CB013150Hello, everyone!

Hope you are well and happy, following your dreams wherever on the planet you find yourselves!

As for me, I am happy to say that I have an announcement to make. Do you remember my “must do in a lifetime” list? Yes, the one full of crazy stuff to do! Well, I took it seriously and I’m pursuing my dreams. Next on the list: THE NORTH POLE MARATHON!

The North Pole Marathon is described by some as “the running experience of a lifetime”, racing on top of the world. It is the only marathon run on water. Participants run on Arctic ice floes, with as little as 180 cm (6 feet) separating them from the icy Arctic Ocean. The coolest contest on earth, the coldes (with temperatures of -40C and polar bears), the craziest, menfitness.com warn us: “This race is only for runners who have the guts”.

I therefore decided to go beyond the dream and I have just registered for the next edition of the North Pole Marathon, which will take place at the North Pole on April 9th 2015!

This means that I need to start training seriously and be up and (literally) running my best by that time. The marathon might take place in 2015, but for me it actually starts now!

During this journey of physical and mental preparation, I would like to share with you updates, what motivates me in this new challenge, how will I manage to combine work, training and personal life, as well as the three values that guide me along the way – generosity, unity and transcendence.

In order to do that I created a FACEBOOK PAGE for this event, that I invite you to like, follow and share. Come along with me in this new challenge! Be my coach, my teacher, my supporter! Be my athlete, my student, my fan! Let’s do it TOGETHER! Let’s win it TOGETHER!

CB013150Bonjour à tous,

J’espère que vous allez bien, que vous avez le sourire et que le bonheur vous suit partout dans le monde!

Quant à moi, j’ai le plaisir de vous dévoiler un nouveau projet. Est-ce que vous vous rappelez de ma “must do” liste? Oui, celle remplie de beaux et inouïs projets! Moi, en tout cas, je ne l’ai pas oubliée, au contraire, je l’ai prise très au sérieux. Je continue, donc, de poursuivre mes rêves. Le prochain sur la liste: LE MARATHON DU POLE NORD!

Le Marathon du Pôle Nord est décrit par certains comme “l’expérience d’une vie», une course sur le toit du monde. Il est le seul marathon certifié qui se court entièrement sur l’eau : les athlètes courent sur la banquise en mouvement (eau glacée de l’océan arctique), qui ne fait plus, à certains endroits, que 1 à 3 m d’épaisseur. Reconnu par le Guinness World Records comme le marathon le plus au nord de la planète, il fait l’objet chaque année de nombreuses retombées médiatiques, presse, radio, TV, nationales et internationales. Ce n’ai pas pour rien qu’on retrouve souvent des citations comme: le marathon le plus “cool”, le plus froid (avec des températures de-40C et des ours polaires), le plus fou, etc… Nous sommes avertis par menfitness.com: “Cette course est seulement pour les coureurs qui ont du cran”.

J’ai donc décidé d’aller au-delà du rêve et très concrètement, je viens juste de valider mon inscription pour la prochaine édition du Marathon du Pôle Nord, qui aura lieu le 9 avril 2015 !

Cela veut dire que c’est le moment de commencer à m’entraîner pour être en meilleure forme possible pour cette course. Même si la course se tiendra en 2015, pour moi, elle commence aujourd’hui!

Pendant cette année de préparation mentale et physique, j’aimerais vous faire partager mon quotidien, mes motivations, mes challenges, mes progrès, mes bonheurs et coups durs au travers des valeurs qui me guident dans cette nouvelle aventure : la générosité, la solidarité et le dépassement de soi.

Pour cela j’ai créé une PAGE FACEBOOK dédiée à cet événement. Je vous invite donc à l’aimer, la suivre et la partager! Soyez mes entraineurs, mes professeurs, mes supporteurs! Soyez mes athlètes, mes élèves mes fans! Relevons ce défi ENSEMBLE! Conquérons ENSEMBLE ce marathon!

42-16335654Salutare la toată lumea,

Sper că sunteți cu toții foarte bine, că profitați de viață și sunteți fericiți oriunde în lume v-ați afla!

În ceea ce ma privește, am plăcerea să vă anunț o nouă provocare. Vă amintiți oare de postarea mea “the must do list“? Da, da, lista aia plină cu proiecte nebune și inedite! În orice caz, eu am luat-o în serios și continui să îmi urmăresc visele! Următoarea provocare de pe lista: MARATONUL POLULUI NORD!

