#RoadToFrankfurt – It’s Data Time.

Today marks my last day of preparation for the 2018 Mainova Ironman Frankfurt which will happen next Sunday in Germany and it’s also the end of 7 months of work towards that goal.

It goes without saying that I’m a bit nuts when it comes to keeping records and data with one of my main focus this year having been the monitoring of that whole preparation as when it started, 7 months, 30 weeks or 210 days did sound pretty long but in fact it wasn’t.

While some of the datas like number of sessions, hours and kilometers are on point, the nutrition is just a glimpse and average calculated accros the whole 7 months as keeping record of the whole bunch of gels or energy bars I did consume was pretty hard in fact but it isn’t far from the truth I believe.

Now time to pack and fly over Germany to reach Frankfurt, it’s going to be an experience I’m sure!
