Page 8 January 13th, 2011 • Valley News & Views Food and Nutrition Specialist, "Mom, are you OK?" my 12-year-old daughter asked as she glanced back at me over her shoulder. She was hiking along wearing her new snowshoes. She had veered off course and was blazing her own trail to follow chattering birds chasing an owl in the trees overhead. The late- December day was sunny and fairly warm by North Dakota standards. "Yes, I'm on my way," I said, trying to sound more energetic than I felt. I felt as'though I was on the trail of Bigfoot wearing clown shoes. I carefully followed her large footprints on the snowbanks, leaving large footprints of my own. Sometimes I sank in the soft snow when I got.off the trail, but most of the time our snowshoes helped distribute our weight as we "floated" on the snowbanks. With ample amounts of snow available this season, snowshoes are proving to be a good investment for us in the quest to stay fit and have some fun during the long winter months. We are getting heart-healthy aerobic workouts, and I am discovering some underused muscles in my legs. Unlike cross-country skiing, which took a little time to master, snowshoeing isquite a bit easier. Several types and sizes of snowshoes are available atvaryingprices. Ours have a lightweight aluminum frame, cleats and decking made of synthetic material. They allow us to wear our winter boots and simply adjust the strap in the back to fit around our boots. Traditional snowshoes were made of wood with webbing. These would be the ones you might associate with fur trappers in historical photos. Snowshoes have a long history throughout the world, and snowshoes of all types were common among early American Indian tribes. Today's runners may want to take note that adding snowshoeing to their workout routine may b e more valuable to staying in shape than running, according to a six-week study by the University of Vermont. The number of calories you burn will vary depending on whether you are wal.king on packed or unpacked snow, according to another University of Vermont study. According to the results, people snowshoeing on packed snow at just under 4 miles per hour burned the same number of calories as people walking on a treadmill at 6 miles per hour. People snowshoeing on unpacked snow at about 3 miles per hour burned the same number of calories as people walking 6 miles per hour on a treadmill. If you decide to enjoy the great outdoors on snowshoes, be sure to dress properly. Wear several layers of lightweight items so you can add or remove items of clothing. Instead of wearing cotton or another natural fiber nearest your skin, choose a synthetic fiber such as some of the high-tech Ill II I 11II II IIII I I I IIII II111111111111 111111 II IIIIII IIII II [111 II We reserve the right to limit quantities• Not all sate items available at all participating stores.
