Today we bring you the experience of Pepe Martin, entrepreneur and long-distance mountain runner.
Pepe met us at Google for Startups, he decided to try our service to find out the state of his heart and to get the medical certificate of physical fitness to run the Ultra Trail du Mont-blanc in the OCC mode.
Pepe has been involved in sports all his life: tennis, paddle tennis, cycling and now long-distance mountain running.
For years he had been doing stress tests that allowed him to know the state of his heart by pushing it to the limit but he did not know how his heart acted in his day to day life, with stress, work, training and sleep.
As Pepe himself told us he wanted to know how his heart was acting by monitoring itself all day long and not in a 15 minute interval:
"I know my heart is healthy because in the stress tests everything works out. But it's only 15 minutes where I do something very specific. What I'm worried about is my day-to-day, the lack of sleep, the hours I work and my rest. Can you monitor that?"
Pepe monitored himself 24 hours a day for 10 days. Monitoring his heart while working, resting and training with long duration and intensity workouts. Collecting a total of 1,150,000 beats that he donated to our project #donalatidos.
As fun facts we got:
- Your heart is resting at 29 beats
- It has a 4.7 second stop when recovering from high intensity training.
