Yesterday I deep water ran 1.5k in the pool! Not easy! I did 5x5min intervals and managed to knock it off it just under 45 minutes!
I shared the aqua jogging lane with a blind guy. He bungyed himself to the lane divider and swam in place while I charged up and down. We coexisted very happily.
I'm still enjoying deep water running. I may get too fond of it and never want to run on dry land again! You keep relatively cool, there's no stress on your legs, you get to smell of chlorine 24/7 and you get a nice raisin pattern on your fingers. What's not to love!
The day was completed by a lovely BBQ brunch...just like the land runners do!