Maratonul Polului Nord este descris de unii ca “o experiență unică în viață”, o cursă pe acoperișul lumii. Este singurul maraton ce se desfășoară în întregime pe apă: participanții aleargă pe banchiza în mișcare (apă înghețată a oceanului Arctic), care măsoara între 1 și 3 metri grosime. Recunoscut de cartea recordurilor ca cel mai nordic maraton din lume, acesta face obiectul unei mediatizări speciale în fiecare an. Întâlnim adesea citări de genul: cel mai tare concurs de pe pământ, cele mai rece (cu temperaturi de-40C și urșii polari), cel mai nebun, etc. Suntem avertizați de menfitness.com : “Această cursă este doar pentru sportivii care au sânge în vene”.

Dar am hotărât că visele trebuie să devină realitate, așa că tocmai am validat înscrierea la următoarea ediție a Maratonul Polului Nord ce va avea loc pe 9 aprilie 2015!

Asta însemnă că trebuie să mă apuc serios de antrenament pentru a fi în formă maximă în momentul cursei. Chiar dacă maratonul va avea loc în 2015, pentru mine începe astăzi!

Pe durata acestui an de pregatire fizică și mentală, mi-ar face mare plăcere să împărtășesc cu voi impresiile mele, ceea ce mă motivează, progresele mele dar și momentele dificile. Voi încerca să vă transmit toate acestea prin intermediul celor trei valori ce mă ghidează în această provocare: generozitatea, unitatea și depășirea de sine!

Pentru a putea face asta am creat o PAGINĂ FACEBOOK, pe care vă invit să o urmăriți, să o “like-uiți” și să o partajați! Alăturați-vă acestei aventuri! Fi-ți antrenorii mei, fi-ți profesorii mei, fi-ți mentorii mei! Fi-ți elevii mei, fi-ți sportivii mei, fi-ți fanii mei! Haide-ți să o facem ÎMPREUNĂ! Haide-ți să câștigăm ÎMPREUNĂ!

4810 m

Posted on September 12, 2013, by Arthur Kadar, under Ganduri ... Pensees ... Thoughts, Sport.

Since October 2011 when I wrote my first “must do” list I tried to organise myself to accomplish, let’s call theme, MY DREAMS!!! I wanted to start with a marathon. Big deception!!! Three months after I started training, I stopped! I started to train for the European Masters Swimming Championships! I stopped two weeks after! I wanted to plan my world tour on a bicycle! I failed!

I needed two years to accomplish one of my “musts do”! It happened some weeks ago when I successfully climbed the highest mountain in western Europe, the Mont Blanc (4810m). It’s a great moment of my life! Not only that I succeeded in getting on the roof of Europe, but I also learned a big lesson out there. Surrounded by snow, frozen feet, hardly walking and hardly breathing I was forced to listen my body (which was slowing down), to cooperate and to continue until the end! Wanting big things in short time was probably my biggest flow! That’s why I’ve probably failed in all my other plans. Sometimes we need to take small steps to reach the top! This was the lesson I learned during my first achieved dream! Hope it will help me to accomplish all my other dreams! Cause you know the saying: “When you’re on top of a mountain, keep climbing”

YES and I

Long and hard bicycle rids are, kind of, one of my passions. Why?! It’s the best way to push your limits, mentally and physically. You just need an old ’80 bicycle, your old Prada shoes, an old tracksuit, a heavy backpack (real cyclist don’t do this), you add some heavy rain on the road, some parties with your couch surfers and 400km on your bicycle seat (not comfortable at all).

What’s interesting is that there is no pleasure when you are on the bike, but you feel like in heaven when you are off. Every minute on the bike is one minute of difficult decisions: should I stop? should I go back? should I take the train? should I get some rest? should I take a glass of wine or an orange juice? … but every time I needed to make a decision (like every minute) I thought at Obamas campaign quotation: “YES I CAN!”… I can say I thought a lot at Obama!!! And, finally, “YES I DID”!!!

The big lesson I learned during this trip is that my 12 hours workdays are easy besides this four days spent on my bicycle seat!

All this just to say that I added to my training log one way trip from Nantes to Paris:

The comeback!!!

Posted on April 18, 2012, by Arthur Kadar, under Sport.

CANCELED for something even grater!!! Stay tuned!!!

len
I just want to make the big announcement for my big comeback in the swimming pool!!! More than 2 years have past since my last real training. It’s enough I said!!! It’s time to be “flipper” again!!! If Thorpe and Manaudou did it, why couldn’t I do it? So see you soon on the block-starts! This time under a new club: “Club Aquatique Choletais NATATION” or more simple “CAC Natation”. I already started my trainings on 15 of April 2012 and the big objective is to qualify for the 14th European Masters Championships in Eindhoven 2013.
