Anyone know how many calories are burned pool running? does it equate to land running somehow?
i figured if you convert it to the equivalent distance you'd cover on land and use 110 cal/mile you'll get close.
- 5 mins warmup
- 2 sets of 5x1:30 hard (30sec easy) with 2 mins easy,
- 5 mins cool down
if that was on land with easy at 8:00 pace and hard at 6:00 pace it would be 15 mins at 6:00, and 17 mins at 8:00, or just over 4.5 miles, so calories burned would be probably around 500.
i know pool running heart rate is lower due to water pressure etc, so can't really use that as a guide.
just trying to balance exercise/diet during the next few months of lovely pool running.....
