Orienteering - preparing for a comeback in 2005
I have decided to concentrate on orienteering next year (2005). After
an "adventure racing break" in 2002-2004, I want to train and
compete in orienteering again in 2005. I feel motivated and I hope that
orienteering will be a great fun when the season starts in spring. My
goal is to join the Czech national team for World Championship which takes
place in Japan in August 2005 (the map next to this text is from there).
The terrain is extremely hilly which I like. I started to train in a different
way about 2 months ago.
I have updated almost all parts of this web site during December. Have
a look around. Also my new training diary is online now - read more under

(3 days). After some initial problems with my skating technique a few
weeks ago, I can enjoy and carry out interval training both in classical
and free style now. I tried ski-orienteering as well - first time in Scandinavia.
