Of course you do--especially if you're attempting an Ironman Triathlon. Turns out there's an optimal answer to that problem and a way to "cheat", courtesy of Joe Friel, legendary athlete, author and founder of TrainingPeaks. I'll get to that conundrum in a minute.

RunKeeper, a maker of health and fitness tracking software, has made its Health Graph API available to the public after a closed beta with a small group of developers. The new API provides access to RunKeeper Health Graph -- a system of individual health connections that create digital map of an individual's personal health. The Health Graph provides a record of the evolution of an individual's health, including a snapshot of their current physical condition, how this has evolved over time, and how social interactions may have influenced activities and behaviors.
