Issue Cover

Outdoor Swimmer  |  May 20  

Are you missing the open water? This month we have a bumper issue to keep your mind and body sharp while we are in lockdown.
In this issue we hear lockdown tales from swimmers from around the world; we meet writer Lucy Jones, whose new book explores the science behind the benefits of being outdoors in nature; in her monthly history feature, Elaine Howley looks at open water swimming in the time of other pandemics; Lindsey Cole considers the healing effect of cold water swimming; Olympic medallist Cassie Patten tells us how open water swimming took her from Cornwall to Beijing; and Rob Hutchings recounts an adventure swim down the length of New Zealand's fastest flowing river. .. read more And our training section this issue might be pretty dry, but it is packed full of land-based exercises and videos to keep you swimfit while in lockdown.
"I love the online edition, particularly the videos and the linked articles to other web pages.. it's so great. Maybe it's the sound of swimming in the water that makes it so amazing. I am only up to page 45, not even half way through!"  read less
