Question about word order

If you begin a sentence with a subordinate clause (which therefore has reversed word-order), does that mean that the main clause goes VERB - PRONOUN? eg. Obwohl wir viele Freizeit hatten, wir gingen... OR gingen wir...? Thanks!

Firstly, "Freizeit" is non-countable, so you would have to say "Obwohl wir viel Freizeit hatten", and secondly, you start with the verb: "gingen wir"
