Even if he is in the middle of the degree 87°, encountering no major problems and having no more than 318 km to go, Catalan Albert Bosch does not want to think of a day rest.

Here are his latest datas :

24 December - day 55 : 10 hours ski / Total time on skis : 356 hours / Distance done today : 29,3 km / Total distance done : 838,1 km / Distance to SP : 318,14 km / Days of progression : 40 (36 Solo) / (Forced or unforced rest days 15 (0 solo) / Total days of voyage : 55 / Position : 87º 15,700 ' S / 81º 48.641' W.

23 December - day 54 : 9h45 hours ski / Total time on skis : 346 hours / Distance done today : 23,5 km / Total distance done : 808,8 km / Distance to SP : 347,4 km / Days of progression : 39 (35 Solo) / (Forced or unforced rest days 15 (0 solo) / Total days of voyage : 54 / Position : 87º 00.052 ' S / 81º 44.980' W.

22 December - day 53 : 10 hours ski / Total time on skis : 336.15 hours / Distance done today : 27,1 km / Total distance done : 785.3 km / Distance to SP : 370,9 km / Days of progression : 38 (34 Solo) / (Forced or unforced rest days 15 (0 solo) / Total days of voyage : 53 / Position : 86º 47.226 ' S / 81º 52.980' W.

Bosch considers that on the Christmas day, he will have no more than 10 days to go. It means that from the 25 December on, he will be able to calculate the days left by numbering them in descending order : 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, etc. This seems to help him quite a lot.
