Columba - your running is going so well at the moment.
Yes, aqua jogging.It was suggested to me by the doctor at the start of my lay-off, but just couldn't get myself to do it. It is also winter here, so 1. don't like to have to get in the car to go and do any exercise, and 2. getting into togs in the winter and doing something that I had no idea how to do was not really appealing.
I watched a video on u tube to see how it is done, and the pool I went to, had these belt things that you put on. They had a small pool just for water walking/running. So you just go up and down, around in circles. Not sure it if did any good, but I did use my arms quite a bit.
My leg is still not 100% but I'm starting to think it might not ever get back to that.
I had a 2 hr walk on the bush tracks yesterday. Not very far in distance, but lots of mud, uphills, downhills, creek crossing, tree roots etc. Part of the Hilary trail, probably a bit too much downhill, as that seems to hurt my leg a bit more, but great to be out in the bush.
