My mom convinced me to go pool running.

My favorite lunch spot lately.  I just can’t stray from the BBQ Chicken Wrap.  Utah people- this is from Cafe Fresh.  I clearly love restaurants that start with the word cafe.

IMG 8470

My mom told me yesterday that walking isn’t going to keep up my running fitness.  Mothers always know best.  She told me it would be a really good idea to hit the pool for some pool running.  I think I made up 982 excuses to not go but she had rebuttals for all of them (she even gave me a swim cap because I said I didn’t want chlorine in my hair since I just had it bleached.  She also said she would stay home while Brooke napped so I could go).

She knows I thrive off of endorphins and pool running always gets my heart rate WAY UP and the endorphins flowing.  I did a post all about pool running here.

I believe that this is by far the best way to keep up your running fitness when you aren’t running.  Boring but crazy effective.  You gotta do what you gotta do.  Thanks mom for getting me out the door.

NewImage

Workout:  30 minutes at medium/hard effort and then 30 seconds x 5 at HARD effort.   

The endorphins came and I felt much better afterward.  I took my pulse after some of my 30 second ‘sprints’ and my heart rate was around 190.  Really, it is no joke.  Running + all of the resistance from the water = this will keep my endurance up.

Quick wardrobe change to get froyo and go to the park.  This will be a daily summer tradition.

As I was leaving Cafe Fresh I asked them if I could buy some of their tortillas.  They are by far my favorite tortillas and they sold a pack of 12 to me.  Little did they know that they brightened my whole week.  

Dinner was a copy cat of lunch.  Chicken, rice, corn, lettuce, bbq and Tortilla bigger than my dinner plate.

IMG 8483

You need to make these now.

AMAZING Muddy Buddies:

1 box chex cereal

1 package almond bark

1 box funfetti cake mix

Melt the chocolate according to the directions.  Pour over cereal and stir gently until cereal is covered.  Then dump the cake mix on top and toss to coat.

I then went to bed at 7:30 because a cold hit me hard after dinner.  Here’s to waking up  (I write these posts at night) feeling a million times better!

Who has tried pool running out?!?! Thoughts?

Anyone else having really good weather right now? What are the temps like where you are?

Favorite place to get lunch lately?

I tried it a few months ago for the first time but it works SO well, it’s my go-to when I feel like I shouldn’t run but don’t want to miss training. I do it in deep water with no belt and it’s a killer!! I almost never eat lunch out so I don’t have a favorite lunch spot…unless coffee or milkshake stops count ;)

Reply

I would love to try pool running! What is the thing you need called? I need to try and build up my stamina a little more.

The weather here is really nice at the moment. The sun is shining, and it’s 48F. Last night it rained HARD, so the day feels lovely and fresh.

I usually write posts… whenever I can! And when I think I have something mildly interesting…. it usually ends up being on my lunch break, or just after work.

Happy pool running!

When I went through my whole hip injury/surgery thing I did HOURS and HOURS of pool running. It really helped me because it was the closest thing that I could do to simulate running without actually running.
Sending you happy thoughts for quick recovery!

I’ve tried out water aerobics, and they do incorporate some running into the workout. We didn’t use floaters like the one in your pic tho…how is that different from a kick board?

Reply

Pool running is so hard for me to motivate myself to do. When I ran track and cross country for the last three years my coach made us do it every Wednesday and I hated it. Maybe it’s because as a former swimmer for 15 years I found it difficult to get my heart rate up or feel like I was getting a workout in, but for some reason I just couldn’t work up a sweat! I’m glad you have found it super helpful though. I do think it’s a great way to mimic running without stressing your legs!

Reply

Brooke’s face is so cute! AH!

I did a lot of pool running during my cyst injury in college. It preserved my fitness and I was able to run a college XC Pr after a week or running. It was fantastic. My coach always said that pool running is what you make of it. If you “slog” your miles then it will reflect on that. If you up the intensity…it will reflect.

I write my posts in the mornings…race recaps I try and write the day after the race so I don’t forget anything but have time to reflect!

