Year-round, the AATC hosts Tuesday night workouts. The workouts are coached interval workouts held on a 200 meter indoor track from November to March and a 400 meter outdoor track from April to October. The only exceptions are December 19 and 26, 2017 (no workouts) and June 19 - July 24, 2018 (when we meet in Gallup Park). See schedule below.
During the winter months, we often also have a group practicing Shot Put.
At the front are talented and dedicated athletes but just as much a part of the workouts are new and long-time participants that run for fun, to stay in shape, to get back into shape, or are training for a personal best in an upcoming race.
The interval workouts are short and intense, which many people enjoy as a nice change from their longer, slower runs during other days of the week. The total distance of hard intervals in a workout is about 5 km (3.1 miles). The workouts are designed to improve your 5k and shorter track races ranging from 400 meters to 2 miles. The workouts will also help runners targeting longer races like 10k, half marathon, or marathon, by improving leg turnover, form, and stamina. And whether you race or not, everyone enjoys the fitness and comaraderie of the workouts.
Since the AATC has rented indoor and outdoor tracks for the exclusive use of the AATC adult workouts during the scheduled times, we ask that you follow the program described at the start of each workout and posted below. This is required for the safety of all participants and to make the organized workout possible.
So if you haven't been to a Tuesday night workout - give it a try. Nobody is too slow or too fast.
We will meet on the UM Indoor Track in the field house just off of State Street south of Hoover Avenue on November 7 and 14 only. Enter the gate north of Yost Arena and drive about 200 yards. The address is 1150 S. State Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48104.
Then for the remainder of the indoor season we will meet on the EMU Indoor Track in Bowen Field House on EMU's campus. From Washtenaw Ave go north on Oakwood St,, turn right on Structure Dr, and park in the parking lot next to Bowen Fieldhouse ($1.50/hr). If this lot is full, there is additional visitor pay parking further north on Oakwood St. by the EMU Student Center.
In both locations, the track opens at 7:00 p.m. and participants warm up on their own. The workout starts at 7:30 p.m.
The AATC will have exclusive use of the indoor track from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. The cost per session is $5 for members and $7 for non-members. Members have the option of buying a season pass for $40 or a family pass for $100 (for family members of high school age and up).
Note that there will be no workouts on December 19 and 26.
