A very useful feedback session followed the 17km tempo run over challenging terrain, with Kingfishers able to sustain the specified target paces, due in part to the foundation built up over the past few weeks, helped along by guidance and tips provided by the training crew. The Kingfishers training crew and trainees also put to effective use their newly acquired Soleus GPS watches to keep pace and track the distances
There were a few important lessons learnt, chiefly not starting out too hard and maintaining a sustainable target pace as much as possible. The other key takeaway for many of the trainees was the importance of having a reliable hydration plan and having proper replacements of water and electrolytes to provide the engines with smooth strokes for optimal performance.
With the first half of base building and strength conditioning completed, Kingfishers will embark on the second half of the program with anticipation as we will be doing pace training on more gradual terrain, using the new found strength and speed attained thus far.