Fave place to get lunch–AT MY SCHOOL!!!! The culinary program is top notch and they make AMAZING buffalo chicken, i cannot pass it up, ever. Amazing.

Happy pool running! I have never done it before but i know that one of these days, i could be in a situation where I have to try it!

I wish it was warm here. It’s sunny but very very cold–12. Boo.

FEEL BETTER and get some rest!!

I have never tried pool running but I’d like it, it sounds like a great workout!

Yesterday it was 80 degrees and sunny here :) Beautiful for most people, but scary for me since I am not ready for it to get back into the upper 80s. Running in warm weather is okay, but running when its 87 even when the sun is down is kind of annoying for me.

Yikes! I hope you feel better. I am fighting a cold courtesy of the little boy behind me in church Sunday who sneezed on me three times. :-(

I did a lot of pool running over the summer while my broken ankle healed. It felt great to be able to move!

We are NOT having great weather right now. It’s horrible. We had snow Tuesday, single digits yesterday and today, winter mix tomorrow and another substantial storm coming Sunday into Monday. I am so ready for warmer weather!!

I write my posts whenever I find time. I try to do it on a regular schedule, but that doesn’t really exist in my life right now.

Never tried pool running but I hear it’s super hard! Good for you for doing it! Since I can’t run right now I’ve thought about swimming I just can’t get up the motivation… Favorite lunch place is which wich (or fast food, dang you pregnancy)! And yes the high is 60 here today :)

Two things:
1. I needed this pool running encouragement right now. I’m struggling with a hip flexor injury that just doesn’t seem to want to heal. It is SO frustrating and I miss my long runs!
2. The beauty of your photos, with the snow capped mountains in the background amaze me! Even if they’re cell pix, I can’t imagine living where this is a daily sight! I live in flat, sea-level Florida and wish I had your backdrop!

Reply

Hey hun, be sure to talk to your physiotherapist (or whoever you’re seeing) before starting pool running. It tends to overwork the hip flexors (and hammies) which may aggravate your injury. Good luck!

Reply

The temps are COLD! This winter has been brutal for runners especially runners who can’t use their treadmill because when they moved they lost the screws for it! (a piece of it actually broke off in the move too)
I am not a pool fan
I write my posts at all different times (I have no consistency which is probably bad) but usually at night

Does it need to be a special pool to work? I want to try it!

Brooke looks a lot like Curly in that slide pic! I have never thought they looked alike before. :)

No pool running here. I haven’t ever been injured though, so I’ve never not been able to run because of that (I usually can’t run because I don’t have time and pool running doesn’t solve that problem).

And I can’t wait for summer days at the park with my son!!! It snowed yesterday morning and today the high is 30, so no nice weather here. Boo.

Reply

I’m glad your mom talked you into going pool running! My husband’s uncle swears by it. He ran track in high school and college and did a lot of pool running after an injury in college. He was actually able to *gain* fitness by pool running during his injury–he was surprised that he was actually faster than one of his teammates after his injury when the teammate used to be faster than him. Hopefully you’ll be able to gain some fitness, too!

Ah the days of hitting the playground, life was so much simpler then. Hope you get over your cold real quick.

Pool Running – Have not tried, but I have had ITB pain and that was the suggested exercise
Weather – AZ has been pretty amazing lately, although it makes my lunch break runs pretty hot
Lunch – Still Chipotle, I dont think I will ever get over this place

I spent all spring last year pool-running- and it is absolutely NO JOKE.

My favorite is to do a ladder workout with increasing time for the hard intervals- start with 20 minutes medium effort, then begin with 30 sec hard effort, building to 4 minutes of hard effort w/ 2 minute recovery “jogs” at easy/medium effort- so 30sec, 1 min, 90 sec, 2 min, 2:30, 3, 3:30, 4 – then 4 min; 4 min all the way back down the ladder, finishing with 10-20 minutes of medium effort. It ends up being 36 minutes of hard effort, 28 minutes of recovery, plus another 40 minutes of warm-up/cool down for a nice long workout of nearly 1:45- so equivalent to a mid-long run or so.

