One step at a time

If you are looking for a fast, affordable, adaptable way to get back into shape and you don’t have any problems with high-impact activities, give running a try. It’s a wonderful way to kick-start your cardiovascular system and your metabolism, as well as improve your health and keep you feeling great!

However, too much too soon is not a good idea. The gradual approach is key, especially with high-impact activities. Running puts incredible stress on your bones, joints and muscles with every step you take. Over time, your body is able to adapt to these stresses and is better able to handle them. See below for some tips on how to run and stay injury-free:

  1. Start out with a conservative weekly mileage. This will vary depending on your fitness level. You may start out at 3 x 20-minute runs per week, or if you already have some experience with running, then 5 x 30 to 35 minutes might be a good start for you.
  2. Increase your weekly mileage in small increments. The most common recommendation is to increase it 5 to 10 percent per week. You can do this by either increasing the number of days you run per week, or by increasing the distance / time you run each workout. Following this protocol gives your bones, joints and muscles time to adapt to the increased impact they need to withstand.
  3. Recovery days / weeks are important. Every week should have one or two rest days, meaning no running. Also, make sure to take a lower mileage week, every 3 weeks or so, as a recovery week. Getting enough recovery is almost important as the actual workouts. Just plan in an extra rest day or switch out your run with lower-impact activities such as biking or swimming.
  4. Stay off the sidewalks. Yes, I realize they are there for pedestrians but sidewalks were not built with runners in mind. Concrete is the hardest surface to run on, while asphalt has a bit more give to it. Running on gravel or dirt trails is ideal, as well as grass, as ...

he Swan Lake Marathon, 1/2 Marathon, and 5.3 mile run web site! We are glad that you are interested in this race. Here you will find information that will help you plan for this event. The Swan Lake Marathon and shorter races are held in cooperation with Swan Lake Christian Camp. After expenses all the proceeds from the Swan Lake Marathon and other races go towards Swan Lake Christian Camp's general fund. Donations can also be made towards camper scholarships. Not all children can afford coming to camp and Swan Lake will never turn someone away. The parents are told to pay what they can and the monies from camper scholarships cover the difference in cost.We want this to be a family friendly marathon so there are a few things that cater to this. The pasta meal on Saturday is affordable and the Sunday noon meal is a free will donation for participants, families. There will also be activities and events that the families of participants can enjoy during the race or afterwards including frisbee golf, swimming, canoeing etc. We want to honor God this weekend and feel free to give us suggestions as to how we can make it better

Fast forward six years into this incredibly successful event. Are we still a cow town? Should the event abandon this identity, or worse, the cows themselves? Doesn't matter. In 2010, the event was once again renamed. Fort Worth, Texas Cowtown Marathon officials notified the event that they owned the service mark rights to the name"Cowtown" and, therefore, wanted exclusive rights to it. After a nationwide renaming contest, The Urban Cow Half Marathon was born. There is no longer a marathon offered and the event now includes a half marathon, two-person half marathon relay, and 5k run/walk. We expect over 6,000 participants for this year's edition presented by the Buzz Oates Group of Companies and Clark's Corner
