As the Falcon runners were looking forward with anticipation to their first weekday hills training run, the skies opened up from 5pm and threatened to spoil the whole party.
We had a pleasant surprise when we arrived to the start point at Labrador Park MRT at 7pm to see more than 50 participants had gathered in spite of the rainfall still raging on. We had a check with the stations and were informed that Cat 1 will remain till 8pm.
The rain came to a stop at 7:45pm, and we decided to go for the hills workout but with and adapted plan - instead of doing the Mt. Faber Hills, we would tackle the Labrador Park Hill loops for good measure.
The look on the faces of the Falcons said it all - they were just so happy to get off the starting blocks, and sprang towards the direction of the Labrador Hills in their respective groupings.
In a stroke of good fortune where we had a brief 90min respite from the heavy rain, the first Falcon hills session turned out to be one lung-bursting, fat-burning and fruitful workout that was thoroughly enjoyed by all, as evident in the beaming and satisfied faces of the participants.
The Falcons look ready to rock on in the following weeks to come!
POWER TO THE FALCON!
