The 3 times aircond road did however get to some of the trainees, but in the end, the great weather more than provided the boost for the runners to complete the challenge for an equally tough run back along the Island Country Club slopes and Northern Trail.
A very good outing for the Sunbirds which was incident and accident free, followed by cool down stretches conducted by some of the Sunbird trainers. As advised, the tightening muscles and hydration needs require immediate attention to stave off any potential injury as the mileage and intensity would increase over the next few weeks.
With the Basebuild phase completed, the Sunbird program will progress on to doing a number of 30km at target Marathon Pace in the following few weekend sessions, albeit on flatter and more pace-able terrain.
The Sunbirds are enjoying their training and pleased to see results from their increased strength, faster pace and for a number of them, decreased weight making LSDs even more attainable and enjoyable.
The Sunbirds Passed Basebuild Strong!
