In less than a week I will participate at the first major race of this year, the GlaGla race of the Alpine Lakes Tour in France. To conclude my training I participated at the training race in Eglisau, organised by the local dragonboat club (dragonboat.ch). The race is held once a month during winter, as a means to keep track of your fitness. The course is 7km upstream and then the same back down, what makes it really technical on the way up, as you have to navigate really close to the shore to avoid the current.
My time was not the best ever, but we had some wind at the turning point which slowed the way back quite a bit down. All in all I am happy with the race and I am looking forward to competing on Saturday!