I also “like” doing sprints of 2-4 minutes to simulate running 400-800m track workouts.

Cell phone in a bag is a great way to get through it! I’ve been meaning to write a post on this myself!

Reply

I love/hate pool running! I should be doing it right now, bc my IT band is messed up–>I can’t run and am getting grumpy…except the lifeguard at the university pool says the AquaJoggers are for varsity athletes only. Boo. Guess I’ll have to buy my own.

Good for you. My husband can never get me into the pool because I hate being cold and wet, even if it’s just for the first minute.

One of my old favorites is Pilpel (falafel salads) in my old city, and I spent forever last night looking for a place where I could get my standard order. Still looking!

Reply

I was struggling with an IT band injury late last winter when you mentioned pool running. Changed my life. I go three times a week now, in addition to regular road miles, and I ‘run’ for an hour. I run a half marathon every six weeks or so, and find it is just the best way to keep my aging body (I’m almost 50) tuned up with less stress to my joints. Boring? Yup, but I listen to audio books (I have a waterproof case for my ipod). So, thanks. :-)

I’ve done a few pool running workouts in Florida when it’s too hot and humid to actually run. I’ve loved them, and you’re right- they are a crazy good workout!

Too funny, but dealing with an injury and have been swimming. At the end of my laps, I do about 5 minutes of aqua jogging. Boring as hell, but I do feel good afterwards. I just ordered me some aqua shoes since the pool cuts my toes up something fierce. I’m now going to add that in to my training.

I haven’t tried pool running but I think it would be a great alternative when it’s mid summer and super hot outside! I’m just now getting back into blogging so I’m still trying to figure out when the best time for me to write my posts will be. It will most likely be during my lunch break!

I have a love hate with pool running. I know it’s beneficial, but just so boring!! We need pools to install big movie screens, so we can at least watch a movie or something while pacing the pool.

Reply

I’m so scared of trying pool running – I feel like I would just get in the water, move two inches, and then drown. I actually despise being near water of any kind (even the beach) so I think if I was sidelined from running for a while I would have to find something else. It’s awesome though that you have something to keep you in such great running shape!

Have a great day! :)

I’ve never tried pool running, but I have no doubt that it’s an amazing workout! I did lots of pool exercises when I was recovering from my ACL surgery, and it helped a ton, so I can only imagine how great pool running is for you and your body.

I’m sad the sunshine went away, but at least it’s still fairly warm for this time of year.

I typically write my blog posts for the next morning in the evening too. It just works better with my schedule that way!

Hey I did this workout yesterday and thought of you for when you can start running again. It was “Treadmill Roulette” where your speed is determined by different aspects of the song that is randomly playing. Ex: female singer=7.4, male singer=7.2. It was so much fun and made the miles fly by.

I did pool running in college every once in a while when I needed to give my leggies a break from the pounding. It is so hard!

Hi! Seasoned pool runner here. Some people move forward and do laps of the pool, others stay on the spot. With the right posture there should only be a slight tendency to move forward in my opinion; if you’re doing laps too fast your torso is probably tilted too far forward.

5.5 MONTHS of pool running and counting thanks to 3 x stress fractures, patella tendinitis, and a very slow healing body. You know, I think I’ve actually grown to like it?! The trick is to crank up some up-tempo music and do hard intervals (which can be a variety of ‘distances’ – a couple days ago I did 10 minute ones!). That said, I’ve only gotten a PROPER running high three times in all this time. I’ve also been ‘running’ on a mini trampoline for a few months, and had a couple of failed attempts at phasing back into running… I think my body hates me.

I have tried pool running before and it was one of the most borning things that I’ve ever tried! I did, however, enjoy swimming and then running super hard in place as it felt like I was doing intervals. I would make sure I would do them for as long as it took me to do 400s, and 800s, keeping my heart rate up high. What a workout and I was already in the water so I enjoyed my cool down afterwards lol. It is not hot where I am now, it’s like 6 degrees lol. I wish it were warmer, and I eat lunch at home :) Fresh fruit for lunch is my favorite and if I could eat it anywhere, it would be on top of a mountain :P
