Falcons's Hills Romp

The Falcons went into week #3 with a good strength endurance workout at one of our favourite training areas around Mt. Faber.  

With the CNY festive season ahead, the runners were looking forward to get a high intensity workout to empty any excesses in time for more nutrition intake ahead.

The Figure-Of-8 hills repeats were lapped up with gusto and the cool weather helped to motivate us further with sustainable running at target BaseBuild pace.

We received good news of quite a number of trainees and trainers having lost a few kg each, giving them their toned and fit look with much easier running at training these past few sessions.

They in turn helped to fuel the motivation levels of all Falcons which shared nutrition tips and proper running schedules to attain racing weight for easier running and better performances at races.

The HM Falcons completed 2-3 hill loops before going back to SAFRA MF Clubhouse, but not without additional challenges from the undulating terrain.  The FM runners completed 4-5 hills before going for an additional 5km lap for a total of 24km+ of hills run.

These hilly training runs will go a good way towards developing leg and heart strength to build a solid base before we go into pace training in week #6.

The morning's training completed by 10:30am with all meeting the training objectives but still with reserves in the tank.  A nice stretching session was conducted by FatBird trainers to ease those tight and tired muscles for a faster recovery from the hard training session.

We now look forward to a well-deserved holiday break with some good refueling next weekend before resuming training in week #5.
