Ops Kingfisher kicked off to a rousing start with lots of slopes, hills and thrills. After a good rest from Sundown Marathon end May, the trainees were anticipating some solid workout to rev their engines up for the Army Half Marathon in 6 weeks time – and they were not disappointed!
That being a rather new location to some, plus the ongoing bout of flu that has hit some participants, the 70% turnout was not bad. The participants were not disappointed as they went for some neat hill repeats, that after being served a 3km appetizer of a run-up to the MF Hills, and then rounding off with a dessert of slopes yet again before finally settling back at the Clubhouse.
Some of the participants had jello legs after, while others claimed to have trouble finding theirs. Overall, it was a great experience for all, and the sense of satisfaction worn on the Kingfishers’ faces told a story on one unforgettable hills training menu.
With the first session of hills underway, the Kingfishers can look forward to more exciting training coming up, with tempo trail runs, speedwork at the tracks, intervals with scenic views, long hill repeats along tourist places of interest, and more…
There were a few enquiries about whether it is too late to join Kingfisher – the short answer is you will still benefit from the 6-week structured training program with the opportunities to do your own make-up training following the schedules, if you have missed a couple of earlier sessions.
