This newsletter is a quick check in to see how you are holding up during this COVID Lockdown 2.0. I know this time can be a very real struggle for many. For me it’s the uncertainly I find the hardest. But while it’s challenging, I’m also confident we will come out on the other side. I hope the photo above provides you with some inspiration. It’s a throwback to a few years ago, taken on a cold winter’s Saturday morning at Prince Alfred Park Pool. It serves as a great reminder of the times we’ve had and the ones to come.
How are you filling in your time at home? Are you reading or giving your Netflix subscription a good workout like me? Some of our swimmers are able to exercise by swimming at the beach (the beach is within their LGA or a 10km radius from their home) others I know are taking virtual fitness classes or walking around their neighbourhood. I can’t tell you how important it is to keep exercising, not just for your physical wellbeing but also for your mental health. I urge you to fit some form of exercise into each day.
On a positive note the Olympics in Tokyo start on the 23rd July. A great distraction. We can barrack from the couch for our favourite sportsperson. As you’d expect, I’m particularly looking forward to the swimming! We’ve put a link to a great website where you can access the timetable of events, further down in the newsletter.
Art, our Administration and Customer Service whizz, and I are still working throughout this lockdown, so if you have any questions at all, please feel free to get in touch.
Please stay safe, keep well and stay strong. We hope to see you soon.
As always, yours in swimming,
