Teach her to retrieve a ball and then take her to the park or a beach and throw the ball for a few minutes. I second swimming as a top level exercise. Swimming exercises almost every muscle in the dogs body. You do not need to get wet if you have taught the dog to (a) retrieve a tennis ball and (b) you have taught her to like water. Just throw the ball into the water and let her bring it back.

If she does neither then you still do not need to get wet except up to your knees - well I guess it depends on how tall you are. Take the dog into the water on lead until he is swimming then stand and hold the tail, control the head with the lead and keep it up. A 10 minute swim is equal to a 5 kilometer walk.
