Gigantic Achievment

The 15th of Janury 2017 will be written in the history of O-sports in frozen letters as a day of returning of SOC (Skate Orienteering Competitions) to the calendar of PZL after nearly a five year delay. This skating event also became a world record holder of the lowest number of competitors who completed the race on skates. The final number was 0 out of 13 successful runners/skiers.

The race took place at the Floods Pond which really suits to the type of competiton which could be easily described like a waterskiing on ice. So it wasn't weird to absolve a part of the race off the ice.

And no to the results in a brief. An amazing performance by His Majesty - first podium in his first start of year 2017. So let's move to other big aims of this year.

PPŽ – summary / delay / mercy is still alive in Czech Republic

42./DNS/26./26. on PPŽ 


 It's time to make some statement about my runs at PPŽ. 

I have a mixed feeling, cause it could have been better, but also much worse. But in retrospective I can say I’m satisfied with not yet the Cup finished. The worst performance came on the second tier during race in which i didn't compete. I lost contact with the race at the forking of underground after I went with metro line A although the race was at the terminal station of line C. Before every PPŽ race I don't feel like I'm going to screw it. I want to fight... but almost everybody is running even better than me. I would write it's really nice to have such a strong bronze men's team... but it could sound a little gay.

One really unpleasant experience came on Wednesday afternoon. I entered myself into upcoming Pupils Cup jungle sprint. I asked God if I can start in the race after I finished elementary school in the beginning of this millennium. Nobody cared. So I raced and lost myself. An obstacle appeared on my way to the race. A guy at the train station asked me 14 Czech crowns for ticket from Prague-Havelville to Hostmore. That was cruel. In Czech Republic you know it's advantage to use public transport. After the race of PPŽ I decided to run home on the same day! haha... Fame on you Bottle, Honorpine and others... You shouldn't probably train as much, if such an lame competitor can't finish less then 9-14 minutes after you. I am 25th nobody and nobody care. And everyone is even happy cause I bring my Royal credit to the race. But nobody would have played rules against the Majesty in any case I'm sure. I have no power to glorify anyone because I had to run all the way back home. Although being a not as young - little bit veteran without any ambitions.

They call it Pupils Cup but none from the competitors is pupil and not at all none of them figure high. And when I tried to roll in nettle this is what happened. I'm fucked up. Now I'm focusing just on inside Prague races and international biathlon races for the rest of the year. Current World Cup standings.

(exhausting anabasis back to Kingdom)

Maybe I took it too personally but that's me. I'm not gonna spend fucking 14 CZK on train back home.

A Swan Song at Aswan

It is more than half a year since the last post on this blog but don't be sad, not many orienteering happened in the last six months of His Majesty. As another winter season started it is time to take some serious running drill. Anyway todays cold weather isn't very motivating for any training so why not spend some time in a little bit warmer climate.

So His Majesty visited the land of pharaohs to attended the race "Tour de Nile Valley". The weather was hot and the sightseeing was cool. We visited a sleeping mummy in a tomb near the 3rd control, we waded through the River of Nile, we climbed up steep sandy dunes at the 5th control, we reached the peak of the Pyramid of Cheops at the 9th control.

For other monuments see the map below:

Saint Roland Dilemma

The crucial question of the last days is where to go next week on competition to celebrate the 14th of June - the Saint's day of Roland. The offer is vast but if You want to run Prague races You have to go to the western Bohemia. That is not far from where the western Bohemian races are held at the same time.

That doesn't look like a proper coordination... But maybe there is a reason. Search in the center of the triangle for solution.

Vagus Kros 2015 - Photoreport

The 2015 edition of Vagus kros took place in Highfamousville on Tuesday near one of the newest water treatment facility operated by Veolia.

The competiton was broadcasted directly to Kim and to all people in other advanced people democratic states.

Of Course the stairs couldn't be missed.

And Dan had finally cheered up. 

Only the man on the balcony remained furious. Maybe he was envious that he must stay at home and we should go to the pub "At the Envy."

Ιλιάδα III

Today His Majesty Not-Menelaos, the former king of Sparta, went to pillage Troy - the famous fort in Little Asia (established name for the territory on the eastern shore of Vltava river). Homer's epos contains many useful information about the race but there is not any reference about the steep  arid slopes of Troy hillfort. The elevation to the start is almost equal to the whole climb of weekend relay races which I have already given up. According to Iliad the siege was to last ten years but His Majesty conquered Troy in less than fourty minutes. So it was another very succesful campaign.
