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 ...

Extraterrestrial Full Moon Midnight Marathon

Calico Racing was born on a 15 mile run at Red Rock Canyon, just outside of Las Vegas. Recently back from a fantastic ultramarathon and vacation up in Moab I felt completely at peace surrounded by the serenity of the canyons. Though thoughts of putting on races in Las Vegas' beautiful places had crossed my mind for years, this would be the day I put that dream into motion. Since I started racing in 2002 I always found myself attracted to doing new events each year- it's the wanderlust Sagittarian in me. To date, there are only 2 events that I have done more than once, and that was more of a logistical choice. Now, with 54 marathons in 27 states, 8 Ironman triathlons, 10 ultramarathons (including Comrades and 1 x 100 miler), and crew/ pacing for Badwater four times, as well as racing and volunteering numerous short course events all on different courses, I have come to consider myself a bit of a connoisseur of running and triathlon events. (I realize to many of you ultrarunners out there reading this, that may seem like a year's worth of racing!)
