Calories counting in Endomondo and other fitness apps

Calories counting in Endomondo and other fitness apps

Can you rely on calorie counting that fitness apps show us? The answer is quite simple – you can’t because every human being is unique. The body of each person behaves slightly differently and we should be glad. However, there is no need to stop looking at calories in apps. They might only be estimated but they can give you a better view on what impact do your activities have on you.

Race 1000 Miles Adventure, day #9 – How I made it to the half

The ninth day was the last and one of the toughest. I nearly froze in Jeseníky mountains and flew over my handlebars. My landing was for zero points.

Race 1000 Miles Adventure, day #8 – How I coudn’t trust my GPS

The eighth day was one of the best in the race. It was nice to have some rest before the second checkpoint. I was told that the Czech part is harder than the Slovak one, but I have to say that the roads there were much easier.

Race 1000 Miles Adventure, day #7 – How I escaped from Slovakia

Finally, I left Slovakia. I can’t say it was ugly, but they pay by euros, on their signs is some weird font and home is home. I didn’t know that time that I will taste ambience of the music festival.

Race 1000 Miles Adventure, day #6 – How I threw my bike to a scarp

I planned an easy ride for the sixth day. I didn’t want to look devastated at the first checkpoint. But the track was more complicated than I expected … as always.

Race 1000 Miles Adventure, day #5 – How I was constantly challenging myself

Race 1000 Miles Adventure, day #5 – How I was constantly challenging myself

Day five was the longest of them all. The weather made fun of me. When I was packing my equipment before the race I didn’t think about winter and this was a revenge.

Race 1000 Miles Adventure, day #4 – How I biked through the territory of cows and shits

I got used to living on the bike during the fourth day. But not even a single kilometre was easy. I had a lot of problems with weather. After three days of non-human heat the rain came.

Race 1000 Miles Adventure 2015, day #3 – How I was going to use pepper spray for the first time

On the third day I started having problems with my bike. For one moment I even thought about giving up. Fortunately, there was a lot of cycle services in Slovakia.

Race 1000 Miles Adventure 2015, day #2 – How I was afraid to go through the tunnel

The next day was much harder. It was a little more hilly, the terrain was rougher and the temperature was above forty degrees. I made 120 kilometres in spite of these unpleasant conditions. But at the end of the day, I was nearly dead.

Race 1000 Miles Adventure 2015, day #1 – How it all started

Race 1000 Miles Adventure 2015, day #1 – How it all started

1000 Miles Adventure is a 1600 kilometres long race for bikes, feet or kickbikes through Slovak and Czech mountains. Everyone is on their own – you have to carry your own food and drinks, find a place to rest and sleep. Racers have to follow a GPS path and have to hand all tracked data to the organisers at the end of the race, so they can check that they didn’t cheat. And this is my story of how I struggled on the road and faced a lot of challenges and dangers.
