Operation Sunbird 2018, Team FatBird‘s 12-week marathon training program for Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM), kicked off at the OCBC Arena in great weather.

A good flock of runners, many new trainees and as many returning ones, arrived early to the training ground in anticipation of the solid marathon training that will help them achieve their SCSM and racing weight goals.

A welcome briefing was conducted to explain the structure of training as well as to place trainees in different training groups, led by respective trainers, according to their running background, capabilities, training goals.  The weather was cloudy and cool, just perfect for the first long run for all Sunbirds to get on the right footing.

The first 4 weeks of training will focus on building up of a good aerobic base for these runners as a foundation for more intensive work in subsequent phases of training.  Today’s long run of 100min (13km) and 130min (21km) was conducted at BaseBuild pace along the scenic routes of Gardens By The Bay, Marina Bay Sands, East Coast Parkway.

Led by experienced FatBird Marathon trainers, the trainees were guided on managing their effort and pace, with tips on maintaining good running form during their 1.5-2 hour workout.

Training completed right on target at 9:45am with the successful execution of the first long run in training by all Sunbirds.  A post-run debrief was conducted to share and explain the progress of training, proper running techniques, hydration needs as well as injury-free running tips.

These weekend long runs will progressively be increased in volume (time/distance) and intensity as training advances into the next phases.

Ops Sunbird Week #1 ended on a high note with a smooth kickoff well attended by participants. This sets the stage for progressive workouts of basebuilding and pace training in the following weeks to strengthen the marathon abilities of all Sunbirds.

All Sunbirds now look forward to Week #2 where we will be going on to some trails & hills for their long run at MacRitchie Reservoir Park.

We look forward to seeing those who did not managed to come for this first training session at the next run, as well as urging more runners to join us for our tried and tested marathon training program.

The Sunbirds Kicked Off SCSM Training With Flying Colours!
