The Falcons returned for training in Week #4 after a good CNY break. The turnout was respectable and the various groups were raring to get down to more basebuilding to ensure the aerobic base continued to be enhanced.
The thinly-staffed Falcon training crew did a commendable job of managing all the trainees into Keppel Marina with the HM doing a single 6km scenic loop whilst the FM trainees did 3 6km loops before returning to clubhouse.
The HM groupings of 2:00h, 2:15h and 2:30h ran strongly back along a rather long upslope before getting onto Depot Road for more up slopes back to SAFRA MF Clubhouse. The Full Marathoners for 4:00h, 4:30h, 5:00h and 5:30h did well too, evident in most of the runners able to keep pace in the up segments of the route.
With Week #4 completed well, the Falcons are looking forward to next week's continued base building at the undulating terrain of MacRitchie Reservoir Park.
