#TrainingTipTuesday Video: Speed Training for Cross Country

Do you know your cross country speeds?

Pace training isn’t the sexiest thing in the world, but it’s key to finding success as you step up the levels (and even before). I know I’ve always struggled with that feeling of, “well, it felt fast!” out on course, and balancing that with the notion of not wanting to crack on out of control. I needed to get more comfortable with the meters per minute for my level — and it wasn’t about “making the time” (let’s face it, at lower levels, making the time isn’t typically an issue for a reason!). Rather, it was about understanding that I needed to be more comfortable going forward, learning how to feel my pace.

This tip video taken from a British Eventing training playlist (you can check out the full playlist on YouTube here) has some helpful advice on learning speed and pace — at the end of the day, it’s about balance and adjustability! Save this one to practice with on your own.
