WoFlowzHow about this lets stop fucking counting shit. Everything has to be fucking counted these days, people, runs, skiing, mtb. And tracked with a stupid fucking tracker Jesus Christ. Just fucking ski or bike to ski or bike not because of some god damn tracke. ErRrR i TrAcKeD 34899027918ft of some shit.
Op this ain’t an issue with you just do what ever floats your boat. I just think it’s rly something that I’m seeing to much of. A lot of people I bike or ski or run with are all about tracking because oh I have to do this or that. People in general need to put down their phones and be in the moment for a bit. Not all the time just a bit
Whoa you want some midol?
Geeze man. I don't have Facebook. I don't post to Instagram. I have a gopro but always too focused on skiing to use it. I barely take photos while skiing. I barely take my phone out the entire day. I don't even have friends here that ski to brag about all I do. Literally just ski.
I do use the ski tracks app to keep track of how many days I ski and to evaluate it on a personal level. The app runs gps so the extra power helps keep my phone warmer and not shut off. Additionally tracking vertical is useful as a marker of how you skied today. Sure 20k vert at A basin is not equal to effort of 20k vert at Peek n Peak, but it's a good marker to me of how hard I skied that day and I can continually evaluate my performance rather than just guessing. If I get 10k, that's pretty low. 15-25k is a good day. I can also see my speed so if I'm averaging 30mph as my top speed, that's a signal I need to step the fuck up.
In terms of my op, tracking and pushing to go as high as possible is really just a way to turn a boring hill into a challenge. Sure I could just ski open to close but tracking will give me a number to beat. It's a challenge. Not sure why I'm explaining myself to you cuz clearly something crawled up your ass but oh well.
