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.
Distance ace Jack McLoughlin gave SwimSwam the report from down under about how COVID-19 has affected life in Australia. Other than Australia being affected 1-2 weeks later many other countries by the virus, it seems like a pretty similar situation. McLoughlin is worried about keeping aerobic base and feel in the water since his primary races are middle distance freestyle, but he’s also trying to stay optimistic and engaged through activities like surfing, biking, and swimming on a bungee when he can.
