 running pace effort).

Ave/Max HR: 153/199

Similar to Mon/Tues. Also went to the PT this morning and did core stuff. I've been doing the core work pretty diligently usually 3 times a week.

Warmup: 20 minutes bike, 40 minutes stairclimber, 10 minutes elliptical.

Then tried to do a simulated marathon pace workout on elliptical for just over an hour, roughly equivalent to 9 miles running? Tried to keep HR in the 170-190 range which I think is probably close to where I'm at during a marathon.

Ave/Max HR during tempo: 179/191.

Cooldown: 20 minutes on stairclimber. Ended up 155 minutes of workout, probably just shy of 20 miles running so we'll call it 19.5.

Hope I can endure one more week of total crosstraining, then in December I hope to attempt some easy run miles on 3-4 days of the week, starting with 1-2 miles.
