Week #6: The Start Of Paced Long Runs

In week #6, the Falcons were back at the flat route at East Coast Park for the start of Marathon Pace (MP) buildup.  The distances were up to 31km at MP traversing the lengths of ECP and Gardens By The Bay all the way to Promontory @ Marina.

The Sundown Marathon Pacers were also running together with the Falcons this morning as part of their long run training ahead of the first Sundown Lead Up Run next weekend.

The respective pace groups flagged at 7:15am, after a short briefing and announcements of next week's team sales equipping and training.  The skies were clear and blue, with the sun beating down hard in some segments of the run route.

However, the cool breeze could be felt when we run by the coast, helping to alleviate the heat to some extent - which in turn helped the runners keep to their target MP.

The Half Marathoners completed a steady 16km at MP to finish back at Parkland Green by 9:30am.  The Full Marathoners extended their paces to PA Campsite for a round trip of 30km+.

The Falcons are looking forward to next week's run with the Sundown participants as part of their continued build up towards their target races in April.

The Falcons Are On Pace For A Strong Race!
