Are you injured? want to keep the running fitness you had before the injury? This is my signature water running plan that I give to my own athletes who are dealing with injury. all water running is done in the deep water, with a water running belt.
This is 5 weeks of progressive water running and swimming.
we will keep you swimming to maintain your fitness in that area as well.
I once had an injury and followed this plan for a month. I came back and ran my fastest 10km ever. I had gone into the injury super fit, and maintained that fitness through this plan.
It is FUN, it is motivating and it will keep you strong, fit and fast!!!
focus on what you CAN DO, not on what you can't!!!
you can be injured and still be progressing in the sport.
Happy Healing! Siri:)
