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.
Outdoor workouts start April 3th 2018. We will meet on the UM Outdoor Track just off of State Street south of Hoover Avenue. Enter the gate north of Yost Arena and drive about 100 yards. The address is 1150 S. State Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48104.
Note that from June 19 through July 24, we will meet at the wooden bridge in Gallup Park (the one that cars can drive over). See schedule below.
Participants warm up on their own starting at around 6:30 p.m. and the workout starts at 7:00 p.m. Workouts are scheduled for AATC members; non-members are welcome to take a test drive but should join the AATC if they enjoy the workouts and the club.
Scheduled workouts are shown below.
