We are all trying to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic as best we can. Staying at home and not socializing is not an easy task for anyone, and keeping a swimmer out of the pool is equally antagonizing. Therefore, SwimSwam is starting the Swimming From Home Talk Show, where host Coleman Hodges speaks with the swimming community about how they’re coping with our current goggle-less reality.
I spoke with Rockwood Swim Club in St. Louis, Missouri as they’re one of many swim clubs working through the COVID-19 pandemic. There were 2 coaches on the call as well as 3 swimmers, ranging in age, to make things really interesting and give a lot of different perspectives. Topics covered included how they’re feeling during this time stuck at home, how they’re coping with very little structure, and their favorite swimming memories.
