Aqua Jogging Is A Great Workout

Thursday, January 24, 2013

I've been aqua jogging this week and I've found it to be a great workout. It is rather boring but I've decided to let my mind relax and just wonder while I jog. I've also found that continuous jogging for an hour or two is quite challenging! It doesn't feel like anything initially because the pace isn't as brisk as regular jogging. However, the water adds resistance that you don't have when jogging on land. I felt great after my jog; energized and ready to go! I drove to the store to do some shopping but when I got back into the car, I could really feel the fatigue from my workout. Even at a slow, steady pace, the continuous exercise with the added resistance, added up to a big workout. One of the guards reminded me that 15 minutes of aqua jogging gives you the same workout that you would get in 30 minutes of regular jogging. That is why runners aqua jog to improve their pace and race times. No wonder I'm tired. I should sleep good tonight!

    I have to keep that in mind. I do a water aerobics class regularly, but sometimes when there is no class, I can water jog instead and still get a workout. Thanks for sharing.
