Speed sessions start May 3rd at Dodge Park

It’s that time of year again. This Tuesday, May 3rd marks the return of the Dodge Park speed training sessions led by our very own Dani Miller. These sessions are free and open to all paces. They are held at Dodge Park in Sterling Heights at 6:30 PM every Tuesday from May through September. We will provide recommended paces based upon your current 5k or 10k fitness levels. The group does a 1 to 1-1/2 mile warm up and the speed training session starts at 7:00. A typical session is from 2-1/2 to 3 miles in of work at your current 5k fitness pace. An example would be 5 to 6 1/2 mile runs at fitness pace with a 1/2 mile jog in between. Stop by and learn more.

FYI - There is a lot of construction on Dodge Park Road.  You can only travel south on Dodge Park Road between 16 and 17 Mile Roads.
