In weeks 3 and 4 of Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM17), the Sunbirds took to the hills at Mt. Faber and Labrador Park and braved the twin hills repetitions challenges.

As part of foundation and base building, these hills repeats weaved into their long runs aim to strengthen their aerobic base and toughen their running feet and physiques.

The Sunbird trainees led by their respective trainers completed the 22km-26km workouts in very hilly terrain, without any thoughts of wanting it any easier…Kudos to their commitment and mental strength to overcome the tough workouts dispensed.

They kept to the training paces in both weeks’ workouts and returned with high scores in meeting the training objectives.

The trainers were suitably impressed with the high tolerance for ‘pain’ of the Sunbirds, which have allowed them to complete the challenging missions.  This will put them in good stead for the next 8 weeks of buildup towards SCSM in December.

With another week of base building next week at MacRitchie Reservoir Park, the Sunbirds would have completed Phase 1 of the training with sufficiently sound aerobic base and better running economy, before moving on to Pace Training in Phase 2.

We look forward to seeing continued good progress from the Sunbirds, while hoping that those who have missed some of the foundation sessions would be able to do their own make-up training and return to the Nest soon enough for us to bring them towards meeting their race day objectives.
