Aqua-Whatting??

I love to run. I love to jump. I love to plank. I love anything that gets your heart rate bumpin’ and leggies’ movin’. I am a land-based exercise lover. Well now-past tense- “was”..read on.

I experienced a bump in the freaken’ road with injury. A stress fracture. Probably could be classified as the Runner’s Voldermordt of injury. No running for at-least a month? Now I am no all-star runner, but I know you fellow runners feel that GULP of a pain in your tummy right about now.

So I got me those goggles, flippers, and suit and just started swimmin’. Well Aqua-Jogging to be exact.

Horses and Uber-Ultra-Marathoners Aqua-Jog to keep up fitness? Yeah right, I thought. I pictured an elderly lady with a swim cap bobbing up and down in the pool.

I felt like a fish without water. If a horse can do it so can I, I think? So I gave it a try and I Aqua-Jogged for 30 days. Those 30 turned me into an Aqua-Jogging Nemo.

What a bomb.com workout AND you get to wear a sweet water belt?

Not only did I stay in the running shape of my liking, but I also felt even stronger hitting the pavement then I did pre-injury…

(Even with my eyes closed)

So for those of you who are struggling with an injury that requires no high-impact exercising for a lengthy amount of time, tighten that water belt and slide on in. All you have to do is get to the other side of the pool and remember don’t. GULP. the. water.
