Benefits of Water Running and Walking

Legs must find the most efficient mechanical path through the water. Extraneous motions of the feet and legs are reduced or eliminated over time. The water’s resistance strengthens muscles which can serve as back-up strength to the primary running/walking muscles.

These smaller “reserve” muscles will also be able to keep you going for a little while if you overuse the main running/walking muscles and need some help to keep going during the last few miles in the half or full marathon. You get a great cardiovascular training session without any pounding. Since the prime running/walking muscles are not being used, most injuries can heal.
