With the horse-racing season fast approaching, trainers and thoroughbred racehorses everywhere are preparing for their shot at the famous Triple Crown. Racehorses don’t just show up to the track and win, though; they must train for it like any other athlete, which is exactly what we are going to do—train like racehorses!
There is no better way to do this than with interval training. We will be performing a variety of short intervals across different terrains. Our ride will be broken up into two parts. For the first part, we will be working on interval training, or “breezes,” which is racing terminology for short efforts that are intended to build strength and speed. Our breezes are short and intense; each are 45 seconds or less, which would equate to approximately four furlongs if we were running on four legs.
For the last 10 minutes of our ride, we will have the opportunity to work on our race pace, finishing hard and strong with an above-threshold effort. So make sure save something for the finish!
