New shoes fit bill for winter runners

LAURA CARPENTER

December 18, 2005

For every runner who has fallen during winter training (or, like me, had the grace to slip while jaywalking in front of a cop), a trail running shoe that gives us a grip is ideal.

Now there may be a solution for runners who detest the idea of strapping cleats over their regular shoes.

Imported from Sweden, a place with plenty of its own freeze-thaw-freeze cycles, Icebugs are more than light, dry running shoes. They offer peace of mind too.

My days of strapping cleats over my regular shoes are over. The slip-ons, which can shift and clank uncomfortably on roads, now seem like rubber bands with short spikes.

Start with the basics, then firm up flab

Dave Patania

Dec. 14, 2005

Question: I am a 36-year-old female with flabby arms and rear end. I don't exercise enough, I confess. What are the best exercises for these areas?

Answer: If you haven't been exercising regularly, it is important that you start slowly, with a basic, whole-body approach.

Resistance training is for everyone Move over, Arnold

By Ronnie Lynn

Claira Reyes works with a water paddle during a water aerobics class at Hartvigsen School in Salt Lake City. Resistance training has numerous health benefits. (Trent Nelson/The Salt Lake Tribune) Ten years into her weight-lifting routine, Pattie DeNunzio still hasn't bulked up to manly proportions. Contrary to many women's perceptions about resistance training, DeNunzio has no veins popping out of her neck. No thunder thighs. No abnormal-looking arms.

Instead, the 47-year-old Salt Lake City woman has defined biceps and legs strong enough to complete the MS-150, the annual 150-mile bike ride sponsored by the Utah chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, each summer. And while she's at it, she's keeping her bones strong and slowing the muscle loss that starts slipping away every year after age 30. "As you get older, I think it's really important to do what you can to maintain your bone and muscle strength," she says. She's right.

Unique Fitness - Muscle Soreness

12/06/2005

By CLAUDIA BOTTHOF

Muscle soreness is often associated with unaccustomed physical activity and can be experienced by a beginner who starts exercising, a professional football athlete who lifted heavy weights, or a hobby gardener who just raked leaves for several hours. Muscle soreness is often perceived as pain that should be avoided. Understanding the cause, benefit and prevention of muscle soreness will help to minimize early dropouts from the gym or to avoid strenuous physical activity all together.

The first kind of pain can be experienced as acute muscle soreness, which occurs at the end or immediately after a workout. Repeated contraction of a muscle causes lactic acid and other chemical waste products to build up. In addition, a shift of blood plasma fluid into the tissues (osmotic pressure) causes a localized edema, which is usually described as swelling. Usually, this sensation of pain is short lived and stops after a few minutes to several hours after the end of the activity.

New runners can learn from veterans

December 06, 2005

JACKIE MIRON

If you are a new runner, or new to the racing scene, advice from other runners is helpful in many areas including training, nutrition, hydration, shoes, gear, stretching and injury prevention.

One area of intrigue is talking with experienced runners about their pre-race rituals, whether for 5K, or a marathon. Tips were given in a previous column about preparing for race, such as what to do the night before, as well as what to do the morning of a race.

Feedback was positive and runners asked more specific questions. Three local runners were then questioned on their pre-race rituals, and here is what they had to say:

Norm Buskey,a longtime runner and racer from Fayetteville, is methodical and ritualistic in race preparation. The night before races, he has a simple and light meal, usually consisting of spaghetti. That meal follows a day of lighter eating, where no snacks are consumed.
