I have just tried aqua jogging my usual speed sessions instead of running them as advised by a physio (I have an achilles injury which is aggravated by speedwork and hills).
I think I got the hang of it but I felt no where near as tired as I would if I did the same session as a proper run. Is this normal or does that mean that my technique was wrong? I felt I was going as hard as I could on the reps but I was not as out of breath or tired as usual and recovered much more quickly.
It did not feel as though I had as good a workout and I don't want to waste my time unless it is worth it. When I do the session on a gym bike, I can get that same hard feeling but I want to keep the training as running specific as possible.
I was not wearing a heart rate monitor but I suppose that might give me a better idea.
any advise anyone would be appreciated.
