This is how I trained for the Naperville Half two years ago. I was one run away from a stress fracture (caused by 2 large puppies, not running!) with a stress reaction. Doctor said no running to train and gave me the ok to run one week before the race. All was good! Highly recommend!
What a great way to stay in shape while injured! Wish I had heard about this when I had my knee surgery!
Love to see aquajogging getting the attention it deserves! Such an important no-impact addition to training. Awesome article!
Thank you, Dana. It’s something Delaney FitzPatrick started to use years before. While I don’t have a running injury, I did about 20 months ago, and could have used it then, too. I’ve since given it a try with the belt, since Delaney’s well-written article, and it felt great.
