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.
Ryan Held takes us through his whirlwind few weeks when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, including his brief stint at training at the Alabama Yacht Club. After the Olympic Games were postponed, however, Held stopped swimming there and eventually returned to his home town of Springfield, Illinois. He’s trying to maintain cardio and strength at his parents’ house now, and other than that he’s been watching 30-for-30’s on ESPN and biking more.
