Deep Water Running Takes Practice

Deep-water running maximal heart rate and oxygen consumption values have been consistently shown to be lower than those found during treadmill running. However, recent evidence reveals that there is less of a difference between these maximal values relative to treadmill running and DWR with increased DWR experience. MY COMMENT: The bottome line, if you use deep water running to supplement your training or as a substitute while injured, you'll improve the more you practice, as will the quality of your workout.
