GLENNASUESUE my pool trainer helped me - she suggested that I treat the pool treadmill as a 10-15% incline on regular treadmill and add 0.50 to the speed to adjust (example if i walked 25 min. on the water treadmill at 2.5 MPH with no incline.to count as land treadmill at 10% incline and 3.0 MPH)
There is a water aerobic choice in the fitness choices that I use.
NAIJAPIKIN please give the pool a try! I am in my mid fifties and I am not allowed to shave due to my lymph issues. I actually find that most ladies at my therapy pool don't notice and that when I use regular pools a long coverup helps me be discrete. I used to wear a tank with skirt suit - and noticed that many of the ladies do. You can get the skirt fitted or more draped. There are also Swim shorts at are available. The doctors don't want elastic at my upper leg anymore so I had to find a different way. Now I workout in a sheered tank top (it is kinda like a tank-tini top) and water capri that are a type of triathlon wear. They have suits called swimtards that are nice too as they go to the knee (similar to the suits that the Olympians wore)
Hope this helps!
