The Countdown Begins. 100 Days of the Underwater Run to London

If you are a running enthusiast who likes to stay up to date and learn from the training methods of elite runners like Mo Farah and Galen Rupp, you have to check out our latest creation:

The Underwater Run to London site was launched to highlight the running journeys of elite distance Coach Alberto Salazar and his Oregon Project Runners, including Galen Rupp and Mo Farah. These London hopefuls are passionate believers and users of HydroWorx pools and underwater treadmills and are changing the way elite runners are training through the use of underwater treadmill technology.

Salazar and the Oregon Project runners rely on water workouts to:

  • Supplement outside land training with 30-40 minute water runs 4-5 times/week
  • Safely keep training to prevent de-conditioning if injured
  • Increase weekly mileage for important competitions without increasing the risk of injury
  • Create a constant state of active recovery using water’s unique healing properties during runs

Be sure to check out the site for insider training videos and to learn how these athletes are gaining a competitive advantage by running underwater.  With only 100 days until the games in London, check back often for frequent updates regarding the Oregon Project runners.
