If you are interested in any kind of sport that involves in water, than you could probably use 5 tips for running in water. These tips, if followed, will ensure that you don’t injure yourself and that you get through the body of water running as fast as possible.
- Try to avoid running in water with dangerous animals such as snakes or crocodiles. Running in these bodies of water are a major risk to your health and safety because many of these animals could easily kill you if they wanted to. If, for some reason, you are forced to ever run in water with these animals, remember not to wear anything shiny and avoid making as much noise as possible so to not attract their attention.
- While you are running in the water, make sure to look at the water while you run. Don’t look on land or let your mind wander, because there are many hazards in water that you need to be careful to avoid such as certain kinds of fish, big rocks that if stepped on will hurt your foot and slow you down, and crevices that could cause you to twist your ankle if you step in them.
- When you’re running in water, be sure to pick your legs up higher than normal. This will decrease the amount of push the water has because less of your leg will be in the water. Be sure to find a midpoint between hardly picking your foot up at all and picking it up too much, because if you pick it up too much, you can easily tire yourself out very fast.
- If you do slip, make sure to put your hands out in front of you to avoid hitting your head on any kind of rock. Do this because the major part of your body that you want to avoid getting hurt is your head, so be wary of falling and be ready if it does happen.
- Do not try and go too fast. This will, first of all, tire you out and not get you much further than normal. But, it also puts you at a greater risk of stepping on something such as a rock or fish, or tripping and hurting yourself!
