Anybody tried it? Anybody have a weight to lend me?
I've done it for up to three hours at a time (panic training for a marathon after a gin / high heels insterface went wrong). It's very boring, luckily the pool I was at the lifeguards had a radio on. I did 15 minutes of variations of leg things http://www.aquajogger.com/blog/?page_id=125 followed by swimming two lengths to break it up. I borrowed a belt off a friend.
Wow - 3 hours???
Is it comparable to running at the same intensity / duration?
GB I have an aqua jogger belt (but no weights) that you can have
I did it with a waterproof MP3 on and a herd of pensioners staring at me. I did build up a sweat (odd in water)
No msg in inbox here but the forum PM doesn't always work. I've messaged you on FB -( or a complete stranger saying Is that you Golden Boots......)
Interesting. most people have a problem with a lack of bouyancy, and so need floats rather than weights when aqua-runnng.
Water might seem to be a safe place to run but it provides a heck of a lot of resistance. People with knee problems are advised not to breaststroke. I would be very careful with an ankle. It might not be the right thing to do.
I did aqua jogging (at first with a belt, then found I didnt need it, unfortunately I had plenty of natural bouyancy). I could only go at one pace - slightly slower than the breaststroking grannies.
