Walking any distance is impossible

In my previous incarnation as a Y member [employer subsidized membership], i recall people doing water aerobics in the shallow end of the pool. The viscosity of the water increases the required muscle effort, while the buoyancy reduces impact and weight loading on the legs/feet. i have also found that some swimming strokes can be done without the use of the legs [slow backstroke, skulling]. The aerobic benefits of these slow strokes are less than the benefits of standard lap-swimming, but epsilon is greater than zero.

Perhaps the solution to the walk/don't-walk conundrum is to get wet.
