3000 m in one day

Does not sound a lot. 3000 m in one day. I am just not talking about 3000 m as a distance but as a level difference. I went again to my mountain. Piatra Craiului that is. I had to. Third time this year, and if time allows it will go another time till weather changes. Than, if I can find some more experienced mountaineers I want to experience one or several winter trips. But let me go back to my weekend. I went accompanied by a friend with not so much mountains experience. In fact, first time when my friend went to the mountains, in a serious mountaineering trip was with me some 3 weeks ago. We went up the Read more

Due to subjective reasons that trip was a bad experience. But that is history. After 9 years I made it back on the top of Piatra Craiului Mountains, for the third time in my life. I planned the trip in detail. Even like this it did not went my way. Initial plan:   Initial plan was rather difficult. “La Lanturi” it is one of the most difficult trekking routes in Romania.

A lot of first timers

For the first time in Romania, and for the first time this year, I am going to run tomorrow. For the first time ever I am starting on Thursday to have Aikido courses. I have this in mind for a long time but never got to actually do it due to movements around the world. Thursday I am testing a place in Bucharest and through the week I will go to a second gym that has Aikido courses. I am 1 month in my, for the first time, 36 h fasting diet. Once every 2 weeks I do not eat anything for 36 h. I dine on Sunday and next meal will be Tuesday breakfast. I tried several fasting diets Read more
