12 weeks have passed in a blink of an eye. Next weekend is the final test for all the Sunbirds who gathered for their training program finale run at ECP this Sunday morning.
Armed with 12 weeks of base-building with good doses of strength, speed and pace training under their belt, the Sunbird marathoners would gather for one final session to hone their final marathon preparations for the SCSM on 3 Dec.
The Optimal Paced run in their respective timing groups would have them run portions of the race day routes for 13km (HM) and 18km (FM). As a simulation for race day, most were dressed in their race armour and shoes, starting conservatively at Marathon Pace (MP) for 3-5km before progressing on and sustaining Optimal Pace (OP) for the remaining km.
By now, the Sunbirds are very familiar with the success formula and focused on executing their respective race plans to a tee. They all finished the 2-hour run feeling good and confident for a good showing on race day.
The Sunbird Trainers conducted briefings on the race routes as well as preparations in the final week for a successful run at SCSM17. We are happy that all Sunbirds have progressed to this stage of training with strong showings of improved aerobic base and speed endurance, with a relatively good injury-free record.
The Sunbird Trainers have enjoyed every bit of the 12-week program as much as what we hope the Sunbird trainees would have relished and benefited from. We would like to thank all Sunbirds for your confidence and patience with the training program.
The stage is set for this Sunday’s important race.
We wish all Sunbirds a fruitful and enjoyable run at SCSM, and may their commitment and dedication at training bring them the due rewards of hitting their marathon goals and Personal Bests.
The Sunbirds Are Operationally Ready For SCSM17!
