Yesterday “Pokemon Go” was released in Germany. Seems like everybody is jumping on to that hype with phrases like: “Finally I have a reason to go outside and enjoy nature.”
For me it’s more like: “Oh, look … more Smombies on the road.” (Smombie = Smartphone + Zombie) But honestly I’m happy, that this happens. Two “unsporty” friends of mine spending now more time in fresh air, leveling their pokemons and pushing their stats. (statistical values)
For me, I do that stat pushing thing with cycling. Almost like in a video game except, that this is real life.
So here are the values I created:
Strength = FTP (currently round about 240W)
Stamina = Resting heart rate (42 bpm)
Aerodynamics = Speed on flat roads for 10 minutes by almost no wind resistance (42 km/h)
Power to weight ratio = bodyweight (72 kg)
Money for cycling = bank account (140€ @ the moment 😉 Yeah, we all know: cycling is expensive.)
But there are also daily quests in cycling like:
– bike service
– proper nutriton
And then I have my “dungeons” like:
– personal bests
– and other cycling milestones
What are your stats?
